Lab Services Q & A

What are lab services?

Lab tests provide information about your health. Lake Family Medicine & Imaging includes an onsite lab that completes medical testing, allowing Dr. Kandavanam to diagnose and treat health issues quickly. 

Lab services include standard blood tests, X-rays, diagnostic imaging, STD screenings, Pap smears, and tests for illnesses like strep throat and COVID-19. 


What are the benefits of in-office lab services?

Lake Family Medicine & Imaging wants to make health care as convenient and as easy as possible for you. They offer in-office lab services to save you time and money. 

You don’t need to make additional appointments at outside labs for standard tests. If Dr. Kandavanam needs additional information about your health to diagnose an illness, you can have the test then and there. 

For example, if you need a standard blood panel as part of your annual physical, you can have your blood drawn at the same time as your appointment. Alternatively, if you need an X-ray to assess an orthopedic injury, you can receive one as part of your evaluation.

The in-office lab ensures that Dr. Kandavanam gets your test results quickly, leading to more rapid treatment for you. You don’t need to wait for an outside lab to send your test results back to Lake Family Medicine & Imaging. 


What are the available lab services?

Lake Family Medicine & Imaging offers a comprehensive range of lab services, including:

Blood panels

Blood panels provide valuable information about your health and body function. For example, a basic metabolic panel tests:

  • Creatine 
  • Blood urea nitrogen
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Calcium
  • Electrolytes 

Dr. Kandavanam might also order a comprehensive blood panel that includes additional tests to evaluate the protein level in your blood and liver health indicators. He often combines these tests with lipid panels to check your cholesterol and triglycerides.

You might also need blood tests to evaluate your blood count or screen for hormonal imbalances or thyroid function.  

Drug screenings

If your pre-employment, flight, or sports physical requires a drug test, you can provide a urine sample at Lake Family Medicine & Imaging before you go home. 

STD tests

Dr. Kandavanam can provide STD screenings, including blood tests, genital swabs, and urinalysis. Your results are prompt, which allows for rapid treatment if necessary.

Diagnostic tests

If you or your child are sick, Dr. Kandavanam can provide a rapid test for illnesses like strep throat, mononucleosis, or the flu. 

X-rays

If you sustained a physical injury, Dr. Kandavanam and the team offer X-ray services in-house. An X-ray is a quick and simple diagnostic imaging test that allows your provider to assess the extent of orthopedic trauma. By choosing an all-in-one practice, you don’t have to travel to another office for an X-ray, and you will receive your results quickly.
