If you have questions or concerns, please let us know at any time, before, during, or after your visit. Below are some actions you can take that will help improve your visit.
If you have any questions on how to prepare, please call the lab location you are planning to visit or your provider.
Most importantly, make sure you drink plenty of water in the hours before your visit.
Try to stay relaxed.
Dry skin at the blood collection site can cause more pain.
We will ask you if you have any concerns or questions about the collection process.
During the draw, stay relaxed, breathe, and hold still.
After the draw, we will have you hold consistent pressure on the collection site with gauze.
If you are not feeling ready to stand up after the draw, please let us know and we will help you into a comfortable place to sit and wait until you are ready.
Your results will be sent electronically to your provider as soon as they are completed.
