In-Office Labs Q&A

What are in-office labs?

In-office labs allow you to get the testing you need at Atlantic Health Medical Associates. Instead of visiting your health care provider, driving to a separate location, and waiting for your results, you can receive your testing at your practitioner’s office. In-office labs are ideal for individuals without the time, resources, or patience to drive across town for lab work.

What are the different tests at the in-office lab?

Atlantic Health Medical Associates offers a full spectrum of tests at their in-office lab, such as:

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Basic metabolic panel
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
  • Coagulation panel
  • Blood enzyme test
  • Influenza (flu) test
  • Stool culture
  • Hemoglobin test
  • Liver panel
  • Drug testing
  • Pap smear
  • Biopsy

With a state-of-the-art in-office lab, the team at Atlantic Health Medical Associates can perform blood testing, urinalysis, stool testing, and many other types of lab work on-site.

How do I prepare for in-office labs?

Many labs require no preparation, but some do. Before your test, the team may give you special instructions to prepare. Some types of lab work require fasting, abstaining from sex, or discontinuing certain medications. If you divert from the instructions in any way, tell the team before the test, as these factors can alter your results.

What can I expect during in-office labs?

After your appointment with your primary care provider, they may direct you to the in-office lab. If your test requires preparation, such as fasting, they may ask you to return on a different day. 

You may need to fill out paperwork when you arrive. Next, your provider directs you into another room to perform your blood work or urinalysis. If you need a stool test, you may take a sample at home and return it to the lab.

What happens after in-office labs?

Most lab tests only take a few minutes. While some individuals receive their results within a few days, it can take one to two weeks. The team may call you to deliver your results and determine your next steps.
