Lab Tests Q & A

What are lab tests?

Lab tests are diagnostic procedures that provide detailed information about your child’s health and the function of their organs and other body systems.

Cure With Care Pediatric features an in-house medical lab to provide you with accurate diagnostic information about the cause of your child’s symptoms. You can get the answers you need about your child’s health without having to travel elsewhere, so they can get the treatment they need without delays.

Dr. Bhalani may request blood work, a mouth swab, or urine tests during an in-office visit if a physical exam doesn’t provide enough details about your child’s condition. 

He may also use lab tests to monitor your child’s health if they have diabetes, asthma, or other chronic diseases or if they have risk factors for chronic conditions.

What lab tests are available?

A range of in-house lab tests are available at Cure With Care Pediatric, so you can get the answers you need about your child’s health without the wait.

Dr. Bhalani offers comprehensive lab services, including tests for:

  • Strep throat
  • Mononucleosis
  • COVID-19
  • Blood glucose
  • Hemoglobin
  • Lipid profile
  • Lead levels

The office also offers pulmonary function testing to diagnose asthma, RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), and other respiratory conditions in children.

When does my child need lab tests?

Your child may need lab tests if they have symptoms that may relate to an acute illness or chronic disease, such as:

  • Pain
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Skin rash
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Behavioral changes

Dr. Bhalani might also request lab tests during well-child visits to assess the function of your child’s organs if they are taking medications to treat a chronic health condition. 

After your child’s lab tests are complete, Dr. Bhalani reviews them with you and helps you make informed decisions about moving forward. He provides customized treatment plans for acute and chronic health issues and monitors your child’s recovery during in-office and telemedicine visits.

Your child may need additional lab tests during follow-up visits, so Dr. Bhalani can assess their overall health and ensure treatment is working well.
