Offered at Both Locations

The laboratory at Edina Family Physicians is CLIA certified and COLA inspected.

Our highly qualified laboratory staff are experienced, friendly and compassionate to all individual needs. Both of our locations offer moderate complexity testing.  If you require more complex or specialized testing, we use LAB CORPS as our reference laboratory.

Laboratory available daily from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM please call 952-925-2200 to schedule your appointment. A physician's order is required for all testing. Patients can wait comfortably in our new lab waiting area which is equipped with plenty of seating, flat screen television, and updated reading material.

Several of the routine tests ordered by our physicians require patients to be "fasting". If you are fasting, please remember nothing to eat or drink except water or black coffee for 12 hours prior to your sample being taken. Our technicians are often able to draw samples for fasting patients prior to your physical exams for your convenience.

Some of the tests that require fasting are:

Lipid Panel (HDL, LDL and Triglycerides)
Glucose (Blood Sugar)
Complete Metabolic Panel
Our friendly laboratory staff understands the importance of obtaining fast results for any tests that may be ordered by your physician. They work very hard to have their in-house testing completed as quickly as possible. We believe the turn-around time with our reference laboratory is also very fast - in most cases within two days.


Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN)

This form may be provided to you for signature prior to your laboratory tests being performed. Medicare, Medical Assistance, and other insurance plans may not pay for the tests your physician needs to have completed. Whether your insurance will cover the test is not an indication of whether the test is necessary or not. Your physician may request certain testing to monitor your medications or to help diagnose your condition.

The purpose of the ABN form is to help you make in informed choice about whether or not you want to receive a laboratory test -- knowing that you may have to pay for the test yourself. Your signed ABN form will be scanned into your electronic medical record.

Please see our "Resources" section for a full copy of the ABN form.

PLEASE NOTE: Your insurance carrier may require a copay on laboratory only services. Please contact your carrier for more information.
