Lab tests are a common and essential tool for monitoring your health and catching issues as early as possible when they are easiest to treat. If you have chronic or underlying health issues, like diabetes or heart disease, regular lab work is an important part of your treatment and monitoring plan.
At Vital Clinic and Spa, we offer in-clinic lab testing at our office in Cypress, Texas, to make the process as convenient and expedited as possible by providing diagnostic testing services in one place.
Our in-house lab allows our team to perform and deliver the results of your diagnostic tests at our office while you wait.
Here are four benefits of visiting an in-house lab for your blood work and other diagnostic tests:
By performing your tests on-site at our in-house lab, the time between testing and results is much shorter than when results are sent off-site to a third-party lab for processing. Once your results are ready, you can access and view your records through our secure online patient portal.
Our team is available to answer any questions or concerns and review your test results with you over the phone, in person, or through our secure messaging app. Testing onsite allows us to provide you with more personalized, efficient, and direct care than you would receive through an off-site lab.
Off-site testing through a third-party lab requires multiple office visits and appointments. We make the process fast and efficient.

Once your lab results are in, Dr. Buttar and our team will explain your results and any further testing or treatment you may need. That gives you an opportunity to ask questions and share your concerns with a trusted and reliable family medicine provider.
We offer several lab tests to monitor your health and detect potential illnesses and infections, including:
Complete blood count (CBC): test multiple components of your blood to screen for a range of health issues.
Blood glucose test: used to diagnose pre-diabetes and diabetes and monitor blood sugar levels after a diabetes diagnosis.
Lipid panel: tests your HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and LDL (low-density lipoprotein) to ensure your cholesterol levels stay within a healthy range.
Antigen-specific allergy testing: if you have allergies, antigen testing can help to determine the source of your allergic reactions.
STD testing: if you’re sexually active, screening for sexually transmitted diseases and infections is essential for your health.
