Thanks to lab tests, like blood work, urinalysis, and nasal swabs, it’s possible to diagnose conditions that aren’t visible to the eye. At Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic, board-certified family nurse practitioner Elaina Johnson, FNP-C, and the team offer lab work to people of all ages. The team provides onsite lab draws and works with Labcorp facilities in the area.

Lab work is a group of tests that analyze the chemical components –– things like hormones, nutrients, or triglycerides –– in your bodily fluids and tissues. They provide a quick and convenient way to assess your general health and pinpoint underlying medical conditions that don’t always present obvious symptoms.
At Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic, the team partners with Laborp to offer various types of lab work, including:
Urinalysis analyzes a sample of your urine for the presence of various cells and chemicals. High levels of protein in your urine may indicate a heart condition or kidney disease. Your provider might also recommend urinalysis for STD testing.
If you regularly experience gastrointestinal problems, like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, the team might ask for a stool sample. A lab analyzes the sample for the presence of bacteria, viruses, or germs that might make you sick.
A throat or nasal swab is a type of lab test that diagnoses conditions like strep throat, the flu, or COVID-19. After the team determines the source of your symptoms, they can make recommendations for treatment to help you feel better.
We offer a wellness pannel which includes: Complete Blood Count (CBC), Lipid panel, Complete Metabolic Panel, and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone
The length of time it takes to receive the results of your lab work depends on the type of test you receive. Often, the results of the urinalysis, throat and nasal swabs are provided within a few minutes, but the results of blood tests and stool samples can take 1-3 business days.
The type of lab work that you need depends on various factors, including your age, sex, and medical history. Following a physical exam and discussing your symptoms, the team can make recommendations that align with your needs.
