What are my responsibilities as a patient?
As part of Medicare’s new model, they have developed a series of “Quality Measures” that are a combination of screening tests, immunizations, and evaluations. We are required to have you complete these to show Medicare we are taking care of you in the best way possible to help prevent you from becoming ill or having flareups of your current illnesses. As a Medicare beneficiary they are expecting you to take full advantage of these measures to do your part to help contain the ever-growing costs of caring for our aging populations. As a patient of McGill Family Practice; we expect you to fully cooperate with the screening tests, immunizations, and evaluations. Refusal to participate fully in these Medicare directed requirements could result in a situation where McGill Family Practice would no longer be able to provide you with medical services. Ask us for your Medicare Passport today.
Note: Currently, MFP is no longer accepting new Medicare/Medicaid patients. The only exceptions are current MFP patients that become of age or circumstances have dictated that they become Medicare /Medicaid patients.

Lab testing is often part of a routine checkup to look for changes in your health. They also help to diagnose medical conditions, plan or evaluate treatments, and monitor diseases. So, it is very important that you come prepared for your lab to receive the best possible results.
The majority of the time we will take the lab sample here in the office and send the material out for testing at a laboratory facility. On the average we should have the results back within 24 to 36 hours.
When setting up your appointment, the doctor’s office will tell you if you need to prepare yourself for your lab visit. You may be requested to bring a sample with you, be prepared to give a sample, fast the night before.
- Fasting – as a standard you will need to abstain from food and liquids (8 to 12 hours) the night before your appointment.
- Providing a sample – be prepared to give a urine sample prior to coming to your appointment. During the check in process, you will be given a cup to provide the sample in.
