Opening hours and preparation
Laboratory tests at Hospital Ochoa are conducted between 8:00am and 1:00pm, Monday to Friday. No appointment is needed, only a doctor’s referral.
Depending on the test itself, the patient will need to follow their doctor’s instructions in order for the results to be reliable. For most blood tests patients will be asked to:
- Fast for 8 hours before the test.
- Avoid smoking and exercise.
- Not take any medication until after the test.
