As an Augusta Oncology patient, you don’t have to go to a separate facility for blood work; instead, we offer convenient on-site lab services.
Lab Services: The First Stop
Whenever you come to an appointment, chances are you will first stop by our laboratory. To begin, a lab technician will record your vital signs and likely take a blood sample. Our lab technicians are highly skilled professionals who are experienced in phlebotomy (drawing blood). Next, the lab tech will escort you to your examination room or the treatment room, depending on your plan of care.
Complete Blood Count
All of our locations offer complete blood counts (commonly known as CBCs) right onsite. Your CBC test measures several components of your blood, i.e. red and white blood cells, hemoglobin levels, and platelets.
These tests are important, because unusual changes in count levels could be indicative of underlying medical conditions.
After your CBC test, our care team can see your blood work results right away and make treatment decisions based on that information.
Our lab offers the most advanced tumor markers, chemistry testing, and iron tests currently available. Certified Medical Laboratory Technicians perform these daily in our lab; helps reduce the costs and time it takes to make informed decisions for your care.
We’re Here For You!
