Which lab tests might I need?

Laboratory tests are typically necessary to diagnose the cause of your symptoms or the source of unexplained pain.

The Brighton Beach Medical Group doctors also use lab tests as a preventive screening tool when you have a personal or family history of certain diseases like diabetes or a hormone imbalance. Screenings allow your provider the opportunity to identify potential health problems in their earliest stages.

If you need lab tests, your Brighton Beach Medical Group provider can order them during your initial consultation based on your specific needs.

To diagnose problems of the digestive system, you might need an upper endoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small camera attached to a flexible tube to explore your upper digestive tract, including your esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (the first part of your small intestine).

For cardiology-related conditions, your Brighton Beach Medical Group doctor will often recommend on-site stress testing or echocardiography, noninvasive tests that collect information about how your heart is working.

A colonoscopy is a procedure to screen for changes in the cells of your colon (large intestine) that could indicate colon cancer. The Brighton Beach Medical Group staff could also suggest a colonoscopy to diagnose unexplained digestive dysfunction.

Will I need blood work?

During a diagnostic appointment, your Brighton Beach Medical Group provider could recommend urine or blood testing. Blood work and urine tests are useful to:

  • Identify infection
  • Check hormone levels
  • Identify heart disease
  • Measure cholesterol levels
  • Assess the function of your organs

Your Brighton Beach Medical Group doctor could also order routine blood work to monitor the effectiveness and safety of your medications.

With an on-site lab, the Brighton Beach Medical Group is able to provide you with accurate results, often on the same day. This ensures your treatment can begin as soon as possible to prevent your risk for additional health complications.
