Preparing for Your Advanced Mobile Phlebotomy Visit

To prepare for your blood or specimen collection, it is important to follow your doctor’s instructions.

  • If fasting is required for your blood test, you will need to begin fasting 10 to 12 hours before your scheduled draw time, unless otherwise advised by your doctor. 
  • During the fasting period, please drink plenty of water to stay hydrated for a smoother draw process. Some kits may require limited fluid intake, so please adhere to any preparation directions provided with your kit.
  • We understand that fees for our services may vary depending on location and the service needed. Therefore, payments are due when scheduling appointments, and we accept all major credit cards. 
  • If you would like a quote, please contact our customer service department, and we will be happy to assist you.

Specialty Kits

  • When preparing your kit, fill out the request form included and provide any additional paperwork requested by your kit provider. 
  • Please check with your doctor to find out how payment for kit testing should be handled. 
  • You may need to provide payment information along with your completed kit. 
  • Follow the patient instructions in your kit for fasting and other preparations before the blood test.

Lab Forms

Routine Lab Draws

Routine blood testing is a common medical procedure used to evaluate the overall health of a patient. 

A routine blood test typically involves drawing a small sample of blood from a vein in the arm, which is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. The results of the test are used by doctors to diagnose and monitor a range of medical conditions, such as infections, anemia, and certain types of cancer.

The Blood Draw Process

A routine blood test is performed in your home or office, by a trained medical professional, such as a phlebotomist. The procedure typically takes only a few minutes and involves the following steps:

  • The patient will be asked to sit in a comfortable position, with their arm extended and palm facing upwards.
  • The medical professional will clean the area around the vein with an antiseptic solution.
  • A tourniquet will be applied to the upper arm to help locate a suitable vein for the blood draw.
  • The medical professional will insert a needle into the vein and collect a small sample of blood into a collection tube.
  • Once the sample has been collected, the needle will be removed and a bandage or cotton ball will be placed over the puncture site to stop any bleeding.

After the Procedure

After the blood has been collected, it is sent to a laboratory for analysis. The results of the test are typically available within a few days and will be provided to the patient’s doctor, who will review the results and discuss any abnormal findings with the patient.

It is important to note that routine blood testing is just one tool that doctors use to evaluate a patient’s health. A single abnormal result does not necessarily indicate a medical condition and may require further testing or monitoring over time to determine if there is a consistent issue. 

It is worth noting that routine blood testing is generally considered safe and relatively painless. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some potential risks and complications to be aware of. These may include bleeding or infection at the site of the blood draw, fainting, or discomfort during the procedure.

Types of Routine Lab Draws

The doctor may order some routine blood tests to get more information about your health. These tests can help the doctor identify any problems or conditions that need to be addressed.

Here are some different types of routine labs that a doctor might order:

Complete Blood Count (CBC)

A CBC is a common test that measures the number and types of cells in your blood. This test looks at your red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Red blood cells carry oxygen to different parts of your body, white blood cells help fight infections, and platelets help your blood clot. A CBC can help your doctor identify if you have anemia, infection, or other conditions that affect your blood cells.

Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP)

A BMP measures different chemicals in your blood, including electrolytes, glucose, and kidney function. Electrolytes are minerals that help your body function properly, and glucose is a type of sugar that provides energy for your cells. This test can help your doctor identify if you have diabetes, kidney disease, or other conditions that affect your body’s chemical balance.

Lipid Panel

A lipid panel measures the levels of different types of fats in your blood, including cholesterol and triglycerides. Cholesterol is a type of fat that can build up in your arteries and increase your risk for heart disease. Triglycerides are another type of fat that your body uses for energy. This test can help your doctor identify if you have high cholesterol or other risk factors for heart disease.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)

A TSH test measures the level of a hormone called thyroid stimulating hormone in your blood. This hormone is produced by your pituitary gland and helps regulate the activity of your thyroid gland. Your thyroid gland is responsible for producing hormones that regulate your metabolism, or the rate at which your body burns calories. This test can help your doctor identify if you have an overactive or underactive thyroid gland.

Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c)

An HbA1c test measures the average level of glucose in your blood over the past 2-3 months. This test is used to monitor blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. If you have diabetes, your doctor may order this test to see how well your blood sugar is being controlled over time.

Vitamin D Test

A vitamin D test measures the level of vitamin D in your blood. Vitamin D is important for maintaining healthy bones, teeth, and muscles. This test can help your doctor identify if you have a vitamin D deficiency, which can lead to conditions such as osteoporosis or muscle weakness.

Liver Function Tests (LFTs)

LFTs measure the levels of different enzymes and proteins produced by the liver. The liver is responsible for filtering toxins from the blood and producing bile to aid in digestion. LFTs can help your doctor identify if you have liver disease, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis.

Iron Panel

An iron panel measures the levels of iron in your blood. Iron is important for producing red blood cells and carrying oxygen throughout the body. This test can help your doctor identify if you have anemia or other conditions that affect your body’s ability to produce red blood cells.

C-reactive Protein (CRP)

A CRP test measures the level of CRP in your blood. CRP is a protein produced by the liver in response to inflammation in the body. This test can help your doctor identify if you have inflammation due to infection, injury, or other medical conditions.

Prothrombin Time (PT) and International Normalized Ratio (INR)

PT and INR tests measure the time it takes for your blood to clot. These tests can help your doctor identify if you have a bleeding disorder or if you are taking medications that affect your blood’s ability to clot.


A urinalysis is a test that measures different components of your urine, including protein, glucose, and bacteria. This test can help your doctor identify if you have a urinary tract infection, kidney disease, or other conditions that affect your urinary system.
