Lab Testing Q and A
Lab Testing Q and A

Lab tests are important diagnostic tests in determining certain conditions. Lab tests include bloodwork, urinalysis and biopsies. These tests help physicians make a diagnosis and give doctors a better understanding of what is going on inside the body.

Can I go to an urgent care for lab testing?

Yes, absolutely! At AFC Urgent Care, we offer a wide range of lab testing, including:

Blood testing — Blood tests can help in determining the presence of a multitude of diseases and conditions, from diabetes to heart disease.

Urinalysis — Analyzing a sample of urine can reveal many aspects of your health and help determine conditions such as a UTI or kidney disorders.

STD testing — There are many different forms of STD testing, such as blood tests and urine tests, and can help diagnose a wide range of different diseases, like syphilis and HPV.

Drug testing — Drug tests are often required by the workplace, and are a simple procedure that checks for a number of different substances, like marijuana, PCP and cocaine.

Flu diagnosis — Everyone feels under the weather from time to time, but it’s not always obvious what is causing the symptoms. We can help you determine if your symptoms are due to influenza, the common cold or another virus.

Strep throat diagnosis —  Strep throat often produces a sore, scratchy throat and affects the vocal cords. At AFC Urgent Care, we can help you find out if it is caused by the streptococcal virus.

Mononucleosis diagnosis — Also known as mono or the kissing disease, we have the tools and skillset to determine an active mono infection.
