Care and Treatment

Labs and Prescriptions

Lab and test results

Abnormal results or those of an urgent nature will be communicated to you as soon as these results are available by phoning you directly or, if not readily available by phone, via a MyHealth message for those of you who have active accounts.

All normal lab and test results will be communicated to you as soon as we are able. For those of you who have active MyHealth accounts, results will be sent electronically within two business days of physicians' receiving these results. If you do not have an active MyHealth account, you should receive the results in the mail within two weeks of physicians' receiving these results.


Routine prescription renewals: Please contact your pharmacy directly and they will contact us through their electronic link or via fax.

New prescriptions: Contact your doctor/practice coordinator directly.

Please keep in mind that it takes up to three business days to fill prescriptions.

Stanford Family Medicine does not renew routine prescriptions or narcotic prescription after-hours. For routine prescription refills, please contact your pharmacy.

Emergency room visits outside clinic hours no longer require pre-authorization by your doctor, by California State Law. Make sure you inform your physician within 24 hours following your visit.

Be aware of your health plan limitations - unless you require 911 emergency transport, some health plans require you to obtain all after-hours emergency care at Stanford ER if you have a primary care doctor at Stanford.

A physician is on-call after hours to coordinate any emergency care needs which arise after-hours and can be reached at the 24 hour number: 650-498-9000.
