About Test Results

Why do physicians order laboratory tests?
Physicians order lab tests as part of a routine checkup to look for any changes in your health or to assist in the diagnosis of medical conditions and to monitor the progression of a disease. Recent estimates suggest that 70 percent of decisions regarding patient treatment are based on the lab test results.

How do I get my test results?
Fusion Diagnostics sends your lab results directly to your physician, who can best explain their significance to you. While we prefer to that you see your doctor for details, you may also request a copy of your lab results when you arrive for your lab test, by phone calling toll free at 1866-Fusion-Lab, or in person at the time of service.
Are safeguards present to protect the confidentiality of my test results?
Fusion Diagnostics values the privacy of your health information and is required by federal law to protect it. Our HIPPA Notice of Privacy Practices for Protecting Health Information explains the ways in which Fusion Diagnostics may use and disclose medical information by law.
How do I authorize someone to request my test results?
You can complete an authorization form that tells Fusion that you permit a specific individual (e.g. your spouse, your son, your friend) to request your test results. You may access an authorization form by calling 973-998-8189 or toll free 1866-Fusion-Lab.
