Mendez Medical Center


Providing the medical care you want and the attention you deserve

Our On-site Lab

Our on-site lab will draw blood work for patients in our office. If you have an order from a specialist, we will draw the blood work for you. Our staff will help you with your lab order, draw your blood and collect other specimens in an anxiety-free environment.

Why do I need to fast before some lab tests?

Some tests are accurate only if you have been fasting before having your blood drawn. If your provider tells you that you need to fast before your tests, you should not eat food or drink anything besides water. If your blood work is done early in the morning, DO NOT eat or drink anything besides water after midnight. You may take medications while fasting and you should drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and help make your blood draw easier. If your blood work is done in the afternoon, please DO NOT eat or drink anything besides water for at least six (6) hours before the appointment.

What if I want to go to an off-site lab for testing?

If you prefer, you can go to an off-site lab such as LabCorp, Quest Diagnostics, or any local medical center for your tests. Please notify us if you are going to an off-site lab to send the lab orders. Call our office at least one (1) week before your scheduled appointment. Contact the off-site lab directly to schedule an appointment and find out about their respective locations/hours.
