Courtesy Labs at Island Primary Care – Orcas

Island Primary Care – Orcas is happy to facilitate lab orders for an outside provider; however, we are not a walk-in lab. There are several items to note when we process labs from providers outside of Island Health.

  • Please plan ahead for courtesy labs from your specialists by allowing one to two weeks for scheduling and processing.
  • A current order must be brought in or faxed to our office at 360.466.6139 for phlebotomist review before an appointment can be scheduled and at least one week before the results are needed. There are some uncommon orders we may not be able to fulfill due to supply availability or special processing.
  • All lab appointments are scheduled from 9 a.m.–2:30 p.m. The specimens are transported to the Island Health laboratory either by plane or by ferry each afternoon.
  • For courtesy labs, we function as a “draw facility” only; however, the results will appear in your Island Health patient portal.
  • Test results that are ordered by an outside provider will also be communicated to the patient by the outside provider as they are in charge of the information in your care plan. The ordering provider, or their staff, are responsible for communicating the results of the tests ordered for you, not Island Primary Care – Orcas.
  • Lab result times vary, each test requires different amounts of time to process. At a minimum, most results will take 12 to 24 hours to process although there are some exceptions. For example, a COVID tests takes a few hours to process and upload once received by the Island Health lab, but a urine culture will need several days to show bacteria growth, appearing in the patient portal several days after the COVID results.
