Do you require an appointment for lab testing?
We do request that you make an appointment for lab testing. Remember to take your medications, except diabetes medication.
Do I need to fast for lab tests?
Complete lab testing done in reference labs require that you fast overnight so that we can get a more accurate result. If you are diabetic, it is best to fast before your visit since we frequently need to test your glucose, cholesterol and a1c.
What about flu season and flu vaccines?
Locally, flu season begins in October. The CDC recommends an annual vaccine, which is usually available in October. You may get your flu vaccine with us or at your local pharmacy.
When can I get my lab results?
Test performed in the office are available within 15 to 30 minutes. The reference labs send us your results in 1 to 2 days after sample has been received, however some tests take longer. Our staff will communicate with you when to expect your test results. We can give you a copy of the results and/or give you the results at the office. X-ray, CT, ultrasound and MRI results require that you come to the office and discuss the results with the doctor or PA/NP.
Should I have the tests done before the visit?
If you are having an annual exam or a follow up of a chronic condition, it is best to have the appropriate test done one week before your visit. This will allow our staff to review the results with you at the time of our visit and give you recommendations and to answer your questions.
Why do I have to call the pharmacy first for my refills?
In order to make sure that we have the medications and doses correctly, we prefer that you first call your pharmacy to make this request. By receiving the request directly from the pharmacy, we can better communicate information, update your records and properly verify the information.
What hospital does Dr. Rocha recommend?
Dr. Rocha recommends Metropolitan Methodist Hospital downtown and Baptist Medical Center downtown. If you need to be admitted to the hospital, a hospitalist physician will need to be the one to admit you. When you are discharged from the hospital, your discharge information will be sent to Dr Rocha. You will also receive papers that you need to bring to our office in your post hospital visit, which should be within two weeks of discharge.
