Can my regular doctor do the thyroid blood tests in his clinic?

In brief: No

Thyroid tests are blood draw.
It takes time to come back. Your primary care doc might have a person drawing blood in the office but the blood have to be sent to a lab to get the result. There are some docs with their own labs but that's not the norm.

There is a machine called thyrometrix that can give you a TSH value in 15 min in your doctor office. This device is not FDA regulated and is not available in the US. I don't have personal experience with this device yet.
