How can I find out if lab tests are performed at a doctor’s office?
Some physician offices do have the capacity to do lab tests. Large medical groups, especially, may have a fully equipped and staffed clinical lab. Most physicians, however, will send their clinical lab work to outside labs that are typically better equipped, better staffed, fully accredited and independent of the physician’s control. There has always been some question about the quality of physician “in-office” labs.
What is a general practitioner?
The term “General Practitioner” is a colloquial one and refers to a physician in general practice, which generally means Primary Care. They may be either internists or Family Practitioners.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
