In-house labs at Florida Concierge Medicine & Wellness include blood draws, urine testing, tissue swabs, and other diagnostic tests that require a lab analysis. Such tests, through well known partners Labcorp and Quest, allow Dr. Acloque the ability to properly diagnose medical conditions and treat them in a timely manner.
When taking advantage of in-house labs at Florida Concierge Medicine & Wellness, you don’t have to make a separate appointment to attend lab draws at another location or sit in a crowded lobby waiting for your turn to get your labs drawn. It’s a convenient service you can benefit from when you’re a member of this superior practice.
Dr. Acloque determines if you need lab work after reviewing your symptoms, medical history, and health goals. He also checks your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs and completes a physical exam. Blood lab work helps Dr. Acloque determine if you have high cholesterol, hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, high blood sugar, diabetes, arthritis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), or other common medical problems. Urine testing screens for an array of conditions, such as urinary tract infections (UTIs), kidney issues, and diabetes. You might need a biopsy to screen for skin cancer or a tissue swab to screen for strep throat, flu, COVID-19, or other illnesses.
During in-house lab tests at Florida Concierge Medicine & Wellness, your skilled provider may take a blood sample from a vein in your arm. While you may feel a tiny pinch during this lab draw, it lasts just a second or two. If you need a urinalysis, you simply leave your urine sample for lab technicians to analyze. A tissue swab often involves swabbing the back of your throat or the inside of your nose with a cotton swab. If you need a biopsy, Dr. Acloque first numbs the treatment area to maximize comfortability.
Depending on the type of in-house labs you require, you might receive the results soon after your test, later the same day, or within several days. Dr. Acloque immediately discusses the results with you and lets you know if you need medications, home remedies, or other treatments to recover from an illness or infection or better manage a chronic disease.
