Frequently Asked Questions
What is fasting?
Fasting requires that you do NOT eat or drink anything 12–14 hours before your lab test. However, contrary to popular belief, water consumption is allowed and encouraged. All medications should be taken as usual.
Do I need to fast?
Certain tests (such as glucose or a cholesterol panel) require fasting. Please consult with your doctor before visiting the laboratory.
Do I need an appointment?
Appointments for routine lab work are not necessary. Patients are seen on a first come, first-served basis.
Why do I need to register each time I visit the laboratory?
Even though you may have registered before, we must ask you to register each time to avoid any billing errors caused by inaccurate or out of date information.
What is Quick Draw?
For patients with standing orders for frequent lab tests, we’ve created a program to help make your experience more efficient. Quick Draw requires an initial registration, and then allows you to bypass the process on all subsequent visits until
your orders expire.
Will my insurance cover my laboratory tests?
San Ramon Regional Medical Center accepts most insurance plans. However, because coverage varies from plan to plan, we recommend you contact your insurance provider for complete details.
Can I find out what my lab tests will cost before they are performed?
Yes. Many of our patients are enrolled in high-deductible health care plans and are concerned about cost. Please ask us to estimate your costs before any services are performed.
When will my doctor get my test results?
Most routine tests are performed in our laboratory and will be completed and reported to your physician within 24–48 hours.
Can I get a copy of my results?
A copy of your results can be obtained through the medical records department at San Ramon Regional Medical Center. You’ll be required to sign an authorization release. Please allow 7–10 days to process your request or go to https://www.sanramonmedctr.com/portal
