Lab services including hemoglobin, cholesterol profile, hemoglobin-A1c (diabetes check), lead and urinalysis are performed on site at CHASS Center. We are also able to do EKGs, osteoporosis screening, bilirubin screening and pulmonary function studies in the office, as well as some ultrasound services. Blood tests needing extra analysis are drawn in the office and sent to the lab at Henry Ford Hospital. These results are generally available in 24-48 hours.
Coumadin and Prothrombin Time (PT, INR)
Monitoring anticoagulated clients' PT/INR is done at CHASS Center. The test is performed by a fingerstick blood draw and a physician will make a decision on whether the value is adequate or the warfarin dose needs to be changed immediately. You may come in to have your PT/INR checked at any time when the office is open. You do not need an appointment.The physician you see may or may not be your primary care provider, but all the physicians in the practice are skilled in adjusting doses of warfarin. You will be told when to return for another check in a timely fashion.
