Read on to learn more about this service and exactly how we can help you at our clinic!
Can urgent care do blood work?
Lab work like blood work can be done at an urgent care clinic like ours, as these clinics typically have an in-house laboratory. There are lots of benefits of going to urgent care for blood work, like that an appointment isn’t necessary. Also, they can usually produce results very quickly, often within just minutes! Sometimes it’s important to have blood work done right away, like when it’s recommended by your physician or required for work, so being able to get blood work done so quickly is really convenient. Urgent care can do this for you!
What are common lab tests?
Lab tests are pretty simple, as all that’s needed for a test is a simple blood or urine sample or a throat swab. The sample collection depends on the type of test you need, and urgent care offers a number of different tests. The common types of tests include:
- CBC tests – Complete blood count tests that check for signs of certain infections or conditions like anemia
- Cultures – Tests for certain illnesses like the flu
- Chemistry – Tests that check for signs of other issues like liver function abnormalities
- Urinalysis – Urine tests for drugs and more
Here at AFC Urgent Care, we can also provide employer drug/alcohol testing too, so if you’re an employee, we can provide the test you need, and if you’re an employer, we can help you get your employees tested.
What can be treated at urgent care?
A test like a urinalysis can be done to check for drugs, pregnancy, an infection, or something else, and then an urgent care clinic like ours can address the matter appropriately. If treatment is necessary, we can provide it. Here’s a bit of a list of some of the conditions we can test for and treat here at AFC Urgent Care:
- Strep throat
- A liver function abnormality
- An electrolyte abnormality (potassium, sodium, etc.)
- Some infections like urinary infections or mono
- And more

We won’t send you out to a private lab to collect your results or make you wait for them at all; we can take care of you right away.
