Instructions for Lab Work

Scheduling/Completion of Lab Work

You will be scheduled to have your labs drawn on a specific date/time. It is important that you come on that scheduled date so the lab requisition will be completed appropriately in anticipation of your arrival.

To schedule or in the event that you need to cancel or reschedule you upcoming lab appointment, please call 919.782.1806 and press 0 when prompted.

internal medical lab instructions

You should report to the front desk of Raleigh Medical Group and notify a receptionist that you are here for your scheduled lab work. You will be sent to the laboratory area and a technician from LabCorp will draw your blood or collect the appropriate specimens.

After completion of your lab visit, please check out with the front office for payment or filing with your insurance as indicated by your individual insurance plan.


For fasting lab tests, please do not eat or drink anything, other than water, 12 hours prior to your appointment. If you are diabetic, please check with a physician before fasting. We encourage you to drink plenty of water. You may take your medications prior to your lab visit unless a medication level is being measured (digoxin or seizure medication, for example). Your nurse will give you specific information if medication levels are to be drawn.

Please do not arrive on a date other than your scheduled day for your lab work.

Thank you for working with us so that these procedures can be completed smoothly and efficiently.
