In House Labs Q & A

Brookridge Internal Medicine

Can I complete all of my laboratory tests at the Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates office?

Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates provides in-house laboratory services along with high-quality, comprehensive patient care. Your practitioner may order a lab test to either confirm a diagnosis or determine an abnormality that may be causing you discomfort. Instead of going to another facility, you’re able to simply complete the test in-house, streamlining test results and providing convenience of service.

The majority of laboratory testing can be completed in the office, and results are often available within a few days. If your requested service can’t be completed in-house, your doctor gives you a referral to an outside provider to perform the test. Once you complete the test with the outside provider, the results will be sent back to the office for analysis.

Who can I contact about my lab results?

Since laboratory testing is performed in-house, you can call Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates directly to see if your results are ready. Often, test results may be ready within a few days. Our policy is that if the test results are normal you will probably not receive a phone call from the office.  You can also request a copy thru our patient portal. If you have any concerns about adverse reactions after completing the test, call the office or schedule an appointment with your practitioner as soon as possible.

Who analyzes the lab results?

The team at Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates works closely together to produce accurate results from your lab test in a time-efficient and thorough manner. Your primary care practitioner will view the results from the test and form a diagnosis of your condition.
