We have the ability to run many tests in-house with results in just a few hours. A few of the most common examples are: Lipid, thyroid, liver, and electrolyte panels as well as complete blood counts (CBC), A1C’s, urine microalbumins, and complete urinalysis. We also can check for strep, mono, and Influenza in a matter of minutes. We can also screen for sexually transmitted diseases through blood, urine and other body fluids.
While we are able to draw for nearly any test in our in-house lab, we occasionally have to send the blood to an outside lab to be resulted. We have the ability to send specimens to Allen Memorial Hospital, Covenant Medical Center, LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics Laboratories per the patient's preference. Results typically come back on these tests within 1-2 days and are placed in your chart for your Physician to review.
Our laboratory personnel at Family Practice have over 50 years of combined experience in drawing blood and resulting your labs. We have the latest technology, machines, tests, Quality Assurance Program, and perform Quality Controls and Proficiency Testing just like any other hospital or large Laboratory would. Family Practice Center Laboratory has been awarded the Laboratory Excellence Award many times since the early 90’s and again recently for 2017-2018. This is awarded to laboratories who have proven their outstanding performance in quality patient testing and overall exemplary application of the principles of laboratory practices.
Our in-house X-Ray department at Northeast Iowa Family Practice Center (NEIFPC) uses digital radiography to perform head-to-toe imaging. Your images are reviewed by your physician the same day as your exam, as well as read by our radiologist, with an official report completed within 1-2 days.
We are able to access any previous radiology exams from local hospitals so that they can be compared to exams completed at NEIFPC to monitor for changes and improvements.
The NEIFPC Radiology department also offers EKG’s, with immediate results that are reviewed by your physician before you leave the office, as well as Pulmonary Function Testing with same day results. OB Ultrasounds are also offered at our office, and scheduled during your OB appointments.
