Laboratory Services

Clinical lab services at the UT Southwestern Monty and Tex Moncrief Medical Center at Fort Worth provide a quick and convenient way for patients to have lab work completed right after their clinical appointments.

Our phlebotomists are available to draw blood and collect urine. All lab specimens are picked up and sent for testing at either our Moncrief Cancer Institute or our main campus laboratory.

What to Expect

Your physician may order a lab test as part of your diagnosis or treatment. In the days leading up to your test, you may be required to follow specific instructions, such as fasting or avoiding medications. Please talk to your physician or nurse to find out how to prepare for your test.

We will send all lab results to your physician, who will follow up with you with next steps.

Preparing for Your Visit

On the day of your appointment, please allow time for registration. Moncrief Medical Center has welcome kiosks and staff located at the main entrance to help you check in.

Please bring your current insurance card, a method of payment (we accept checks or debit/credit cards only), and a complete list of your current medications and dosages (including over-the-counter medications, herbs, and vitamins).

Canceling an Appointment

If you need to cancel your appointment, please notify the clinic at least 24 hours in advance so that we can accommodate other patients waiting to schedule an appointment.
