They say there's waits etc. at the labs around here but I haven't found that so at least for walk in.
The longest I've had to wait in a line up and then had the tests done has been about half an hr. And the results are back at my drs within 24 hrs. That's 3 times within the last 2 1/2 weeks at the lab in the article. Today when I walked by it, twice, on my way to and from my drs. for the results of the last set of tests there was no line up.
The lines at walk-in labs for non-urgent tests can be long and booking an appointment is taking weeks
