Laboratory results

Information empowers patients. That’s why we’ve made it easy for you to get your lab results, so you can get valuable insight into your personal health. To receive a free copy of your recent lab test results, simply download the Authorization for Release of Health Information form and send the completed form to the Laboratory Services Center. Lab results can be received by phone, email, mail, fax, or in person four days after your lab work has been completed.

Please note that lab results can only be released to the patient or an authorized representative. Results are also available to some Northwell Health Physician Partners (NHPP) patients through FollowMyHealth, Northwell's patient portal. Call (844) 364-8108 for questions and technical support. 

With Northwell's patient portal FollowMyHealth®, you can view lab results, manage your health information and communicate with providers in a secure online environment 24/7.
