What Should I Do to Prepare?
When you schedule blood work to be done, the doctor will give you instructions. Specifically, you will learn what you need to do, or refrain from doing, before your appointment. Some tests require you to not drink or eat beforehand (typically 8-12 hours). Additionally, you should eat less fatty or fried food, and avoid alcohol for 1-2 days before your appointment.
At Bayside Urgent Care Center, we can usually draw blood the same day we see you. This is true even if you don’t have an appointment. But, if you don’t meet the requirements on that day, we can reschedule your testing for a different day.
How is Blood Work Done?
In some cases, a blood draw can be a simple finger prick for a drip of blood. However, we often draw blood by inserting a needle into your arm. We can then fill the necessary vials for different tests.
Does Bayside Urgent Care Center Accept Insurance?
Yes. We accept Medicare and most major insurance carriers. If you are underinsured, uninsured, or prefer to pay out-of-pocket, our services are reasonably priced, and we offer flexible payment plans.
