Notice on New York State Collections

Collections performed within the state of New York are to be done in compliance with New York State Department of Health regulations. It is the collector’s responsibility to be knowledgable of the New York regulations and to be in accordance with them.

Patients must have a written request from a physician or other authorized official (such as courts, immigration departments, US embassies and social services) prior to collection. DDC requests a faxed copy of the referral prior to scheduling the collection appointment and instructs the patients to take the referral to the appointment. If the client has forgotten the referral, contact DDC for a faxed copy before proceeding with the sample collection.
