- Some tests may require you to fast for 12-14 hours preceding specimen collection. Ask your physician for instructions to ensure accurate results. You may drink water if the physician requires you to fast.

What You Should Know Before Visiting the Lab
Orders are Necessary
All health providers require orders before they are able to draw your labs. If they do not have any order on their system, they will not perform your tests. Contact us to make sure your labs are in the system before you visit.
Each test offered at Well Life Family Medicine is different and may cost more or less than your estimated amount. Contact the labs and inquire about your bill before you come for your test. If you have Medicare, you may be required to fill a form in case you want a particular test done that Medicare may not pay for.
The busiest time of day for lab testing is usually between 7AM to 1PM. Waiting time in early morning appointments can range from 20-45 minutes so plan your day accordingly.
Reports and Results
Due to the different nature of each test, results may take from 24 hours to 2 weeks. You may contact the Lab for further information on when you may expect your lab reports.
