Western Diagnostic Pathology Riverton, Answers Some Frequently Asked Questions
Do we accept all pathology request forms?
Yes. Western Diagnostic Pathology will perform all testing regardless of what pathology company your request is from. If your health care provider has asked that a particular pathologist conduct the tests, then we will forward your collection to the requested pathologist.
Do I need an appointment?
No, however our pathology collection centres are often busiest in the morning when fasting patients arrive first. Therefore, you may wish to arrive after 10am for a shorter wait time.
Do I need to stop my medications before being tested?
Usually not, however, this may depend on the type of test you are having. You should not stop any of your medications unless your doctor has told you to do so. Please bring a list of all your current medications (including dosage) to your collection as you will need to disclose this to the collection staff member. Should you require assistance with this list of medications, your pharmacist will be able to print you off a list.
How long does it take for my doctor to receive my test results?
Routine pathology is general processed within 48 hours of collection; however, specialised testing can take several days. Speak with your doctor for more details prior to your test.
