How do I get my Lab Results?

Your lab results are very important to us.  All laboratory results are sent to the physician requesting the tests. They are also placed in your medical record as soon as they are completed.  Regulations do not permit laboratory employees to give results to patients. Please contact your doctor for the results of your tests.

When will my results be ready?

Most routine tests results will be faxed to your provider the day after the tests are performed.  Certain tests may take several days to be completed.  If your provider has requested that your tests be evaluated immediately, the results will be called in as well as faxed to your doctor’s office as soon as they are complete.
