Q. How long will my blood draw take?
A blood draw can take anywhere from approximately 10 to 30 minutes depending on such factors as the type and number of tests requested, your blood vessel size and level of hydration.
Q. How do I prepare for my blood draw?
Some tips from our medical director for making your blood draw a better experience:
- Drink lots of fluids before and after the test; however some tests may require you to be fasting for 8 hours.
- Warn the phlebotomist if you have a tendency to faint or pass out during blood draws.
- Be seated or laying down in a stable position so that you cannot fall.
- Close your eyes and relax during the test through relaxation/breathing/visualization exercises.
Q. Why do you need a blood draw? We have had finger pricks only in the past.
Many of our specialized tests require a serum sample for optimal processing and result reporting which can only be obtained through a venous blood draw. We have partnered with Quest Laboratories and other lab companies to provide the most accurate, up-to-date and comprehensive testing menu for all services Lookout Health provides.
Q. If I bought multiple packages, can I get all the blood drawn at one appointment?
If you have an on-site lab draw scheduled, then your labs can be drawn all together. If you have a draw scheduled at Quest Diagnostics, most labs can be done at one appointment; however, some third-party tests in our Specialty Services may require a separate draw or mail-in kit. Please contact customer support if you have any questions about specific tests.
Q. How long will it take to receive my Compass test results?
Typically, results are available for viewing 3-7 business days after your blood draw. Some Specialty Services may take up to 2 weeks for a test result. If it has been more than 10 business days since your blood draw and you have not received any results, please contact Customer Support.
