Why Choose Prime Urgent Care for Blood Work?
Benefits of Blood Testing
Blood testing offers insights into a person’s overall health, identifies any markers or areas of concern, and can help inform accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans.
Common blood tests we offer:
Complete Blood Count Tests (CBC)
This test provides information about the number and types of blood cells in your body, and can help detect conditions such as anemia, infections, and certain blood disorders.
Comprehensive Metabolic Panels (CMP)
This panel measures various aspects of your blood to help assess overall organ function and detect conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, and liver problems.
Measures cholesterol levels, including total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol (known as “bad” cholesterol), HDL cholesterol (known as “good” cholesterol), and triglycerides, to help assess heart health and identify any risks for heart disease.
Thyroid Function Tests
Measures thyroid hormone levels to evaluate the health of the thyroid gland and diagnose conditions like hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.
Blood Glucose Tests
Measures blood sugar levels and is commonly used to screen for (or monitor) diabetes.
Steps in the Blood Testing Process
STEP 1 - Consultation:
Your visit starts with a consultation with your licensed medical provider who will assess your symptoms, medical history, and reason for the blood test to help them determine the appropriate test(s) to order.
STEP 2 - Blood sample collection:
A healthcare professional will then collect a blood sample from your body based on the specific test(s) ordered.
STEP 3 - Laboratory analysis:
The collected blood sample sent to an outside laboratory for results. Blood work results at Prime Urgent Care are usually back the next business day.
STEP 4 - Result interpretation:

This can involve determining a diagnosis, developing a treatment plan, discussing any medical implications, or necessary follow-up actions.
