On-site lab capabilities help our providers diagnose skin cancer, skin allergies, bacterial or fungal skin infections and other diseases.
Your visit with us may begin with a comprehensive medical history and physical exam of your skin. Depending on your problem, your provider may then authorize laboratory studies. Our facility is equipped with a full-service lab in which to perform any necessary tests. The diagnostic tests our providers typically use include:
- Patch tests to help diagnose allergies
- Skin biopsy to diagnose skin cancer or other skin disorders
- Cultures to help detect organisms that may be causing an infection
When will I receive the results from my lab test?
Our office is equipped to perform any necessary lab work authorized by your provider. You should receive notification of lab or pathology results by telephone within two weeks of your test. If your results require immediate notification, we will contact you right away. If you have not received your results within two weeks, you may call our office.
