Prepare for Blood Work

Most tests are quick, but some require special preparation. For example, the lab may ask you not to eat before you have your blood drawn. Please ask your doctor or lab provider questions if you have concerns. For example:

  • Why do I need this test?
  • Will the test hurt?
  • How will the results change my care?
We can conduct more than 300 tests from a blood sample
