Labs and Testing

Complete Testing

If you have been referred for lab or diagnostic testing, please have it completed within 72 hours, or as scheduled. If you do not complete testing as ordered, we will be required to follow up with you.

If medications were prescribed on the basis of expected lab results or other testing, refills may be denied if the testing is not completed. If you have missed an appointment for scheduled testing, please contact the testing facility to reschedule as soon as possible, and then let us know your new appointment so we can update our records that testing has been delayed.

Filling Prescriptions

Most prescriptions are electronically issued directly to your pharmacy during your office visit. Please be aware that, although we transmit the prescription immediately, some pharmacies require 48 hours or more to process the prescription. (This often occurs when they have centralized prescription handling, that must process the prescription before forwarding it to the individual store for filling.) Accordingly, you will want to call your pharmacy to confirm that your prescription is ready before going to the pharmacy.
