Frequently Asked Questions about Laboratory Appointments

Yes. The laboratory is appointment only. 

Each clinic laboratory reserves a certain number of visits each day for patients to have a lab test directly after their appointment, as long as patients check in before 4:45 pm. A member of your care team can take you to the laboratory for your test. If your appointment is at the Clinic and Specialty Center, your team will direct you to the second floor registration desk to check in for a lab visit.  

After 4:45pm, patients are asked to make an appointment for a return visit by using MyChart or calling the Connection Center at (612) 873-6963. 

Please make a laboratory appointment by using MyChart or by calling the  Connection Center at (612) 873-6963. All return visits must have a scheduled appointment.
