In collaboration with allergists in Columbia, SC, we provide allergy shots to our patients. This visit requires meeting with one of our competent clinical staff to administer the injection followed by a brief period of waiting to ensure that no abnormal reaction will occur.
Flu Vaccines are provided annually during the months of October through March. A brief lab appointment is all that needed to receive this service from one of our friendly clinical staff.
Pneumonia Vaccines are provided for patients in the office. Please discuss with your provider if it is recommended that you have this vaccine. Then a brief lab appointment is all that needed to receive this vaccine from one of our friendly clinical staff.
Shingles Vaccines may be given to patients in our office. Please discuss with your provider if it is appropriate for you to have this shot. Once you and your provider decide it is appropriate, a brief lab appointment is all that needed to receive this service from one of our friendly clinical staff.
We are able to perform certain procedures in office. A few examples include: mole removal, skin biopsy, placing and removing stitches, cast placement and removal, colposcopy, birth control insertion and removal (such as Nexplanon), vasectomies, and circumcision.
In-house Laboratory Testing
We are able to perform some lab tests in our office and give you results while you are here. However, many insurance companies now require us to send your tests to an outside lab and thus your results will usually be received the next day. You can then sign in to our web-portal the next day to view your results.
Some tests that we offer in our office are:
- Electrolyte Panel
- Cholesterol Panel
- Hemoglobin A1C (a 3 month average of a patient’s glucose levels)
- Blood Glucose Level
- Coagulation Studies
- Urine Pregnancy Test
- Strep Throat Screening
- Flu Screening
