If the doctor orders a blood test, it will be performed the same day as your appointment. To make the blood draw easier, we recommend drinking plenty of water before or during your visit. Results are usually available the following clinic.
If we cannot perform a blood draw on the day of your appointment, you may be asked to return the following week to try again. Let the next week’s receptionist know you are there for a blood draw when you check in. We will only see you for the blood draw the following week, but if you have another pressing medical concern we can add you to the waiting list for that specific clinic day.
The doctor may also prescribe medication for you to take. We have an on-site dispensary with basic medications, but we can write a prescription to an outside pharmacy if needed or preferred.
