We have an in-house CLIA certified laboratory which can perform a broad range of biochemical tests. The following tests can be performed rapidly in our chemistry laboratory: Complete Blood Count (CBC), Liver Function tests, Electrolytes, Kidney Function tests,Thyroid tests, H. pylori antibodies, and protimes.
We can also obtain blood work to send to reference labs such as Prometheus Laboratories and Myriad Genetics. With the advent of sophisticated laboratory techniques for protein detection and genetic testing, we now have access to blood-based biomarkers to assist in the diagnosis of several important digestive disorders such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and celiac disease. We also use outside Labs for serological testing for liver disease and monitoring of therapeutic medications.
Our radiology department has the capability to perform plain film X-rays and colonic transit studies using Sitz markers. Finally, we have access to in-office bone densitometry to evaluate patients at risk for osteoporosis.
