Carbon Health Urgent Care, Sacramento Natomas - 4112 E Commerce Way
Other than a 45 minute wait despite having an appointment it was good due to staff. There are. I chairs in waiting room that disabled people like me can use. They all swivel. I suggest you get a solid chair with arms to show you care about your patients. Very unsafe.

When I clicked on Book It on your website, the circle icon spun and spun as if it didn't make the appt. I went through the appt process again with the same result. Later I had a text saying I DID have the appt. But when I checked in, the receptionist said the appt was NOT in the system. It was Urgent Care and she was able to get me in 2 hrs later...

We waited an hour in line for the PA, the gal that was actually giving the tests was awesome, friendly, she actually got another PA to help us because it was taking so long

My wife has not gotten her Covid test results. I got mine. They were both on at the same time and we are concerned that there was a technical problem. Time critical. Customer service in helping has been great. Please help us if you can.

I went in this urgent care for a quick covid test and the ladies in there were very nice and took care of me in a timely manner even with all the customers they had. Was a great experience.

- Verified patient on 5/8

I understand the signage at the airport blew down last week. Recommend you put some signage on the tents so patients can ID your facility from a distance. Maui now requests you upload PCR test 24 hours prior. You can not get tested more 72 hours before. Your staff is quoting a return of tests within 48 hours. Do you see how all this comes together. Creates stress for the traveler. Would suggest you state you will have test results back in 24 to 36 hours. If you are running these tests on the Abbott ID Now or other larger units we all know test results can be achieved very quickly. Less stress...better for everyone. Thx for listening. Staff was courteous and professional!

- Verified patient on 2/17

This test was so much better than any other. They let u do it on your own and u don’t have to stick the whole 5 inches of the swab in your nose. It doesn’t hurt at all

I came during lunch so a little waiting. My fault. Everyone was wonderful, office staff, med tech and Christina the nurse was excellent. Great experience. Will definitely go back for my next test.

Did my covid test at SMF at 933am, just under 72 hours before my flight to hawaii. Received my results after 30 hours on a 48 hour test. The staff was great. The whole process went very well.

Friendly staff and the wait time was not long at all...both my husband and I had appointments for 1:43 & 1:46... we were given the test and sent on our way... about 23 hours later we were notified by text that our results were in. We took the covid test because we are flying to Hawaii and the are required 72 hours prior to departure...getting our results back so quickly lifted a huge stress off of both of us....we will definitely be using them again!!

- Verified patient on 1/20

I had a 9:07 appointment and there was a line of about 20-30 cars ahead, so I didn’t get through the test for about an hour. However, the staff was really nice and the testing procedure itself was very simple.

Sacramento Lab Tests

Lab tests take samples of your blood, urine, saliva, and other bodily secretions, which are then analyzed in a lab to help doctors diagnose and treat certain illnesses. Lab tests can be used to diagnose an illness, detect changes in an existing condition, and monitor how your body responds to a therapy, among other things. They can also be used to monitor the progression of a disease or a set of diseases.

If your doctor is unable to make a definitive diagnosis of your disease, or if you are having a variety of symptoms that could indicate a variety of disorders, he or she may request a lab test. To see how you're responding to a drug or to check if you're at risk for certain diseases, lab tests may be performed.If your doctor is unable to make a definitive diagnosis of your disease, or if you are having a variety of symptoms that could indicate a variety of disorders, he or she may request a lab test. To see how you're responding to a drug or to check if you're at risk for certain diseases, lab tests may be performed.

Some lab tests require no preparation at all, while others may require you to fast for eight to twelve hours before the test in order to avoid erroneous results from certain meals and beverages. Your healthcare provider may advise you to cease smoking, exercising, and taking certain medications and nutritional supplements for many hours or days before your blood test.

Before your lab test, ask your doctor for precise instructions to follow to minimize erroneous results and multiple trips to the lab for additional testing.

The personnel at the lab testing facility will demonstrate how to do each type of test.

Lab Tests FAQs

  • Where should I get a lab test in Sacramento?

    Doctors commonly order lab tests and can refer you to one or more reputable lab test centers in your area. Lab tests can be performed in Sacramento urgent care centers, hospitals, and walk-in clinics that specialize in lab testing. Your healthcare practitioner can supply you with a list of lab test providers, or you can use Solv to see what's available in your area.

  • How much do lab tests cost?

    The cost of a lab test is determined by several factors, including the type of test, your location, whether you have insurance, and the fees charged by the lab test provider. Many health insurance providers will cover the cost of lab testing in part or in full. Those who do not have insurance, on the other hand, will almost certainly face higher costs. Contact lab test providers directly to confirm the cost of your lab test based on your health insurance benefits.

  • Does insurance cover lab testing?

    Many health insurance plans will cover lab tests that your doctor determines are medically necessary for your illness. The easiest way to find out if your health plan covers lab testing is to contact your insurance carrier directly or ask the lab test provider to check your insurance benefits and verify price.Many health insurance plans will cover lab tests that your doctor determines are medically necessary for your illness.

  • How long does it take to get lab test results in Sacramento?

    Lab test results may be available in minutes, hours, days, or weeks, depending on the type of test performed, lab staff productivity, and your doctor's availability. Some lab test providers let you see your results as soon as they're available online, while others need you to wait for your doctor's answer. Your doctor or the lab provider can give you a more accurate estimate of when your lab test results will arrive.

  • What is a routine lab test?

    A basic lab test may evaluate your red and white blood cell counts to discover if you have anemia, a blood infection, or blood cancer. It may also test fat levels in your blood to determine your risk of heart disease and examine the health of your organs, such as your heart, kidneys, and liver. Your healthcare provider will be able to explain what a typical lab test entails.

  • What STDs can be detected by a blood test?

    A blood test can identify STDs such as syphilis, HIV, hepatitis C, and herpes. Your doctor may order that blood be collected and submitted to a lab, or that you undergo STD testing at a lab test provider. STD test results might arrive in minutes, days, or weeks, depending on the lab test company you work with.

  • Do I need to see a doctor before getting a lab test?

    Before performing specific tests, some lab test providers require a doctor's referral, while others do not. The benefit of seeing a doctor before getting a lab test is that you can assess whether or not you need one based on your symptoms and a physical examination. A doctor can also help you decide which tests are necessary.

  • How can I book a lab test on Solv?

    On our home page, please specify the type of lab service you desire, as well as your location and state. Solv will give you with a list of lab test providers in your area, as well as their contact information, so you can make an appointment right immediately.

  • How long does getting a lab test take?

    The majority of lab tests are completed in a matter of minutes, but certain providers may have extensive wait times that require you to spend up to an hour in the lab. To limit the amount of time you spend waiting for your lab test, schedule an appointment with Solv ahead of time.

  • Should I try at-home lab testing?

    Privacy, convenience, and accuracy are all advantages of at-home lab testing. Some at-home lab testing services, however, may not be covered by your health insurance plan. Some healthcare practitioners may seek additional lab tests to corroborate their diagnosis of specific health concerns. Consult your doctor to see if at-home lab testing is appropriate for you, given your unique health situation.Privacy, convenience, and accuracy are all advantages of at-home lab testing.
