Lab Services Q & A

What are lab services?

Lab services involve collecting a small amount of fluid or tissue from your body for laboratory testing. Arizona Institute of Medicine & Surgery provides convenient, on-site lab services, such as:

Blood tests

The phlebotomy lab at Arizona Institute of Medicine & Surgery offers a wide range of blood tests, including:

  • Complete blood count
  • Basic metabolic panel
  • Blood enzyme tests
  • Blood tests to assess heart disease risk
  • Blood clotting tests
  • Hormone testing
  • Hemoglobin A1C test for diabetes

These tests reveal information about your general health and screen for health problems like diabetes, poor cholesterol, and anemia. 

Urine tests

Urinalysis is one of the most commonly performed lab tests. This general screening test can check for early signs of disease. You may also need routine urine tests to monitor conditions like diabetes or kidney disease. 

Bacterial cultures

Bacterial cultures help to diagnose infections, such as strep throat and pneumonia. Your provider uses the test results to determine the best course of treatment. 

Why would I need lab services?

The team at Arizona Institute of Medicine & Surgery uses lab services for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Assess overall health 
  • Confirm or rule out the presence of disease
  • Monitor long-term medical conditions like diabetes
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of a medical treatment

If your lab test results indicate a condition that requires advanced care beyond the scope of general medicine, your provider may refer you to a medical specialist.  

What should I expect when I get lab services?

What happens during lab services depends on the type of test you need. A blood test typically requires drawing one or more vials of blood from your arm while urine tests involve collecting urine in a cup for testing. Bacterial cultures need a small sample from the infection site. 

Where should I go for lab services?

You don’t need to go to the hospital for lab services. Arizona Institute of Medicine & Surgery offers the same services at a much more affordable price. In addition to the cost savings, you get the benefit of highly individualized care and attention in a spacious, welcoming facility.
