  • How should you prepare for a blood test?

For the majority of blood tests ordered for simple checkups, there is no preparation needed because the intent of the test is to determine the status of your blood as it is during a normal day. For other tests, a person is instructed to fast for as many as 12 hours prior to the test being administered. Each of our test options will clearly spell out any pre-test instructions.

  • What can affect blood test results?

When your blood is being tested there are variables which can affect the result of the test. When your results come in, one of our doctors will contact you to go over the results. Be sure to tell them about any medications you are taking (prescription or non-prescription) and about any alcohol consumption around the time of testing. These variables can alter levels and should be considered when interpreting the results.

  • Are blood tests always accurate?

The accuracy of blood testing depends on a few important factors. While every lab strives for 100% accuracy, there are occurrences in some scenarios which alter test results. As mentioned previously, sometimes drug or alcohol use is not accounted for and those results can be skewed. Also, if a test requires fasting and the client does not fast then those results will not be correct. On some occasions, lab error does occur as well. If you suspect an inaccuracy in the test results, the doctor who calls you to go over the results can help discuss your options.

  • How long do I have to wait for blood test results?

Blood test results typically come back within two business days of the sample being collected, with some more complex tests taking slightly longer and simpler tests being available faster.

Our goal is to provide simple, easy and affordable blood testing for our clients. To order a test, simply select your desired test from our online test menu, pick the right location for you and then go directly to the testing lab for sample collection.
