Why Do I Need Lab Testing?

Lab testing includes blood draws, urinalysis and other tests that provide important information about your health. Labs enable doctors to detect, diagnose and treat certain medical conditions.


Your doctor may recommend lab testing for many reasons, including:

  • Screening: As part of routine exams, lab studies help us detect the early signs of serious health issues, like diabetes or heart disease.
  • Evaluation: Issues such as unusual tiredness, headaches or ongoing pain can have many causes. Lab studies confirm or rule out specific conditions.
  • Urgent care: If you are feeling sick, lab testing may help determine the cause. It can help diagnose issues such as the flu, infections, strep throat and COVID-19.
