Laboratory Tests Q & A

What is included in laboratory testing?

Lab work, or laboratory testing, involves any blood, tissue, or urine analysis that looks for illnesses, imbalances, or markers of disease or health changes. Laboratory testing may be used to assess the effectiveness of your current treatment plan or determine your risk of developing a chronic disease. 

Laboratory testing is also useful if you’re having acute symptoms. 

At JEE Healthcare, laboratory tests are used to diagnose many issues, like:

  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Hormone imbalances
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood sugar
  • Nutritional imbalances

You may also undergo laboratory tests to get cleared for surgery or to find out how to maximize your energy levels. Labs can also evaluate how your stress levels are affecting your physical health.

Blood testing, urinalysis, tissue specimen testing, and other screenings are performed on-site, and Dr. Escobar receives the results quickly. 

What are the benefits of having in-office laboratory testing?

When labs are run at the office, there’s no confusion about any tests or screenings to be performed. Dr. Escobar communicates directly with the technicians and can provide any clarification if needed. 

You don’t have to worry about making an appointment at a separate facility. This eliminates travel time and delays in getting the tests run. 

Your results come back quickly, and Dr. Escobar sees these results sooner than he might if an outside provider delivers them. Ultimately, an in-office lab means you get health answers faster and without delay. 

What types of laboratory tests are performed?

The laboratory tests offered at JEE Healthcare test your blood, urine, and tissues. The tests you need depend on your health history, current symptoms, health goals, and age. 

Laboratory tests include:

  • COVID-19 testing
  • Complete blood counts
  • Metabolic panels
  • Cholesterol screenings
  • Thyroid hormone testing
  • Urine tests for pregnancy or infection
  • Pap smear analysis

Dr. Escobar may order routine labs, like blood sugar analysis for diabetics, or tests in response to symptoms you’re having, like urinalysis if you notice cloudy urine. He can also test your hormones to see if you’re in menopause (women) or low in testosterone (men). 

For an additional cost, Dr. Escobar can work with a lab group that makes house calls for blood draws. This is a good option for individuals who prefer home care.
