Laboratory, X-ray & ultrasound
We have an on-site laboratory staffed with qualified laboratory personnel to draw samples and perform in-house testing as needed. We can also send lab specimens to reference labs for specialized or unusual testing. The majority of our laboratory work is performed by Presbyterian Laboratory Services, though an occasional insurance plan will require the use of Lab Corp. For your convenience, most common laboratory tests that are needed right away (STAT), can be performed in our on-site laboratory. We may have you wait in the office for the result.
X-ray services are obtained in the office for more routine studies such as chest X-ray, bone and joint films, or plain abdominal films. We use digital radiology equipment which is considered to be state-of-the-art. Digital film images are immediately available to the provider for a quick diagnosis. More complicated studies are referred to Mecklenburg Radiology which has a number of office locations. Our referral staff helps coordinate the appointment with radiology scheduling.
Ultrasound services are available in our office one day per week. All studies are performed by a registered ultrasound technologist with years of experience.
