I was able to choose a Quest lab location and schedule an appointment. Check in was easy, and I only needed to provide my name and DOB. They were able to locate my order in their system. They were already aware that my labs were paid for prior to the appointment. I had my labs done on a Wednesday, and I received my results by Saturday. Great experience.

Lab Tests FAQs

  • Where should I get a lab test in Howard Beach?

    Doctors commonly order lab tests and can refer you to one or more reputable lab test centers in your area. Tests can be performed in Howard Beach hospitals, urgent care centers, 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.

Many health insurance providers will cover the cost of lab testing in part or in full.

  • 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. 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.

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

    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.

I went for a Covid rapid test. They had me wait in my car until it was my turn. I went in the back door, took the test, got the results, and was out without any problems.

- Verified patient on 3/4

My husband and I came in for our first COVID test as he was showing symptoms. We didn't know what to expect. The front desk staff was very helpful. We were told we would have a wait, but it wasn't bad and the nurse that swabbed us and PA that explained everything were both great and really put us at ease.

- Verified patient on 3/22

My experience at ProHeath Care was a pleasant one especially due to this Covid world we’re living in. The receptionist was very pleasant. The wait time was perfectly normal. DR Pelczar was very thorough with my Covid test and answered all the questions I asked him. Overall it was a very pleasant experience . I was afraid to go and now I realized That I went to the right place thank you for all your help

- Verified patient on 1/19

Went in for a Covid 19 rapid test. The male nurse behind the counter was a bit rude. He asked with a bit of an attitude, why are you here? And after I replied for a covid test. He then said, well it’s gonna be about 45 mins to an hour! I was like ok... but if someone was going in with a more privet matter. I’m sure they wouldn’t want to shout it across the waiting room in front of other people. Other than that. The rest of the staff was friendly and the wait time was 15 mins.

- Verified patient on 2/9

I went for a rapid covid test (walk-in, I had no appt).. they had appts available for a later time (about 2 hours later) , I was able to go home and they texted me when they were ready for me. Went in the backdoor (i was the only pt. there) was taken right away, waited for results (about 15 mins) the doctor came I with my results and off I went. The nurse who did the swabs was gentle, knowledgeable and very sweet. The Dr. was informative about covid and suggested I get the vaccine (as I knew he would). I wouldn't hesitate going back..

- Verified patient on 1/23

Very quick and super clean and safe! Staff was lovely. I waited a total of 40 minutes including waiting for test results (which take about 15-20 minutes).

- Verified patient on 1/4

I will recommended this place for COVID testing. Staff was super friendly, Service was quick and great. A Totally different experience from CityMD no four hour wait time.

- Verified patient on 2/7

My husband and I needed to have a rapid Covid test. We went to the ProHealth Urgent Care in Howard Beach on a recommendation from our daughter, who had recently been there for a test herself. We arrived without an appointment registered and checked in inside the reception area. We were asked to wait in our car until they called us to come in. We waited about 10-15 minutes then were called inside. Someone came in right away and took our vitals then swabbed is for the test. We were asked to wait in the exam room for 10 minutes to receive our printed results. The whole process took no more than 30 minutes and the staff were pleasant and friendly. I would recommend this facility.

Howard Beach 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.

A lab worker may use a needle to draw blood from your arm or prick your finger to collect a small sample of blood during a blood test. During a urine test, your physician will ask you to go to the restroom and urinate in a sterile cup, then set your sample on a shelf where a lab technician can pick it up and process it. The personnel at the lab testing facility will demonstrate how to do each type of test.
