When Will I Get My Lab Results Back?
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.
But usually, it may take a few days for the lab to process your specimen. Because First Care Medical Clinic 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.
First Care Medical Clinic provides a variety of in-house lab services. Find out more information by scheduling an appointment online or over the phone with the location nearest you.
