Many patients have questions before, during and after providing lab tests. Below are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs”) OVME receives.

Medical lab tests are quantitative examinations of blood, body fluids, and tissues performed in order to analyze what is normal or abnormal for you as a patient.
60% to 70% of medical diagnoses and/or treatments are based on lab tests. Lab results can identify changes in your overall health, diagnose a disease or condition, evaluate your response to a treatment, or monitor the course of a disease over time.
Most test results are ready by the next day. However, availability may vary depending on the type of test. OVME will provide you with results as soon as they are complete.
This is dependent upon the type of blood test ordered. If you are unsure, please contact your provider or ask an OVME staff member.
Please take your medication unless given specific instructions by your primary care physician not to do so.
