We are the sole pediatric clinic within the entirety of the greater Salinas, California area to provide comprehensive Blood Count (Cell-Dyne) service right here in-house. This testing is necessary to gauge a patient’s general health status and also to screen, diagnose and subsequently monitor for all sorts of different conditions and diseases that impact blood cells. Examples of such conditions and diseases include a bleeding disorder, inflammation, anemia, cancer and infection.
This testing should be conducted as a routine component of your medical exam. Furthermore, if the medical professionals at Salinas Pediatric Medical Group determine you have symptoms or signs that might indicate a condition that affects the blood cells, the testing is necessary. In fact, such testing is conducted at specific intervals to gauge the status of specific diseases and monitor the impact of treatment if the treatment has the potential to affect blood cells.
There is no need to prepare for the test on your own as the entirety of the work is done here at Salinas Pediatric Medical Group. Once conducted, the test will determine whether the cells within the blood, including the white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets are healthy and normal. This test can also be used to evaluate a patient’s overarching health and detect conditions and viruses.
