Laboratory Services

UHS offers all the services of a modern clinical laboratory, combined with comprehensive clinical and anatomical pathology services. Our laboratories feature state-of-the-art analytical equipment and skilled licensed personnel, including board certified pathologists.

Your physician must write an order for any laboratory service you need. As a patient, you have the right to choose among laboratories in your area. Convenience and a laboratory’s reputation for accuracy and proficiency are probably the most important factors in making this decision. The laboratories at UHS are accredited by the New York State Department of Health and/or the College of American Pathologists. We deliver excellent care and high-quality results, and we hope you’ll choose us each time you require laboratory services around Binghamton, such as blood, glucose or drug testing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I have to fast before some blood tests?

Fasting is necessary before some laboratory tests to ensure accurate results, since some foods interfere with testing. For example, glucose or lipid profiles give a much more accurate result if the patient has fasted prior to having the test. The doctor who orders your test should explain if you need to fast before your laboratory work, or you can call our Laboratory Department in Binghamton and ask about services like blood, glucose or drug testing.

How long is a standing order good for?

Patients who require regular laboratory work may be given a standing order from their physician. A standing order is a convenient way for patients, physicians and the laboratory to monitor certain test levels. Standing orders are good for six months. When a standing order expires, the laboratory sends a notice to your physician requesting a review of the order and renewal, if necessary.

Why might lab tests be delayed?

Before we can perform your lab tests, we must have a complete order from your physician. This includes your first and last name, date of birth, test being ordered, diagnosis code and ordering physician’s signature. If any of this information is incomplete, or if there are special instructions from your doctor, you may have to wait while we contact your physician for clarification.

Can I have a copy of my lab report or call the lab directly for results?

Under New York State Department of Health regulations, laboratory results can only be reported to the physician who ordered the test. Reports or results aren't provided directly from the laboratory to the patient, unless we have received prior, written permission from the ordering physician.

Can you send a copy of my lab results to my primary care physician or specialist?

Although you may be cared for by more than one doctor, the laboratory is only permitted to send the results to the physician who ordered the test. If you’d like additional copies sent to your other doctors, you need to ask the ordering physician to write this on the order. The name or names of the additional providers must be listed on the order.
