Reference Lab

Our goal at Physicians East is to provide comprehensive, quality healthcare to our patients and their families by offering a full range of services including on-site pathology testing. Pathology is the study of disease and its causes. Every time a patient gives blood or any other tissue sample, it is analyzed by trained specialists in a pathology laboratory.

By having in-house laboratory capability, our patients do not have to travel to an off-site location for testing, and the process is performed in a familiar, stress-free environment. In addition, our on-site lab can process lab specimens more quickly so that our patients can be on the road to better health as soon as possible.

Our on-site laboratory uses state-of-the-art instruments to provide quick and accurate results to a wide variety of tests including:

  • Blood tests such as glucose, PT/INR (i.e., coumadin) monitoring, and cholesterol levels
  • Nasal swabs for influenza (i.e., “the flu”)
  • Pregnancy tests
  • Preventative screening tests
  • Rapid strep tests
  • Tests for sexually transmitted diseases
  • Urinalysis
