Laboratory Services

Lab Recommendations at Family Medicine Associates

Once your provider has ordered laboratory blood work for you, you may come to the lab anytime between 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday and 8:00 AM - noon on Saturday.

Fasting Labs

A “fasting lab” means you do not eat or drink for at least 10 hours prior to your lab draw.  Black coffee, black tea or water is fine.  You may also take daily medications before your fasting lab.

Lab Orders

FMA provides laboratory services ordered only by the physicians and physician assistants of Family Medicine Associates.

For laboratory tests specifically ordered by endocrinologists, gastroenterologists or other specialists, lab services are available at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, LMH South, or other insurance-approved lab station.

Lab Results

Most non-urgent labs are returned to the office in 5 business days.  However, some tests can take more time. Your nurse can give you an accurate time frame on when your specific tests or labs will be returned to the office.
