Save Time and Stress!
Don’t you hate when you go to the doctor and they request that you get blood work done, but you have to go to a completely different place on a different day to do it? At Olney Medical, we understand that having your blood drawn is never a pleasant or easy procedure. We know it’s frustrating trying to find a lab in the Olney area when you have a busy schedule. So to help our patients, we have an in-house phlebotomist. Phlebotomist hours are M-F 8AM to noon and in addition 1:30 to 4:30 on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. No appointment is necessary for phlebotomist.
We think it’s important to invest in one person who can efficiently and properly draw blood to make our patients lives easier.
Can I Eat or Drink Before Having a Blood Test?
For complete blood work or cholesterol checks you should fast for 10 hours; water or black coffee are okay. For diabetics having their 3 month hemoglobin A1C testing only it is not necessary to fast.
