The Benefits of In-House Lab Services

Coastal Urgent Care strives to make sure every patient receives quick, compassionate care. That’s why walk-ins are always welcome and why we offer in-house lab services. Having access to a laboratory allows our doctors to diagnose and treat patients all in one visit. A medical center with in-house lab services has many other benefits, as well. Here are just a few ways our in-house lab services will make your visit as easy and productive as possible.

No Need for an Appointment

When you’re sick or have a minor injury, you need to find relief right away. Unfortunately, your primary doctor may not be able to get you in for some time, especially if it’s near the holidays, over the summer or you can only visit during peak hours. Even then, you might have to wait a few more days after that to get the test results back.

We see patients and offer our in-house lab services seven days a week, so you can count on seeing a doctor quickly, identifying your medical problem and receiving the treatment you need to get back on your feet.

Get Rapid Results

Our in-house lab can perform a variety of different tests, including blood and urine tests. This means you can get answers right away. If the results are positive, your urgent care doctor can treat you and send prescriptions to your pharmacy right away. If the results are negative, the doctor will be able to rule out possible conditions.

Some things Coastal Urgent Care can test for on-site include…

  • Strep
  • Tuberculosis
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Pregnancy
  • STDs
  • Flu
  • Other common infections and illnesses

Get X-rays Right Away

X-rays also provide essential insight into a wide variety of conditions, but take a long time to process when sent out to a nearby lab. Our techs offer X-rays right here at our offices, so whether you’ve twisted an ankle, broken an arm or are experiencing unexplained chest pain, we can capture images and interpret them as quickly as possible.

And it’s not just that waiting for X-rays is inconvenient. Patients who can’t receive a diagnosis quickly may accidentally worsen their injury due to overuse or simply begin healing incorrectly because of a lack of appropriate medical intervention.

Get Back To Normal Life More Quickly

Most of us would rather be spending time with family and doing what we love than waiting in a doctor’s office. That’s why we pair expert diagnosis with rapid results, so you can get on the road to wellness quickly and return to enjoying the things that matter most.
