Laboratory tests & results
Some common laboratory tests are performed on site in our office. These include urinalysis, urine culture, rapid strep and mono tests, throat culture and complete blood count. Other laboratory tests and X-rays are ordered by our providers to be performed at labs and radiology facilities as required by your health insurance carrier. The provider ordering lab tests will advise you about when to expect results and how the findings will be reported to you.
Here are some guidelines related to laboratory test results:
- Parents can call after 10:00am the following day for the results of throat and urine cultures performed in the office.
- Test results are reported to the parent or adolescent only after being reviewed by the pediatrician or nurse practitioner.
- If you have questions concerning tests and results, feel free to call our office and speak with the triage nurse.
