Gotta know your numbers! Nothing is more important than your health. If you are generally healthy you do your annual physicals. If you have a chronic condition you regularly consult with your doctor. Right?
What is the first thing your doctor does? Talks to you and asks generic “How are you doing” questions. What’s next? The doctor needs to order some lab tests! In over 70% of cases your doc is clueless without test results.
A Wide Range of Tests
LabFlorida offers most of the diagnostic tests available in the U.S. Your healthcare provider may or may not be aware of the more comprehensive tests that might give him/her better numbers to make the diagnosis and offer a course of treatment. You may have read about a certain test on our website. Ask your doctor about it!
If he/she thinks it’s a good idea for you to have that test done, you will get a test order (requisition or prescription) to take to a lab. The requisition form may be on a form with LabCorp, Quest or Baycare logo. Actually, unless you have an HMO health plan, you can go to any lab, including LabFlorida.
