Laboratory Blood Work

What is Blood Testing?

A laboratory procedure or blood test is where blood is extracted from the patient’s major vein. Blood work results or blood analysis can determine a person’s physiological and biochemical condition, check organ functions, and aid in the process of treatment. It will help the doctor take a closer look and find the best possible treatment and care for you! Blood testing or a blood test is routinely performed as part of an annual physical or when your physician suspects an illness or an infection that a blood test can help diagnose.

Our Beverly Hills medical office provides full blood test, blood count test, tsh blood test, blood test for rheumatoid arthritis, blood test for lupus, blood test for cholesterol, blood test for liver, kidney, white blood cells, platelets, urine, blood sugars, iron, cancer, vitamin deficiencies and more.
 
What to expect before a blood test?

A physician or nurse will use a butterfly needle (a small needle) to extract blood from one of your veins. You may feel a slight pinch while this procedure is being performed. Blood draws can be done in the comfort of our Beverly Hills office or the comfort of your home, hotel, or office. There is zero down time needed after blood work has been done.

How to prepare for blood testing?

We ask our patients to fast for a full 12 hours before a blood sample is taken. Please drink lots of water, making sure your veins are full. That will aid the phlebotomist in finding the correct veins. Please refrain from drinking any coffee or tea. Vitamins and your medications are ok to take.
