Online lab work ordering
on 8/29/18 8:07 am
How many of you use an online lab service to order your labs? And which one do you use? ImI looking to do mine the that way and then take the results to my regular doctor. I had my surgery in Mexico. Thanks

Have you talked to your PCP about ordering the lab work for you?

Yes, I have. He told me he could only order some of the tests, not all the ones that I need.
The last few years I've used WellnessFX to order and pay for labs,. They work in conjunction with Quest Diagnostics who handle the lab work and send results to your and the Doctors you request. They do need a doc's orders usually but will do lab work without. I just ask my PCP to write the orders for what she wants and to also add my own order to the lab request for me, never an issue.
Theyve been great to work with.
I know some people who go to an endocrinologist to get their lab work done. I am going to try the one through HEB to get my ferritin rechecked. They have specials a lot. https://www.ultalabtests.com/HEB/Shop/Index
