People sometimes wonder why mobile phlebotomy is a necessary service in Arizona. After all, there are plenty of places to get your blood drawn in Arizona, so why would anyone need an at-home blood draw?
To illustrate why our services are so needed in this area, here is the story of a typical patient in Arizona (some details have been changed to protect patient privacy).
Janice is an elderly woman living in the Phoenix area. She has a history of blood clots and is now on an anticoagulant medication. The medication requires that she have her blood monitored regularly by her doctor to make sure it is working as it should.
Janice no longer drives and doesn’t have a reliable way to get to a laboratory on a weekly basis to get her blood drawn, so when she found out about VeniExpress’s at-home blood draw service, she was thrilled! Her doctor simply put in a service request for an at-home blood draw and VeniExpress called Janice to schedule her first in-home appointment.
When the VeniExpress mobile phlebotomist arrived at Janice’s Phoenix condo for her first appointment, Janice was impressed with how friendly and professional the phlebotomist was. Janice was immediately put at ease. The blood draw was over in a matter of minutes, and her blood sample was delivered to the local lab that same afternoon for processing.
One of the reasons Janice and her doctor chose to go with VeniExpress for at-home blood draws was because of VeniExpress’s commitment to maintaining specimen integrity. Every phlebotomist’s vehicle is equipped with a centrifuge, and every specimen is handled with great care to ensure accurate test results. Accurate results are very important for Janice’s condition. Her doctor needs to know if her blood-thinning medication is working to prevent future blood clots, or if her medication needs to be adjusted. In other words, the results of Janice’s weekly blood tests help her doctor know how to best treat her condition and keep her healthy.
Now, Janice has a standing appointment for her weekly at-home blood draw. She has had the same phlebotomist come to her home for several months now, and they’ve developed a friendly rapport. The phlebotomist is always on time and never keeps Janice waiting—unlike her local laboratory, which often has long wait times, as well as crowded waiting rooms.
Janice loves that VeniExpress’s billing process is simple and straightforward, and that the fees for the at-home service are reasonable. In fact, she wishes the billing for all her other medical services would be this simple. She also wishes she would have found VeniExpress sooner.
