Lab testing is a catch-all term to describe the variety of clinical, biometric, and diagnostic exams to diagnose illnesses or specific medical conditions. Patients usually refer to lab testing as “blood work” since a large number of diagnostic exams require a blood test to evaluate a patient’s condition. However, lab tests sometimes only need a sample of saliva, urine, or a similar bio-product.

Lab tests are a great way to test for multiple types of infectious diseases, chronic diseases, long-term health conditions, and short term infections. Additionally, a lab test can be used by your primary care provider or another medical professional to administer and coordinate future treatment options.

Most patients think that they require a specialty lab from a hospital in order to get these tests, but our walk-in clinic and urgent care center can provide these as well. The types of lab testing offered at Chesapeake ERgent Care include:

  • Hematology tests including full blood counts
  • Chemistry tests such as metabolic panels
  • Urinalysis
  • Rapid flu and strep throat testing
  • Drug Screenings
