Appointments

None needed. Patients are seen on a walk-in basis. Must have orders in the computer from their healthcare provider or a script from an outside provider who is currently licensed to practice in PA. Reports are faxed to outside doctors, a current fax number must be provided.  

General Information 

  • Many tests require that the patient be in a "fasting-state" (no food or drink, other than water, for 10-12 hours beforehand); the ordering provider should inform patient if this requirement is necessary.
  • Some tests must be performed within a short period after being collected and, therefore, will not be drawn if there is not sufficient time left in the working day; two examples: PT/INR not past 4 p.m.
  • Basic tests, such as CBCs, chemistry panels, urinalysis, etc., are performed in the Lab and results are available by close of buisness; Microbiology cultures require 24 - 48 hours.
  • We ship more complex tests to Walter Reed and/or a reference lab. Results for these tests are usually back within 7 - 10 days.
  • The lab does NOT give out results to patients; you must talk to your provider for that information.
  • Wait time to have blood drawn is usually 15 minutes or less; sometimes a small child or difficult stick will cause a delay.
