Women’s Health Laboratory Services
There are costs associated with annual physicals, Pap tests, surgical procedures, and laboratory testing. Please ask your provider to explain these costs. We send Pap test results to you in HealthWeb as secure messages 1-2 weeks after your test. If Pap test results are abnormal, your provider will call you as soon as the Student Health Center receives the report. Your provider will ask you to schedule an appointment to review your results. Please provide the Student Health Center with your current address and phone number so that we can expedite sending reports to you.
