What your ACN laboratory wants you to know about lab work

What your ACN laboratory wants you to know about lab work:

1. Our lab staff has a combined 110 years of experience! (Whoah, that's A LOT! No wonder we are so good!)
2. If you're squeamish or feel faint, don't be a tough guy, let US know!!
3. Drink plenty of water before a lab draw. (This makes it easier for us to find your vein—that's a good thing). Anything with caffeine does NOT count or help; so no coffee, tea or soda!
4. Lab opens in the wee morning hours of 7:00am, for all you early birds. We close at 3:30; so if you have a lab only appointment, better be here by 3:00 so you don't miss us.
5. If you have questions about your lab results, don't ask us-- we don't always see the results. Check out the patient portal or call your favorite nurse!
6. Nobody likes to get their blood drawn, we get it. But, just know that your test results play a BIG part in helping your provider figure out how to make you feel better.
