Advance blood draw means no waiting for lab results on the day of your appointment
Did you know there's a way to fast-track your clinic appointments? By scheduling your blood draw a few days in advance, you can skip the line in Phlebotomy on the day of your appointment and see your doctor without waiting for your lab results. Here's how:
- Ask your doctor if you're eligible for this service.
- Schedule your blood draw at a location that's most convenient for you: the Roswell Park hospital in downtown Buffalo, our Amherst Center, or one of three Catholic Health System laboratories. (See details below.)
To change your blood draw appointment, call your clinic.
For advance blood draw at the Roswell Park hospital
- Contact your clinic to arrange an advance blood draw at the hospital.
- You may schedule a specific time for your appointment. Times are available Monday-Friday between 6-7 a.m. or 1-4:30 p.m.
- Please do not use valet parking, because you should be finished with the blood draw before the valets can park and retrieve your vehicle.
- Your parking fee can be validated by the Phlebotomy staff if advance phlebotomy is your only appointment.
