FAQs

How long does it take to receive my test results?

Depending on the test ordered, results may be ready in as little as 3 hours. Average turnaround time on routine tests is 12 hours or less depending on the time the courier pick-ups up the specimen at your physician’s office. Certain esoteric tests may take several days to weeks to get results returned. You should check with your doctor to receive your results.

No. Laboratory tests must be ordered by a physician. If you would like a certain test performed, please discuss it with your doctor who will decide if the test is appropriate for you.

Do I need to make an appointment to have my blood drawn?

Do I need to fast before having my blood drawn?
