What is Fasting?
The food we eat impacts many levels in our blood. Fasting ensures a method to standardize results for the health care provider to make the best decision for the best outcome. Fasting means no food ingested for 10-12 hours prior to blood draw.

Do I need to Register as a Patient Before My Lab Visit?
Yes, you will need to register unless you are participating in a Lab Wellness Exam or DOT Drug Screening.

Do I Need an Appointment for my Lab Visit?
No, just stop in during our business hours of 6 am - 5:30 pm. Don't forget to register first!

What is Lab Wellness Testing?
HCMH is offering Wellness Laboratory Testing, a program which allows individuals to receive wellness screens without a physician's written order.
