Blood Draw Locations Close to Home

Need to have a blood sample taken for testing? Choose one of PIH Health’s convenient locations in the Whittier area. Services are provided by our experienced personnel (phlebotomists) to all age groups, from newborn to elderly.  You can walk in anytime; no appointment is needed. The lab is generally very busy during the first hour of opening so plan your visit accordingly. You must bring a lab slip (request) from your doctor for the draw.

Check with your doctor for instructions you need to follow—such as fasting (no eating or drinking)—before having your blood drawn. You’ll be more comfortable during the process if you wear loose-fitting or short-sleeved clothing.

Your test results will be sent directly to your doctor.
