What is an in-house laboratory?

An in-house laboratory is a place to get blood, urine, and other types of lab tests done. Prosperity Internal Medicine has a laboratory on-site at their primary care clinic in Reston to provide easy access to the lab tests you need. As the practice name indicates, their goal is to truly help patients prosper, and convenient lab testing is one of the many ways they do so. 

When might I need to use the in-house laboratory?

There are many reasons that you might need to use the in-house laboratory that include: 

  • Completing blood count (CBC) or other routine tests during annual physicals
  • Finding the cause of an illness (for example, a virus)
  • Diagnosing urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Diagnosing nutrient deficiencies, like low levels of vitamin B-12 
  • Diagnosing diabetes
  • Diagnosing high cholesterol
  • Diagnosing thyroid problems
  • Getting presurgical clearance before a joint replacement or other major surgery 

Prosperity Internal Medicine offers in-house procedures, such as mole removal, as well. You might need lab testing before or after your office-based procedure. For example, lab testing can study removed skin cells and determine whether they contain malignant (cancerous) tissue. 

How do in-house laboratory visits work?

Prosperity Internal Medicine is focused on making their practice a one-stop shop for all your medical needs, so they usually fit lab testing into your exams. For example, if you have possible UTI symptoms like burning during urination, you can provide a urine sample and have testing performed right away. 

Many internal medicine practices work with outside laboratories for most of their testing, but Prosperity Internal Medicine helps you avoid all that inconvenience. You don’t have to drive anywhere else and wait to do your test it usually takes just a few minutes in the office.

You’ll also get the results almost immediately because the on-site lab can analyze your results as soon as they get your sample. If you need a lab test that requires fasting, you’ll have at least a day of notice before the test. 

Prosperity Internal Medicine has a unique approach to primary care. They treat you like an individual with special attention. This warm and personalized care includes physicals, sick care, in-house lab testing, and much more, so schedule your appointment by calling the office or using the online booking tool today.
