Test for a Range of Diseases with Our In-Office Laboratory Services in Charlotte, NC
At Metrolina Internal Medicine, we offer patients throughout Charlotte, NC and the surrounding areas comprehensive in-office laboratory services that test for a wide variety of diseases.
Our laboratory tests check a sample of your blood, urine, or body tissues and our medical specialists will analyze the test results to see if they fall within the normal range. Sex, age, race, diet, prescriptions, and how well you followed pre-testing instructions help us determine the range. These factors may have an impact on the test results. Our primary care doctors may also compare your laboratory test results to results from previous tests.
Our in-office laboratory tests are often a part of a routine checkup to look for changes in your health. These tests are also used to help doctors diagnose potential medical conditions, plan or evaluate treatments, and monitor diseases. With our in-office medical screening tests, we hope to identify diseases while they’re in their preclinical stage to improve the chance of curability.

Put simply, it’s a laboratory service designed to give doctors a very complete picture of your health.
An EKG, or electrocardiogram, is a laboratory service designed to measure the function of the heart by measuring its electrical signals. Doctors interpret the test results to determine if you have issues with blocked arteries or an irregular heartbeat. An EKG can also help determine if you’ve had a heart attack in the past or if current interventions, like a pacemaker, are functioning properly.
A renal doppler measures how well blood is flowing into and out of your kidneys. The test is meant to see if the arteries around your kidneys are narrowing or hardening. This laboratory service is essential in helping to diagnose and/or determine a course of treatment for renal failure, high blood pressure, and other conditions.
An arterial doppler is an ultrasound test used to determine if there are blockages in your arteries. This laboratory service can help doctors determine if you are suffering from blood clots, plaque buildup in the arteries, trouble with blood circulation, and more.
