Northwell Health Labs is one of the largest integrated health system laboratories in the Northeast. We provide a full range of routine and specialized testing that meets the highest quality standards. At our Blood Testing Service Centers, patients receive the friendly, competent service they expect with accurate diagnostic results.
Before visiting one of our conveniently located locations for blood drawing:
- Call your physician or the Northwell Health Labs location nearest you to determine if tests ordered will require fasting or special preparation.
- Be sure to bring a copy of your physician’s test requisition or prescription along with your insurance information or card.
- Appointments are only necessary for time-sensitive tests such as glucose tolerance and platelet aggregation.
- When you arrive at the laboratory, you will be greeted by our friendly staff and asked to sign in. One of our highly trained professionals with experience in blood drawing will guide you through the process to make it as easy and pain free as possible.
Our experienced phlebotomists are also trained in pediatric care and will use calm and gentle techniques to make sure your child feels as comfortable as possible. Ask for a copy of our Parent’s Guide for some helpful tips for you and your child.
Your physician will receive a completed report from Northwell Health Labs when your test results become available.
If you do not have your insurance card, we will still draw your blood. However, you will have to follow-up by faxing a copy of your insurance information directly to our Billing Department at (516) 414-3825. We accept all major insurances. We also accept payment via cash, check or credit card.
Translation services are available in more than 180 languages. Ask the phlebotomist for assistance.
You can get your test results directly from us. To get results sent to you, download the "Patient Request to Access or Disclose Laboratory Test Results form." Fill out the form and return it to us.
Patients may request results over the phone, via email, via fax and in person. The Authorization for Release of Health Information Pursuant to HIPAA Form must be filled out by the patient or representative before results may be released. The form contains patient specific identification information and it may be mailed, emailed, faxed or picked-up at the laboratory or at any Blood Testing Service Center. Upon completion of the request form, and all required verifications, the results can be released to the patient or authorized representative. Results may be picked–up from the performing laboratory or at any Blood Testing Service Center. Alternatively, the results may be faxed, e-mailed, or mailed to the patient at the address which is maintained on file. Results are also available to some patients through FollowMyHealth, Northwell Health’s patient portal; call (888) 670-9775 for questions/technical support. Patient results will be available four days after all laboratory test results are complete.
The laboratory cannot answer any questions in reference to interpretation, diagnosis or treatment of laboratory results. All questions regarding testing and the results will be answered by the patient's physician only.
