We offer a variety of laboratory testing services, nationally, to healthcare professionals, individuals, employers, and government agencies. Each service meets a unique need and each is accessed in a different way:
Laboratory Tests ordered by Healthcare Professionals — Most of the laboratory testing services we perform are for healthcare professionals. These laboratory testing services may be covered by insurance. If you are interested in having a specific laboratory test performed, please ask your healthcare provider if the laboratory test is appropriate for you, and if he/she can order the laboratory test(s) for you.
Can I request my own laboratory tests?
Yes, you can order your own laboratory tests. We would want you to understand the tests that are required and which may be needed so please don't hesitate to call us and ask to speak with a doctor to answer your queries.
