What to Expect from an in-house reference lab
Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology is a patient-centered practice that wants you to feel comfortable about all procedures related to your health. Our highly trained lab professionals will tend to your test as quickly as possible. The majority of our lab services are minimally invasive and will require a blood or urine sample. All of our lab services are performed on-site efficiently and quickly as possible. Once we have your results, Dr. Terzian or a member of our team will call you to review our findings and discuss if any follow-up tests are necessary. From there, Dr. Terzian will go over the best treatment options.
There are multiple types of lab tests, but the most common assessments include:
Complete blood count (CBC): This analysis measures the red and white blood cells and platelets of the blood. It is often used to evaluate a patient's overall health and nutritional status and screen for medical disorders.
Urinalysis: This is a very simple and most frequently performed diagnostic test. A small sample of urine is collected from the patient to complete a general health screening.
Basic metabolic panel: This is a blood test that measures blood sugar levels, electrolyte and fluid volume, and kidney function. It can also assess how certain medications are affecting the kidneys and electrolytes.
Cholesterol screening or lipid panel: This lab measures the amount of cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood. It can evaluate a patient's risk of heart disease and stroke.
Rapid strep: These quick turnaround tests show an active strep throat infection.
Rapid influenza: We can provide an almost instant test for influenza.
Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised with my visit. I don't know what I expected but the Doctor was very thorough and asked many questions, which I loved. He did seem concerned and wanted to cover all my concerns. The front desk staff was ok. Overall I had a great experience.
Dr. John has been my doctor for four plus years and he always provides the best care for whatever is it that I need. The visits are extremely accommodating and the in person appointments are always efficient and quick. Very clean and spacious office as well. The staff are always welcoming. Thank you so much for all that you do for me!!
Great provider. Listens to all concerns and orders necessary tests. Always punctual. And has a great bedside manner. Have been their patient for the past five years. Highly recommend.
He explained to my husband and myself what we were facing. Also, his personality and bedside manner was superb. Not worried about this procedure at this time. Just waiting to have it scheduled. Office staff up front were caring and polite. Just be glad when all is done and over.
Dr John has been my Cardiologist for many years. He never acts hurried to move me along. The care I have gotten is exceptional!
