Frequently Asked Questions:What does my doctor mean when they tell me to "fast" before getting my blood test done?
Some blood tests are most accurate when you have not eaten any food or had anything to drink except WATER before we draw your blood. Normally, you should not eat after you have finished your evening meal and schedule your test early the next morning. If you are taking medications that require food please ask your doctor before you skip a dose.
I had a lab test and I want my results. Who do I talk to?
You can talk to one of our Lab staff when you have your blood test drawn and let us know you want your blood test results or you may call your physcian. If the blood test has been done, you will be directed to medical records for a copy of your results, but please bring proper identification.
