Our Hematology Department performs numerous tests on blood. The most commonly performed is the complete blood count (CBC), also known as full blood count (FBC). Blood is drawn by a Phlebotomy Technician whose skill produces minimal discomfort.
Blood chemistry tests are commonly ordered before surgery or general health exams. This test analyzes various substances found in the blood. Patients should expect the slight discomfort of a blood draw.
Cholesterol tests are especially important for those who have a family history of high cholesterol, are overweight or have diabetes. After the test, you might have some soreness or numbness near the testing site.More >>
Flu tests are ordered almost exclusively during flu season (late Fall through early Spring). Symptoms of flu are headaches, fever, chills, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, a stuffy nose, sore throat and cough.More >>
