Clinic-Lab Partnership
Laboratory tests are critical in diagnosing and making medical decision. We offer on-site specimen collection and point-of-care testing to improve our care. Some tests can be offered almost instantly, using a point-of-care device in the presence of the patient and without the need to send the sample to the lab. These include urinalysis, pregnancy, and influenza A and B, and Strep A., among others.
Test Samples

We send samples to the lab to be evaluated by specialists. The turnaround is pretty fast, and usually takes between 48 and 72 hours for the results to be available for review. Working with a dedicated lab ensures accuracy and reliability of the results and helps monitor risk factors for serious illness. We can detect the presence of illicit drugs or toxic agents to monitor recovery or disease progression.
Our lab partner can perform tests that evaluate urine and blood under a microscope, and measures hormone levels, vitamin levels, chemistry analytes, complete blood counts, coagulation, allergens, among other tests.
Toxicology Screening
Detection of prescription medications and illicit drugs, which allows our team to make the best possible decisions regarding your care.
Blood Testing
Blood testing including complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, lipid panel, liver panel, and screening for sexually transmitted infections.
Pharmacogenetic Testing
Screens for infectious diseases and detection of genetic variations in medication-metabolizing enzymes.
Benefits Of Testing
When we test our patients for alcohol or drug use, or when we do it as part of their medical treatment, it helps us reduce the risk for toxicity from adverse drug effects or interaction between medications. We want to assess compliance and reduce the risk of therapeutic failure. and avoiding or detecting drug-drug interaction.
Urinalysis Testing
A toxicology screen is a test that determines the approximate amount and type of legal or illegal drugs that you've taken. It may be used to screen for drug abuse, to monitor a substance abuse problem, or to evaluate drug intoxication or overdose. Toxicology screening can be done fairly quickly.
If your provide decides to collect during your treatment, the sample may be sent to the lab for testing and the results will be used as information for your assessment with the purpose of (1) better determining your treatment plan, (2) monitoring your progress and adherence to treatment, (3) identifying needs for further assessment and substance abuse treatment, and (4) better coordinating your care. Collection usually occurs during your initial visit and serves as baseline data. Your therapist will determine how often samples are collected.

The process is a simple cheek swab that will be placed in a paper envelope. This drying process ensures the samples remain stable by preventing microbial growth and breakdown of DNA.

The most important step you can take is to talk to your doctor. If you think genetic testing could be helpful for you or someone you care for,

PGx accounts for drug-gene interactions to improve drug safety, predict responders vs non-responders, and identify those at risk of developing serious or life-threatening adverse drug events with certain medications.

Prescription drug use to treat mental health conditions is increasing during COVID-19.1 As of mid-July 2020, 53% of adults in the U.S. reported that their mental health has been negatively impacted.2 Mental health spending rose to $225 billion in 2019—an increase of 52% in the past decade3—a number likely to increase. Approximately 60 FDA-approved medications used to treat mental health concerns are impacted by genetics.

Your sample is handled with care. Generally, samples are destroyed within 60 days of receipt, however, the samples may be destroyed at any time after the testing is completed upon request.
