New York, NY (PressExposure) April 03, 2013 -- In the world of preventive care, blood tests are commonly used to detect a number of diseases and conditions, and work to assess a patient's overall health. Typically performed at a third-party laboratory, Manhattan's St. Claire Medical is now announcing the addition of on-site blood testing. Dr. Elbert St. Claire took a moment to explain the benefits of this approach.
"One of our most important practice goals is creating an environment of ease and convenience for those we treat," explains Dr. St. Claire. "Introducing on-site blood tests helps us move closer toward that goal." Practicing on Manhattan's West 58th Street, St. Claire Medical offers comprehensive medical and preventive care for a wide range of conditions affecting adults.
Dr. St. Claire went on to explain the importance of regular blood analysis. "Blood tests have become an invaluable part of how we screen for many of today's most common conditions and diseases," explains Dr. St. Claire. "Now, patients can be screened for high cholesterol, diabetes, HIV, and much more from the comfort and convenience of our office."
Emphasizing the importance of "people-centric" care, Dr. St. Claire went on to describe his practice's unique approach. "Since we opened our doors back in December, we have sought to deliver the utmost in compassionate, personalized care," explains Dr. St. Claire. "You'll never hear us refer to our people as "patients" or by a number. Instead, we see each person as a unique individual, with distinct medical needs and goals."
Asked to explain how on-site blood testing will benefit his patients, Dr. St. Claire added this: "One of the most important benefits of on-site testing is a greatly reduced waiting period," Dr. St. Claire explains. "In a laboratory setting, blood work may not arrive for days, or even weeks. With on-site testing, on the other hand, we are able to provide results sooner, easing an individual's concerns and allowing us to begin treatment - if necessary - as quickly as possible."
Explaining how individuals can find out more information about St. Claire Medical, Dr. St. Claire finished with this.
