Test Result Explanation (PDF)

1) What are the laboratory hours?
The lab is open for outpatient testing 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM Monday thru Friday, special arrangements can be made for weekends and after hour draws.

2) Do I need to schedule an appointment for my lab test?
No, lab tests are done on a first come, first serve basis. It is hard to schedule tests because we never know what will walk thru the door.
Lab waiting times are very short regardless.

3) How long until my physician receives my test results?
Most tests are performed in-house and should be completed and faxed to your physician within four hours, however, some tests will be sent
out to a reference lab and could take up to a week for results. If you have concerns about turnaround times ask the lab tech for details.

4) Can I call the lab to get my test results?
You should get your test results from your physician unless special arrangements have been made.
The lab tech cannot give medical advice to patients.

5) Do I need to be fasting?
If you are being tested for a lipid panel or fasting glucose you should always be fasting for 10 to 12 hours.
It is okay to drink water and take medications during this time.
