Please note, while labs associated with preventive services do not require a copay, your doctor may order other labs as part of a preventive visit that do require a copay.

Prepare for your lab draw by:
- Bringing Photo Identification
- Bringing Kaiser Medical Record Number
- Drinking Water: Unless otherwise advised by your provider, water is encouraged prior to the test as staying hydrated can help make lab draws or urine collection easier.
If your doctor has advised that you need a fasting test, please do the following:
- Do not eat for 12 hours prior to the test
- Continue to take medications as prescribed by your provider
- Unless otherwise advised by your doctor, continue to drink water prior to the test to ensure you are not dehydrated for the blood draw
If it is possible to bring your child to a site that has lab appointments, making an appointment offers convenience and a faster lab experience for your child.
Some of our DSA Lab locations have pediatric or infant draw rooms that offer a private space for you and your infant/child during their lab draw. If you are interested in using one of these rooms during your visit, feel free to advise staff at the following locations:
- Infant Draw Room: The Delta Fair Medical Offices‘ infant draw room allows infants up to 1 month old to be drawn using a heel stick
- Pediatric Draw Room: The following sites have pediatric draw rooms that allow infants and children up to 5 years old to be drawn in a separate space:
