🤳Step 3: The Phlebotomy Options
BLOOD DRAW, MOBILE, CLINIC
You’ve received your patient instruction page! Now, let’s schedule a phlebotomy appointment to complete your test!
What you need to do!
- Decide what phlebotomy service provider to use to complete your draw
- Contact the provider and verify all the information for your draw
- Schedule an appointment
See below for more details about these steps ☑️
There are two main types of phlebotomy services: clinic and mobile:
|Types of Phlebotomy Services|
|Clinic 🏥||Mobile 🚙|
|Kit||Bring with you||At home|
|Complete Kit Drop Off||Varies||Yes|
Note: always call your location first to confirm all details; these are typical for these types of services, but may vary between companies.
Your patient instruction sheet will have local phlebotomy options provided with contact information.
In some situations, your practitioner will have a preferred location for you to complete your draw - this will be obvious on your patient instruction page.
When reaching out to schedule your appointment, we recommend confirming:
- They can draw for your specific kit
- The cost of the draw 💰
- The phlebotomist can coordinate shipping the completed kit back to the lab
