Patients may find a Quest Diagnostics location that is open on Saturday by performing a location search on Quest Diagnostics' website. The search produces a list of locations that are close to the patient, along with each location's hours. Not all lab locations are open on Saturdays, notes Quest Diagnostics.
When visiting a Quest Diagnostics location for lab testing, patients can make an appointment using the online scheduling tool, but this is not a requirement, according to Quest Diagnostics. To decrease wait time, patients who visit a Quest Diagnostics location without making an appointment should consider arriving after 10 a.m. Quest Diagnostics recommends that patients bring a completed lab requisition form from their health care provider and their health insurance card. Depending on the test, patients may need to fast prior to the lab test, as instructed by their health care providers.
Quest Diagnostics performs a wide range of testing services, including blood testing, body fluid testing, tissue pathology and cytology, health screening and drug testing. Health care providers usually receive test results within 24 hours of receiving the sample, explains Quest Diagnostics. Most patients can access their lab results online or through their doctor's office. Patients may also contact Quest Diagnostics to request a copy of their lab results.
