It's really nice to have an urgent care clinic in your area, especially since you can go there for immediate lab testing. This is really convenient when you need a test done to check something like your cholesterol or to check for a condition like an STD. At AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa, we provide this kind of immediate care with walk-in lab testing in San Diego, CA. You can come see us at our clinic for same-day testing and same-day results, no appointment necessary.
What lab tests are common?
With common lab tests, all that's usually needed is a simple urine or blood sample, or sometimes a throat swab. This depends on the type of test. It's possible to test for infections like chlamydia, certain kidney, cardiovascular, or liver conditions, and more. Some of the more common lab tests include:
- CBC tests - Complete blood count tests that can check for signs of infection, anemia, leukemia, or other conditions
- Cultures - Tests for conditions like the flu or strep throat
- Chemistry - Tests that can check for signs of dehydration, liver function issues, or electrolyte problems
- Urinalysis - Urine tests that can check for pregnancy, certain infections, or drug use
Since lab tests can check for drug use and we have an onsite lab here at AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa, we can provide employer drug/alcohol testing. If you're an employee, you can come see us for an immediate, on-the-spot test your employer needs, or if you're an employer, you can contact us about getting your employees tested.
Can urgent care provide blood tests?
Absolutely. Blood tests can be done at an urgent care clinic like ours. In fact, it's especially convenient to have a blood test done at urgent care. This is because an appointment is not necessary with urgent care. Also, since urgent care clinics have an in-house laboratory, they can perform a blood test and produce results right away!
Why should I go to urgent care for my lab work?
There are lots of reasons to go to urgent care for lab work. As we mentioned before, an appointment isn't necessary, so you can go in for a test just about whenever you may need one. Wait times are minimal too. Also, here at AFC Urgent Care Mira Mesa, we can have a test done for you in as little as 10 minutes! This usually isn't possible at a provider's clinic or at the ER (emergency room). Also, with these other options, you'll have to wait for your test results too. Sometimes it may be really important to have a blood test done right away, like when it's recommended by a provider or required for work. Urgent care can take care of it quick and easy.
At our clinic, we don't want you to have to go out to a private lab to get your test done, and we don't want you to have to wait for your test results. With us, you can get your test done right away, right on the spot, and get your results same-day, often within minutes.
