What to expect for diagnostic labs
Most diagnostic procedures at Medical City Lewisville are performed on an outpatient basis. You may be given pain medication and a mild sedative during some procedures, but many labs are just a collection of samples, such as blood or urine.
For more interventional or invasive diagnostic tests, recovery time is usually four to six hours after the procedure. Most patients can resume normal activities within a day.
Scheduling diagnostic testing
If your procedure requires sedation, you will need to plan for a family member or friend to pick you up and drive you home afterwards. If your procedure is scheduled in advance, one of our nurses will be contacting you to discuss your procedure and begin the pre-procedure assessment process.
This will include gathering information about your physical condition, medical history and current medications. The nurse will also give you specific instructions prior to your scheduled procedure.
To schedule or reschedule an outpatient appointment, call (855) 880-4625.
