About Your Lab Tests and Results
Lab work and blood tests are ordered by your healthcare provider for a variety of reasons. They are used to monitor routine conditions, screen for disease or to help confirm or rule out a diagnosis. When you provide blood, a throat swab, urine or other specimen, samples are sent to a lab for examination. Most routine lab tests are sent to your provider within 24 hours, if your provider feels your condition warrants a STAT test, it will be available sooner.
Some specialized tests may take up to ten days. Please speak to your provider about any questions, when to expect your results and if any next steps are needed.
