Lab Q & A

DOCCS

What lab services are available?

Here at DOCCS, we offer on-site lab tests for your convenience. If you need any lab work either prior to or as a follow-up to your appointment, you won’t need to make a separate appointment to have your blood work or urinalysis completed. Over the years, Dr. Moss and Dr. Sahay have found that patients are more likely to follow through with necessary lab work when it is as convenient as possible for you to have the screenings. It not only makes it easier for you, but it’s also good medical practice to support patients to complete follow up appointments and lab work.

You can have tests including:

  • PT & INR
  • Urinalysis
  • Drug screenings
  • STD testing
  • Pregnancy tests
  • Standard blood panels

What is PT & INR?

PT & INR tests measure your blood’s ability to clot effectively. It is a common test for patients who take blood thinners, like coumadin and heparin, to make sure the medications are working properly. Since many patients may need this test once a week, DOCCS makes sure that those tests are as convenient as possible for you.

What does a urinalysis test for?

Urinalysis tests are used to both check your overall health and to detect a variety of medical issues including, kidney function, pregnancy, diabetes, or liver disease. Your doctor may ask you for regular urinalyses to monitor a health condition, so at DOCCS we do our best to make it as easy as possible for you to stay up-to-date with your screenings by offering in-house lab services.

Do you offer drug testing services?

If you need pre-employment drug screening, you can make an appointment at DOCCS for a urinalysis. A standard urinalysis doesn’t screen for drug use, so you’ll need to ask for drug screening specifically. Our physicians and staff can also complete any paperwork that accompanies your drug test if you need evidence of compliance.

What should I do if I think I am pregnant?

If you think you’re pregnant, you should make an appointment with one of our physicians for a checkup and pregnancy test. A pregnancy test is another specific form of urinalysis that tests for human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), a specific kind of protein produced during pregnancy. If you are pregnant, you’ll begin to have prenatal checkups to monitor your health and the health of your baby.

We know convenience is really important to you when it comes to your healthcare. We know you don’t have time to waste going to appointment after appointment, so we offer comprehensive healthcare--under one roof.
