People who are new to the idea of mobile phlebotomy—where a phlebotomist comes to you for blood draws—sometimes wonder why this service is needed. After all, there are plenty of patient service centers in Arizona where people can get their blood drawn. If you live in an urban or suburban area, there’s probably a location within a few miles of your home.
Not everyone needs mobile phlebotomy service, but for those who do, it can be a game changer! Here are five types of people who can benefit from it:
Those Without Reliable Transportation
When you rely on others to get places, any errand can be a major undertaking. Even if there is a good shuttle service in your area or you have family or friends who are willing to take you to appointments, you are still at the mercy of their schedules. By using a mobile phlebotomy service, you don’t have to arrange to have someone pick you up (hopefully on time), take you to your appointment, and then take you back home. You simply have your blood drawn from home and save yourself a ton of hassle.
Those Who Have Busy Schedules
Whether you’re a CEO of a company or a stay-at-home mom with her hands full, going to a patient service center during the day is probably one of the last things you want to do with your valuable time. Instead of taking an hour or two to drive to the patient service center, wait in the waiting room, see the phlebotomist, and drive back to your home or office, you could just make an appointment and have the mobile phlebotomist come to where you are. You save the driving and waiting time and can instead devote that time to something more important.
Perhaps the people who benefit the most from mobile phlebotomy are those who are homebound. Going to a patient service center for a routine blood draw is simply not a viable option.
Those Who Are Scared of Having Their Blood Drawn
No one loves needles, but there are certain patients who are terrified of them. If this is you, and you find yourself needing to get your blood drawn, we can help! While we can’t make your fear go away, we can make the experience a little less scary by allowing you to stay in the comfort of your own home.
Those With Special Needs
There are many special circumstances that could prevent someone from being able to get their blood drawn in a typical manner. It could be that a person has a compromised immune system and doesn’t want to be exposed to people who may be sick, or someone with autism who may have a hard time waiting patiently to be seen, or an individual who just needs a little extra care when having his or her blood drawn. Whatever the case may be, our phlebotomists are happy to accommodate whatever special needs you or your loved one may have. If you need special accommodations, please let us know when you schedule your appointment with VeniExpress.
Of course, this isn’t an exhaustive list of the types of people who can benefit from using the services of a mobile phlebotomy company in Arizona. These are just examples of the types of patients we help every day. Many of our patients use our service simply for the convenience of it. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to help people shelter in place, while still allowing them to get their blood work done. Whatever your unique situation may be, we can help! We service many parts of Arizona, including Phoenix, Tucson, and the surrounding areas.
