When requiring a blood draw for tests (@ Dorsey Search), I found the facility unusually cold, which contributed to my being a harder case than usual (tiny rolling veins, I'm a specific arm, specific needle). I sat under a vent that blew cold air directly on me. The technicians said yeah we KNOW, they wore JACKETS, sweats jacket, jeans jacket. But no one could raise the AC temperature. It took three technicians and three sticks to retrieve my blood; I was there over an hour freezing. They said they needed FIVE vials just to be sure; I begged them to remove one blood test and take four; not possible. I said so you will throw away those vials after all I've gone through if you don't get another vial? Yes, they said. I came home with two hematomas. Five days later, one is still large and purple. Finally, it was very important for me to get one of the results before the weekend; no problem I was told, if you log onto your account. Not so. The results were not available in 48 hours (Fri.) as promised. I got them today, the same day I got the mail copy. Needless to say, I don't plan to go back to this facility.
It is my bad experience in Lab corp. It's actually not about Elicott city but whole system. As according to the office staff I had to receive my blood report within 4/5 days. I believe them and went to meet doctor. she said the report is not received yet. So I call to lab corp. At first they said that there is no report. Later she said that you will get after two days. It means nothing was done. Exactly after 15 days they send my report to the doctor. Now how can I believe that the report is mine? I an really disappointed and I'll never go to Lab Corp for further health.
