  •  Quantity needed (30 day or 90 day)
  •  Date on which the prescription was last filled

Test Results

Once your physician has received and reviewed your test results, we will contact you by phone with the results and with any further directions/suggestions from your physician. Our goal is to get test results to you within one week if possible. If you have questions about your test results, please contact our office so that the doctor and/or staff can answer your questions.
