Same Day Reporting for Routine Test Orders

Results for chemistry profiles, blood counts, and other routine testing will be provided to your physician on the same day the blood is collected.  Reports will be provided by Forward Advantage, an automated fax system, or by courier delivery to your physician's office.

 

Patient Instructions

When you come for your lab test, be sure to bring your lab order form that your physician gave you as well as your insurance card(s).  If you are having a drug screen, you will also need a photo ID.

 

Fasting

The laboratory defines fasting as no food or drink for eight (8) to twelve (12) hours before blood is drawn. Patients should still take their prescribed medication with a small amount of water, unless your physician has told you otherwise. Candy, gum, mints, and coffee are considered food.

Some common tests that require fasting include:

  • Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP) 
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
  • Glucose
  • Glucose Tolerance Test
  • Lipid Panel

  

HIV Testing

If you are having an HIV test, you will be asked to sign a consent form that verifies that your doctor has explained the test to you.  We cannot provide HIV testing without a signed consent.
