Our Outpatient Laboratory presents a comfortable, convenient setting for our phlebotomist to administer the tests you need.

On a daily basis, we draw blood with ability, experience, and sensitivity. Our highly skilled phlebotomists obtain needed samples with minimal stress.

Once the samples are obtained, they are sent to the main laboratory for testing, and results are given directly to your physician.

Our lab is open Mon-Thurs 7am-4:30pm and Fridays 7am-12:30pm

Frequently Asked Questions

What is fasting?

Fasting requires that you do NOT eat or drink anything 12-14 hours before your lab test. However, contrary to popular belief, water consumption is allowed and encouraged. All medications should be taken as usual.

Do I need to fast?

Certain tests (such as glucose or a cholesterol panel) require fasting. Please consult with your physician before visiting the laboratory.

Do I need an appointment?

Appointments for routine lab work are not necessary. Patients are seen on a first come, first serve basis.

Will my insurance cover my laboratory tests?

Diabetes and Lipid Clinic of Alaska accepts most insurance plans. However, because coverage varies from plan to plan, we recommend you contact your insurance provider for complete details.

When will my doctor get my test results?
