What to Expect

Visiting a clinical laboratory for diagnostic testing is a typical medical procedure. Here you can learn more about what to expect when you visit Jupiter Medical Center’s lab.

Where do I go for my test?

Jupiter Medical Center’s Outpatient Lab has relocated located to the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center at 2111 Military Trail, Suite 205, Jupiter FL 33458.

Do I need to fast before my test?

Some tests do require that you sustain from eating and drinking for several hours before the test. Your physician will advise you on specific instructions for your tests.

What will happen during the test, and how long will it take?

A phlebotomist, a health care professional trained and nationally certified in drawing blood, will collect your blood and advise you on any other specimens that may be necessary to collect. Patients are not required to make appointments and are taken on a walk-in basis. Every effort is made to get your testing performed in a timely manner.

Where are my specimens sent for testing?

Jupiter Medical Center Laboratory processes most of the lab tests. Associated Regional and University Pathologists, Inc. (ARUP) is our reference Laboratory. ARUP Laboratories is a national reference laboratory and a worldwide leader in innovative laboratory research and development.

When and how do I get my test results?

The tests that are performed in house will be available within 4 to 48 hours and faxed to the ordering doctor. Tests that are performed at our reference laboratory may take three to four days. As soon as they are completed the results will be faxed to your physician. Get instructions on how to request a copy of your medical records.
