Simple Question Needs Answers!

I have scheduled an appointment to start my process for accutane next week. I know that I will be approved because my dermatologist gave me the option, but I wanted some time to think about it. I understand that blood tests are done before and during the course of accutane. Is the initial test done at the dermatologists office, or by my regular doctor? I don't know if I should make an appointment to see my doctor before my derm appointment or not, and now it's the weekend so I can't call. Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated! I just wanted to get started ASAP!

My derm just orders a lab every month when I go to see her. Then like 2 or 3 days before I go and see her again (almost a month later) I drive myself to the lab to get everything done. I go through kaiser though, so I don't know if it's different there vs. other places.
