Rapid COVID-19 testing provides results in minutes by looking for specific proteins unique to the virus that causes COVID-19.
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) COVID-19 testing is a lab test that looks for genetic material specific to the virus that causes COVID-19. PCR COVID-19 testing results may take a few days to complete, but the results are highly accurate.
Antibody COVID-19 testing checks your blood antibody levels to see if you have a history of a COVID-19 infection.
Laboratory services at Tru Medical Management also include sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing. These tests are done at the office and sent to a lab for evaluation, and the results may take a few days or a few weeks.
The primary care providers also use their laboratory services to screen for diabetes and cervical cancer and monitor long-term diseases for their chronic care patients.
Your provider at Tru Medical Management gives you specific instructions on the steps you need to take to prepare for your laboratory services. Preparation depends on the type of diagnostic test you need.
For COVID-19 testing, you may not need any special preparation. But your provider may ask that you wear a mask when coming to the office for your test.
When undergoing laboratory services for health screenings like diabetes or high cholesterol, you may need to stop eating or drinking several hours before your lab test. You may also need to alter your medication schedule.
It’s important that you follow the preparation instructions as advised, so you get the most accurate results.
