Quest Diagnostics - Drew blood that caused pain and bruising
I had blood draw at 1831 N. Belcher Rd. Clearwater,Fl. It was painful and my arm ached for several hours afterwards. Next day I had a blue bruise the size of a quarter surrounded by a large yellow patch. I've had blood drawn many times and this was the worst experience yet. I asked the lady what size of needle she was using and she dismissed it saying that this is the needle that they always use. I was surprised how fast she collected the samples which indicated to me that they use a large needle for their own convenience and to *** with patient comfort.
I will never use Quest clinics again unless someone from THAT clinic calls me and gives me an explanation as to why this blood sampling was so painful.
Thanks for caring,
