Laboratory

If your laboratory work is performed by LabCorp we will give you a pamphlet at your visit. The pamphlet lists 5 steps that you will need to follow to receive your results. You will then choose a user name and password that you can use to retrieve future laboratory results.  

If your laboratory work is performed by Quest, you will receive a business card with your ID number, instructions and the phone number for the automated results line. Just call the number and follow the prompts to obtain your results. Don't forget to keep your ID number handy when calling. Should you misplace your card or if we fail to give you one at your appointment, simply call the office and a receptionist will be happy to provide you with this information (after verifying your identity).

All normal results and some abnormal results can be obtained using this system. If your results are abnormal and require some explanation or discussion you will receive a phone call from your medical provider or a nurse. Your results take some time to process - you may expect that they will be available in the following timeframes (may be slightly longer around the holidays).

  • Pap Smears: 2-3 weeks after your appointment
  • Biopsies: 10-14 business days after your appointment
  • Blood work: 10-14 business days after your appointment
  • Cultures: 2-3 weeks after your appointment

Mammogram results will not be on the messaging system. We will send a notification by mail of all results within 7-10 business days unless we’re awaiting prior films for comparison.
