What are Routine Blood Tests?

Routine blood tests are a type of diagnostic test that involves taking a sample of blood from a vein in your arm and analyzing it in a laboratory.

Routine blood tests are typically performed as part of an annual physical or to monitor existing health conditions.

Why are Routine Blood Tests Important?

Routine blood tests play a crucial role in maintaining good health and catching potential health issues early on. By measuring various aspects of your health, routine blood tests can help your doctor determine if there are any underlying health problems that need to be addressed.
