As part of our on-going commitment to total patient care, we are pleased to announce the
addition of our on-site allergy testing. This simple blood test uses the technologically advanced
Immulite 2000 by Siemens, an accurate, fast-response allergy test for two distinct
types of allergens: one for common southwest inhalants (airborne particles such as those from
trees, grasses, weeds, pet dander and indoor pollutants), and the other test for food and mold
allergies. For infomation about our testing and our program vist out Allergy page.
Ankle Brachial Index (ABI):
The ABI is a simple, reliable test for diagnosing peripheral arterial disease. Blood pressure measurements are taken at the arms and ankles using a specialized computer and an ultrasound device called a Doppler that produces sound waves.
The Bio-Z is a non-invasive test based on thoracic impedance. The digital readouts produced by this monitor allow providers to determine whether or not a patient’s blood flow is normal and whether blood vessels coming out of the heart are restricted or normal, how forceful the heart is contracting, and the level of circulating fluid. All of these factors influence blood pressure and this data is used by providers to adjust the patient’s medication accordingly.
We are also pleased to offer our patients the convenience of a complete on-site laboratory. Warner Family Practice has invested in equipment to handle the majority of your labs on site. Orders from Warner Family Practice Providers or any Specialist can be implemented on-site. Specialists orders can be filled in a timely manner and the results sent directly to them; just bring the order from them with you to our facility.

A sleep study can help detect sleep apnea a serious and life threatening condition, occurring when the airway temporarily collapses during sleep, causing breathing to repeatedly stop and start during sleep. Most patients who suffer from OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) will experience low levels of oxygen in the blood, high blood pressure and a quality of life decrease due to headaches and drowsiness. Some signs of OSA include loud snoring, dry mouth, morning headaches, and shortness of breath.
This test provides intraocular pressure readings to check for glaucoma.
This is the largest and most strucurally complicated vitamin and provides valuable information in treating anemia. It is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. B12 is one of the eight B vitamins. It is involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, and important for energy production.
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that can build up in the bloodstream so it is important to take the correct levels of Vitamin D as recommended by your provider. Vitamin D is referred to as the “Sunshine Vitamin” because it is generally felt to be converted by the skin into Vitamin D in the human body. However, recently widespread information about a variety of different diseases exists including bone health, cancer and cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and chronic fatigue. Some depression has also been linked to low levels of Vitamin D.
