Mobile Lab Draws: Ask For Them

If you’re lucky enough to have a health system that offers a mobile lab draw, do it.

My primary care doctor found this option for me, and I feel much safer. They come to my house, and I set up a table and chair in the driveway, and they draw the blood.

They also come in full PPE if you request it, but at minimum gloves and a mask.

I’m just sure to wipe everything I use down before and after. But it sure beats braving a waiting room or going to an office.

Evidently, my health system has had this in place for about 5 years, but hardly any doctors or patients knew about it until very recently.

I just thought I’d pass along this tip for anyone who could use it.
