Call the doctor's office to determine if laboratory tests or diagnostic tests are performed there. Many internists and family practice physicians have blood drawn at the office and the samples are sent out for readings.

How can I determine if a doctor’s staff will be friendly and helpful?
Not only should a doctor’s staff be friendly and helpful, but they should be professional. That entails accuracy, discretion, politeness, efficiency and other characteristics of a professionally run medical office.
What is an internal medicine doctor?
Robin Miller, MD, Integrative Medicine, answeredAn internal medicine doctor is a doctor who treats adults. Internists are trained in general medicine so that they take care of patients for overall health conditions that range from the top of the body down to the toes. That would include areas such as the brain, thyroid, heart, stomach, liver, bones and even mental health.
Once doctors are trained in internal medicine they may decide to specialize in specific areas such as Cardiology, Gastroenterology and Neurology to name a few. All these specialists have been trained as internists first.
A general internist is the kind of doctor who you might go to as a regular physician for preventive and ongoing care as you age. If you have a problem, he or she can evaluate your condition and either treat you or refer you to the appropriate specialist. An internist can maintain the overall view of what is going on with you and manage the big picture when it comes to your health.
