I was very impressed by how quickly the test was done, and relatively painlessly. Very quick in and out. You can only get this with someone who's been doing this for 20 years. Come if you're afraid of needles and want steady hands!

Super quick and clean! I waited for less than 5 min & check in was smooth. The technician who took the sample did it quickly and I barely felt the needle

I went to this location on Saturday morning and was able to check-in smoothly using the kiosk. Arrived 10-15 mins early for my 10:00 appointment and was seen by 10:03. The staff who helped me through the entire appointment was pleasant, careful, and efficient.

Once I checked in, I was seen within 10 to 15 minutes. The receptionist also acted as the person who draws blood. She was perfectly nice but not overly so where it felt inauthentic. I was out after about 5 minutes worth of blood drawn, so I'd say the whole experience took about 20-25 minutes. Space was overall clean. It's a very unassuming location just down from Park Avenue, I believe. Blink and you might miss it.

Wonderful experience! Came here for a diabetes (blood sugar) test for my mother. It was a very short wait time. We came 6 minutes before the appointment, the estimated wait time after checking in was 6 minutes, and we were taken in for the test in about 4 minutes after check in. We will definitely return to this location.

This has to be the nicest, cleanest, most professional lab facility I have ever been to. I went in around lunchtime, expecting delays and lots of impatient people. What I experienced was far from this. The assistant, was very professional and courteous. There were two other patients and they handled each of us with respect and due diligence. I plan on coming to this location for ALL my lab work in the future! Plus, I have been recommending this place to all my friends and colleagues.

Latest CMP Test Updates

Oct 31, 2022
A surge in respiratory syncytial virus is putting severe strain on children's hospitals nationwide. Hospitals first began seeing the unseasonable RSV rise in August. Now, many are reporting a case increase of over 300 percent compared to last month. (Becker's)
Oct 28, 2022
Flu-related hospitalizations nationwide have risen dramatically in recent weeks, reaching levels historically not seen until much later in flu season, according to data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (NBC News)

CMP Test FAQs

  • What is a CMP blood test?

    A CMP blood test measures 14 different substances in your blood to help you and your doctor determine whether you have one or more serious health problems. This test can reveal information about your protein, calcium, and blood sugar levels and evaluate your liver and kidney function. CMP tests are usually done as part of a routine medical checkup but may also be performed to diagnose liver and kidney problems.

  • What is included in a comprehensive metabolic panel?

    A CMP entails the examination of 14 distinct chemicals. The following are the aspects of the test that are evaluated:

    • Albumin (a liver protein)
    • Alkaline phosphatase (ALP)
    • Alanine aminotransferase (ALT)
    • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST)
    • Blood glucose
    • Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
    • Calcium
    • Carbon dioxide (CO2)
    • Chloride
    • Creatinine
    • Potassium
    • Sodium
    • Total bilirubin (a waste product made by the liver)
    • Total protein
  • How much do CMP tests cost?

    The cost of a CMP test varies depending on a number of factors, including provider fees, geographic area, and whether or not your health insurance covers it. The best approach to find out how much a CMP test costs is to call the CMP provider directly or confirm whether the test is covered by your health insurance provider.

  • Does insurance cover CMP testing?

    Yes, many health insurance plans will pay some or all of the costs of a CMP test, particularly if your doctor determines that it is medically essential based on your current health state. Some CMP test providers may contact your insurance provider on your behalf to confirm your coverage, but you can also confirm benefits with your health provider before choosing a CMP provider.

  • Where should I get a comprehensive metabolic panel?

    When referring patients for a CMP, many doctors will refer you to the lab or hospital where they normally work. A CMP test, on the other hand, may be available at any healthcare provider that provides this service, such as urgent care clinics, hospitals, and clinical laboratories. You may also utilize Solv to find top-rated CMP testing providers in your area.

  • How long does it take to get CMP blood test results?

    The results of your CMP blood test can take anywhere from a few hours to a day to arrive. When the findings are ready, some CMP providers will contact you directly and allow you to review them online, while others will send the results to your doctor. Inquire with the CMP provider about when you might expect to receive your test results.

  • What is the normal range for a comprehensive metabolic panel?

    Because different CMP providers may employ different metrics, the “normal” range for values in a CMP will vary slightly. Albumin levels should be between 3.4 and 5.4 g/dL, whereas total protein levels should be between 6.0 and 8.3 g/dL. Inquire with the CMP provider about the particular ranges that they consider normal for each value in the test.

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

    Some CMP testing companies require a physician's referral for this test, while others do not. A CMP test may be ordered by your doctor as part of a standard physical examination or if liver or renal disease is suspected. Before arranging an appointment or showing up for the CMP test, check with the CMP provider to see if you need a doctor's reference.

  • How can I book a CMP test through Solv?

    Solv is a simple, time-saving approach to locate high-quality CMP test providers in your area without having to conduct many online searches. Enter "Comprehensive Metabolic Panel" or "CMP Test" into the provider search area on our website, along with your location. Solv will then present you with a list of the best CMP testing providers in your area, together with their contact information, so you can schedule an appointment straight away.

  • Can I do at home CMP testing?

    Some providers provide CMP test kits online, but you may be required to take them to a lab or doctor's office for administration. A doctor may come to your house to take a blood sample for the CMP test before sending it to the lab in some cases. Inquire with your healthcare practitioner about whether at-home CMP testing is available or feasible for you, given your specific health status.

Virginia Comprehensive Metabolic Panel

The levels of 14 chemicals in your blood are measured in a CMP test to help you and your doctor understand more about your body's metabolism and chemical equilibrium. The eight tests that make up a basic metabolic panel (BUN, glucose, calcium, CO2, creatine, chloride, potassium, and sodium) are included in a CMP test, as well as albumin, ALP, ALT, AST, total bilirubin, and total protein. CMP testing may be included in a standard checkup or ordered by your doctor to diagnose diabetes, liver illness, or kidney disease.

The tests included in a CMP can evaluate the following body functions and processes, including:

  • Metabolism
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Kidney function
  • Lung function
  • Blood acid and base balance
  • Protein levels
  • Electrolyte levels

A CMP test takes minimal preparation. You must, however, fast for eight to twelve hours before to the procedure. Your doctor will also want you to submit a list of all over-the-counter, prescription, and nutritional supplements you're taking, as some of them may alter your test results. Dehydration, pregnancy, and eating or exercising immediately before the test are all factors that could alter your results.

A medical expert draws a sample of your blood, which is then placed in one or more vials, and the CMP test normally takes less than five minutes. The vials are submitted to the lab for assessment and analysis, and the results are sent back to the customer.

A CMP test carries very minimal hazards. Minor soreness and bruising may occur at the injection site, but this normally goes away within a day or two. After a CMP test, some people may feel dizzy, lightheaded, or faint, which is typical.

The results of a CMP test are normally available within 24 hours, though you may have to wait longer depending on when your doctor calls you. If any anomalies are found, your doctor may prescribe more testing to rule out certain disorders or diagnose you with a health condition based on the abnormal readings. Your doctor may also invite you to come in for a consultation to explore your treatment options.
