Customer Question
Just a quick question...

Just a quick question: I am reading that alcohol cannot be detected after a few hours. If someone was drinking and was somewhat inebriated last night. Would a pee test detect it?

Doctor's Assistant: Is there an upcoming drug test scheduled? What kind of samples are being tested?

My wife is back from rehab. I sensed she was drinking last night and she has offered to get a pee test to prove otherwise.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No....just that my wife has been in rehab and I am suspicious of her conduct last night

That is right but that is only for about 2 to 5 hours after that it starts to show up in urine and can be tested positive.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
