In-House Lab Services Q & A

What are in-house lab services?

In-house lab services available at Colorado Springs Family Practice include blood tests, urine testing, tissue swabs, biopsies, and other diagnostic procedures that allow your provider to diagnose or treat common medical problems. 

Because of in-house lab services, you don’t have to travel to another location to complete your labs, which saves you time and money. Colorado Springs Family Practice also offers on-site X-rays and other imaging procedures. 

Which in-house lab services are available?

Some of the in-house lab services available to you at Colorado Springs Family Practice include:

  • Blood tests
  • Urine testing
  • Nasal swabs
  • Throat swabs
  • Tissue biopsies
  • Pap tests

Lab tests can screen for high cholesterol, hormone imbalances, strep throat, flu, COVID-19, thyroid disorders, and more.

They allow your specialist to detect urinary tract infections (UTIs), sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), certain types of cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and other chronic diseases.

Which in-house lab services are best for me?

To find out what in-house lab services may benefit you, your Colorado Springs Family Practice provider asks about your medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle habits. They check your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs and complete a physical exam.

You might need in-house lab testing, imaging procedures, or more than one type of diagnostic test, depending on your symptoms and risk factors. 

What should I expect during in-house lab testing?

During in-house lab testing, your provider might draw blood using a tiny needle or have you urinate in a cup. They could use a swab to obtain a sample of cells from the inside of your nose or throat or take a sample of cervical cells in women during a Pap test to screen for cancer. Your specialist may numb a treatment area and take a tissue sample for lab analysis.

What happens after utilizing in-house lab services?

Depending on the type of lab tests you undergo, you might get your test results right away, later the same day, the next day, or several days after your appointment. 

Your Colorado Springs Family Practice provider reviews the results with you and lets you know the next best steps. You might need to make healthy lifestyle changes, take over-the-counter or prescription medications, undergo minor procedures or further diagnostic testing, or see a specialist. They work with you to develop the most appropriate treatment plan.
