Do you provide lab testing services in Ruther Glen, VA?
For lab testing services, you could go to your primary care physician or even the ER (emergency room), but you might have to wait for service and for your test results. The more convenient option is urgent care where you can get a test done without an appointment or a lengthy wait time. Here at PACS Urgent Care, we can even provide same- or next-day test results! You can come see us today for lab testing services in Ruther Glen. Walk-ins are welcome.
You can, and you really should! Urgent care is the best place to get a lab test done. Appointments are unnecessary, wait times are minimal, and results can be provided right away. Most urgent care clinics, including our own clinic, have onsite laboratories, so they won’t have to send your test to another clinic for analysis. Instead, they can just do the test and produce the results right on the spot, often in the same day!
This kind of immediate lab testing can be really convenient, especially when you need a lab test done right away for, say, a new job. Or maybe you’re worried about an infection and you want test results right away. This is another of many different scenarios when urgent care lab testing is so convenient. Sometimes it’s more than just convenient; it’s almost necessary.
Here at PACS Urgent Care, we can provide any kind of common lab test right away, right on the spot, with no appointment required. We can also produce test results right away and, only with your permission, send them to your primary care provider or any other party, like an employer. Our tests are provided by fully certified professionals who are bound by privacy and confidentiality rules. Here are some of the common lab tests we can provide:
• Urinalysis and drug screens (for pre-employment or continued employment)
• Oral fluid drug screens
• Tuberculosis tests
• Flu tests (for adults and children)
• Strep tests for strep throat
• Pregnancy tests
• STD tests
• General blood work
• And other tests
If you need one of the tests listed above or another test you don’t see on the list, just bring us your referral form (such as one from your employer) if you have one. If not, then we can still help you and provide a test. We can also see other members of your family for a test. If your child needs a test done or if an elderly family member needs one, you can bring him or her in for a test. For employees and employers, you’re free to reach out to us to learn more about our testing services.
At PACS Urgent Care, our in-house laboratory is CLIA-approved and accessible to you 7 days a week without the need for an appointment. Our clinic is open for you Monday through Sunday.
