We draw blood right in our office, so there is no need to go to an outside lab for tests. When blood is drawn at Latham Medical Group, results are put directly into your computerized electronic health record, and results can be accessed immediately. If, for some reason, blood work cannot be done at the same time as the office visit, you can schedule an appointment with the nurse to come in for your blood work.
If your insurance company requires you to use a specific lab, such as Labcorp or Quest, you can still have your blood drawn in our office. Our central lab will send the test to the appropriate lab, and the results will come back into our computer system.
X-Rays and Radiology Studies
A benefit of our location at the Capital Region Health Park is access to the radiology facility, ImageCare. For many urgent care problems, x-rays and CT scans may be needed. Most of these can be completed on the same day as the visit. During regular daytime hours, those images will be reviewed by a radiologist who will discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the test. Your doctor will also have access to the films and reports for evaluation through our computer system as soon as they are complete.
For non-urgent problems, we can help you schedule your tests in advance.
