Dr. Nick Koinoglou, CME, performs several different post-employment and pre-employment tests such as:
A urinalysis (also known as a urine test) is a test that examines the visual, chemical and microscopic aspects of your urine (pee). It can include a variety of tests that detect and measure various compounds such as proteins, blood, glucose and specific gravity that pass through your urine using a single sample of urine.
While several different aspects of your health can be tested with a urine sample, the employer will choose which tests to order under a urinalysis depending on your symptoms and situation.
A drug screen (also called a drug test) is the collection and analysis of blood, urine, hair, or saliva to detect the presence of the chemicals and contaminants left behind in the body due to drug use. A drug screen may also be used to detect performance-enhancing drugs sometimes used by professional athletes such as steroids and HGH.
Alcohol testing is used to detect the presence of alcohol or its metabolites in a person to determine if they are currently intoxicated or if they consumed alcohol in the past. Evidential breath alcohol testing instantly indicates the current levels in the individual's breath, and by proxy, their blood.
An audiometry evaluation is a painless, noninvasive hearing test that measures a person's ability to hear different sounds, pitches, or frequencies.
Hemoglobin A1C (HG A1C)
The hemoglobin A1c test tells you your average level of blood sugar over the past 2 to 3 months. It's also called HbA1c, glycated hemoglobin test, and glycohemoglobin.
A pre-employment physical examines many health components such as vital signs, heart, lungs, abdomen health to determine liver, bowel, and other organ functionality. The physical will also check skin appearance to determine if there are signs or symptoms of other underlying illnesses.
