It is not possible for patients to request their own test. MLS can only honor tests requested by a physician or other certified medical entity.
It is not necessary to make an appointment. Our services are offered on a walk-in basis, during our regular business hours.
Usually the requesting practitioner will indicate whether the patient needs to be fasting for blood collection. Please feel free to contact us when planning to come in, so we can help clarify any doubt regarding this.
The time it takes for the test results to come back is entirely dependent on the type of test, the duration of the test itself, and how many times the test is performed. The majority of test are completed and reported back to the requesting physician within 24 hours.
It is possible for patients to pick up a copy of their own test results, upon approval of the requesting physician or medical entity. A valid ID must be presented in order to obtain test results. Please note that MLS always delivers a hard copy of the test results to the requesting physician or medical entity, and that results are not provided over the phone.
Unfortunately, for data protection purposes, we do not send test results via mail at this time.
