Tumwater Family Practice Laboratory provides a wide range of on-site laboratory services. We believe that running our own lab results in better quality care, convenience and cost efficiency for our patients. If you require lab services that TFPC Lab cannot provide, we have partnered with Quest Diagnostics to perform those more specialized tests. Quest Diagnostics also provides lab services here at our facility on both Saturday and Sunday.

South Sound Radiology provides on-site X-Ray services and accepts a number of insurance plans so you do not have to make an extra trip to receive care.

Telephone Calls and Rx Refills

Our trained staff will gladly answer your health, billing and other related questions. If you need to speak to your provider or nurse, or have an urgent problem, please inform the receptionist. Urgent calls will be connected immediately or returned as soon as possible. All other calls will be returned as your provider's or nurse's schedule allows.

We have voice mail so that you can leave a detailed message if the person you are trying to reach is unavailable. When we return to our stations we are immediately notified of waiting messages, and will return your call as soon as possible.

In most instances, we believe it is not in your best interest for us to prescribe medicines by phone. If you have not seen your provider for a year, you must do so to have a prescription refilled. Always contact your pharmacy for refills rather than calling the clinic. If needed, the pharmacy will contact us and the request will be processed within 48 hours. Please do not call the clinic before that time as the refill is in process.

Billing Procedures

To help keep the cost of treatment down, we ask that you pay for your visit at the time of service. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and the Discover Card are welcome. If you have a large bill or financial difficulties, our billing staff will assist you in making special arrangements.

If you have insurance, please be prepared to present your insurance identification card, billing information and pay your deductible or co-pay amounts at the time of service.

We will gladly bill any of the plans listed below for you. However, some plans may not be open to our new patients. Please call for details. If your plan is not listed below or if you have problems or questions about insurance matters, call us and we will try to help you in any way that we can.

We bill secondary insurances for our patients. If you have a secondary, please let the receptionist know at the time you check in and provide your insurance card.
