*Due to normal lab processes, a result of “indeterminate” is possible. In these instances, the laboratory will re-run samples and/or reach out to the patient to recollect the sample. These situations may cause a delay in turn-around times.

*If you have already visited a Valley Medical and Wellness location and provided your sample(s) for testing, we cannot cancel your order or refund your payment. Testing will be completed and results will be available in your Valley Medical Laboratory patient portal account or will be sent to you via secure text messaging.
