Getting Test Results
If your physician has ordered routine lab tests, x-rays, or procedures, please give our office staff seven days to call you with the results before calling the office. This is the minimum time required to get the results back and to allow the providers time to review the results and document a treatment plan. If you have not heard from us in seven days, then you should call and leave a message for your physician inquiring about the status of your tests. If you had cultures or other special tests and procedures performed, it may take up to 10 working days before we have the results. If we are unable to reach you by telephone after three attempts, we will mail you a letter that indicates the status of your tests.
For more information on any of our services, please call us at (803) 254.1300 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. SC OBGYN does not handle medical issues by e-mail. Our professional liability insurance carrier prohibits us from answering questions about medical care and treatment by e-mail.
Our on-site laboratory allows us to provide you with quick and convenient service. We offer a wide spectrum of lab testing including cholesterol profiles and blood sugar monitoring. Tests not available on-site are sent to LabCorp, our contracted larger reference lab. In certain circumstances, some managed care plans require that all lab testing be performed at a specific reference lab. If this is the case with your insurance plan, please let us know before we perform any labs. It is your responsibility to know your plan’s lab (and other health) benefits. SC law requires that we send your PAP test to a pathology service and that only they can bill you for it. Subsequently, please direct any PAP billing question(s) to LabCorp at 1-800-845-6167.
For your convenience, we provide screening mammography services. We are the only private practice Ob-Gyn group in the state of South Carolina that has its own “in-house” mammogram capability. We have been providing in-house screening mammograms exams since 1996. Each year our facility undergoes a rigorous inspection to receive certification from the FDA, DHEC, and the American College of Radiology. The National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, and the American College of Radiology recommend that women have regular mammograms every year after age 40. Ask your physician about having your mammogram done in the comfort of our office.
SC OBGYN offers infertility counseling, fertility drug treatments, and intrauterine insemination procedures to assist couples who desire to have children. If these options are unsuccessful or in-vitro fertilization is required, then we can refer the couple to reproductive endocrinology specialists in the area.
Bone Density Testing
Over 25 million Americans -- mostly women -- are affected by osteoporosis. Half of all women over the age of 50 have an osteoporosis-related fracture. At SC OBGYN we have the technology to detect osteoporosis and vertebral fractures with the use of our DEXA equipment. A woman’s risk of a hip fracture is equal to her combined risk of developing breast, uterine, or ovarian cancer. If you are over the age of 65 you should have a bone density scan every two years.
SC OBGYN maintains a staff of registered ultrasound technologists who assist the physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of various obstetrical and gynecological problems. Our office is accredited by the American Institute for Ultrasound Medicine (AIUM) that requires quality standards and ongoing education in the area of ultrasound medicine. Ultrasound technology is useful not only for monitoring the status and progress of fetal development, but also in identifying cysts, masses, or other abnormalities.
