In some cases, you may need to do some preparation for your in-house lab service at Symbios Health. Certain lab services may require you to:
- Fast for several hours or overnight
- Stop taking your medications for a few days
- Have a full bladder
Before your lab appointment at Symbios Health, your provider lets you know if any of these special preparations apply to you. If you don’t need to prepare, you can usually report directly to our lab on-property. Otherwise, you may have to come back another day for your lab work.
For some labs that check for illness, your doctor gets your results immediately. In this case, your doctor discusses your results with you right away and prescribes any necessary medication. Usually, it may take a few days for the lab to process your specimen. Because Symbios Health offers on-site lab testing, you can usually get your results back within about a week. Once your lab results are ready, your provider calls you with any pertinent information or schedules you for a follow-up appointment to go over your results and discuss treatment solutions. Symbios Health provides a variety of in-house lab services.
