Laboratory and X-ray Testing

SCOPE OF SERVICES
LABORATORY
 
The laboratory at Family Medical Center is licensed by the State of Florida and  accredited by the Commission on Offlice Laboratory Accredidation(COLA), a nationally recognized accrediting organization.  It is staffed by qualified technicians, and supervised by a licensed Laboratory Technologist.  The Lab Director is Dr. Jan C. Parrillo.
 
We offer  a full range of laboratory tests.  Most tests ordered by your provider are able to be done by our laboratory.  If your provider orders a test that is not performed here, we will draw the blood and make arrangements for the specimen to be sent to a qualified reference lab approved by your insurance company.
Our office performs lab work for testing ordered by Family Medical Center Physicians only. We cannot honor prescriptions for lab work from other physicians, such as a specialist you may be seeing. In those cases, you must go t the reference lab (Quest or LabCorp, for example) that is designated by your insurance company.

Please Note: You may have an insurance company (Humana, for example), that requires you to go to the outside lab to have your blood drawn. In this case, our lab technicians will give you an order form that you will take to the referenced lab draw station with map provided.

X-RAY

We perform most routine x-rays and Dexascans (for osteoporosis) ordered by our physicians in our office.

Please Note: You may have an insurance company, (Aetna, for example), that requires you to go to an outside facility for your x-ray. In this case, our referral coordinator, x-ray tech or the nurse will direct you to the appropriate facility.

TEST RESULTS

LABORATORY

If you have a follow-up appointment with the doctor or PA, your lab results will be reviewed at that time. If you do not have a follow-up appointment, you may expect notification in the following manner:

 

  1. Normal results will be reported to you via phone call, the patient portal or post card within 10 days of your test,
    or
  2. If your results are abnormal, you should expect to receive a phone call from the nurse, doctor or PA within 2-3 days of your test.

X-RAY

If you have a routine x-ray in our office, you will receive your results the same day. If you are here for a pre-physical chest x-ray, you will receive those results the day of your physical exam.

If required by your insurance company or if you have been referred to an outside facility for your x-ray, your results will be available to our office within 5 business days. You will be contacted by phone by our office when we receive those results.

Notification of Dexascan Results
After you have your Dexascan, you should schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss the results with the doctor or PA.

If you need to take your x-rays to a specialist, please allow 3 business days for our office to prepare your x-rays for pick-up.
