Frequently Asked Questions

 You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

  • Are appointments to come into the clinic necessary?

No, however it is best to set up an appointment because we are frequently on site testing and away from the office.

  • If the sample is sent to the lab, how long do I have to wait to get results?

Usually in 19 hours. We are the fastest in the area.

  • Can I come in for a self test before I am tested by my employer?

Of course! We can perform an immunoassay test and give you the results in 2 minutes. The results are strictly confidential.

  • Do Adulterants (i.e. herb teas, shampoos, etc) really work?

Use at your own risk.  Most labs screen for substances put into urine samples.  Hair samples are washed at the lab before they are tested.  If you are caught cheating it is usually considered the same as not passing.
