Testing and X-Rays Q&A
What are the benefits of in-office testing and X-rays?
At Sunset Urgent Care, Dr. Kwaw understands how uncomfortable and impersonal lab testing and X-rays can feel. Visiting your doctor, driving to an outside facility, then waiting at home for your results involves plenty of unnecessary traveling and waiting. That’s why Dr. Kwaw offers in-office lab testing and X-rays.
Whether you need an STD test or a chest X-ray, Sunset Urgent Care is the right clinic for you. The practice provides fast, accurate, and private test results in an environment where you feel safe and comfortable.
Which in-office testing and X-rays are available?
Some of the most common types of in-office testing and X-rays available at Sunset Urgent Care include:
STD testing may involve a blood test, urinalysis, or cheek swab to check for the presence of sexually transmitted diseases.
The office is equipped to test for STDs like herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, syphilis, human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis B, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Dr. Kwaw ensures that your STD testing and any treatment you require are discreet and private.
General blood test
General blood work is a simple test that checks for signs of disease and infection. A complete blood count (CBC), basic metabolic panel, thyroid panel, and nutrient test are just a few tests included in this routine screening.
Thyroid function test
Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the center of your neck. It regulates the hormones that control many of your basic functions, such as metabolism and temperature. Changes in your thyroid function can cause many unpleasant symptoms, including weight gain, night sweats, and fatigue. A thyroid function test ensures your thyroid is working as it should.
Cholesterol is a waxy, fatty substance in your blood. Too much of it can clog your arteries, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. A cholesterol test checks the amount of cholesterol in your blood to help maintain your overall health.
An X-ray is a painless imaging test that allows Dr. Kwaw to view your body’s internal structures. With an X-ray, he can tell whether you have a broken bone, fracture, or chest infection without making any incisions in your skin.
