Testing On The Weekend?


Recommended Posts

Hello! Well, my appt at the Cleveland Clinic is quickly approaching and I am very thankful! I have called the specialist's office to find out how much time I should expect to be at the Cleveland Clinic. Okay, call me silly but I was kinda surprised when they told me they usually advise their patients to plan on 2-3 days of testing. My appt is late in the day on Friday so I'm not sure how much testing they will fit in. Unbelievably, the receptionist couldn't tell me if they do testing on the weekend. Does anyone here know? Has anyone had testing on the weekend? I don't mind heading back to Cleveland but I'm a planner. <_<

Thanks.

I don't think they do. I was there in August. So that may mean planning to stay over the weekend and into the next week, depending on what else they schedule you for. But I guess they can't tell you ahead of time, as they plan the tests depending on your response to the ttt. I had the ttt on the first day, and then they scheduled more testing the next day. I also needed to be seen by another department, which is always harder to coordinate.

They'll probably decide what tests are appropriate at your fri appt, then you'll have to do the testing when those places are open, which is likely mon/tue/wed.

Just thought I should post an update after I went to the appt in case anyone else ever had the same question. No, they do not do testing on the weekend. I have to go back in about a week for additional testing. Then, I'll meet with the Dr. about a month later after the results come in. Additionally, they only do biopsies on Mondays. (That's why I have to wait a week.)
