In-Office Rapid Services Q & A

by Pouya Shafipour, MD

What is rapid in-office testing?

Rapid in-office testing uses advanced techniques to help you get a better understanding of specific health factors and measurements that could increase your risk for diseases like heart disease, heart attack, stroke, diabetes and even cancer. Unlike traditional testing that requires a trip to a lab or hospital, in-office rapid testing can be done quickly, right on the spot, so you get the important information you need without a prolonged waiting period or the hassles of scheduling an appointment at a busy lab 

How can rapid testing help me enjoy the best health possible?

Rapid testing is designed specifically to provide critical data that can help you and your healthcare provider manage your health better and decrease your risks of several chronic and life-threatening conditions. It's one more way to optimize your health and increase your knowledge of your own personal health profile.

What rapid testing services does Wellesley offer?

We offer several lab tests, including these five critical tests that can help diagnose and even prevent life-threatening diseases and conditions:

  • Blood pressure

  • Waist and hip measurement

  • Cholesterol screening

  • Body fat analysis

  • Blood sugar testing

These tests can help you monitor for warning signs that could indicate an elevated risk of stroke, heart attack, cancer, diabetes and other serious medical conditions. Blood sampling is done in our office using a virtually painless “finger stick' technique to provide quick results.

In addition, we offer the hemoglobin A1C test, which offers a look at your blood sugar levels for the past several months. For patients with diabetes or pre-diabetes, we recommend having an A1C test performed every three to six months to monitor health and adjust treatment recommendations as needed. We also offer metabolic testing to help patients who are trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.
