Health Screening FAQs

Individuals cannot order tests themselves, due to regulatory requirements, but if you are interested in having a specific laboratory test performed, please ask your healthcare provider if the test is appropriate for you, and if he/she can order the test(s) for you. To facilitate your discussion, it might be helpful to bring your healthcare provider a printed copy of the brochure or page from our website where you learned about the test.
Our clinical laboratory offers tests covering a broad range of disciplines which includes biochemistry, hematology, immunology, serology, and stool and urine analysis. The most frequently requested of these tests include blood biochemistry analyses, urine and stool analyses, complete blood counts, thyroid tests, tumor markers, tests for sexually-transmitted diseases, and hepatitis serology tests.
Depending on the complexity of the tests, results may be sent to your doctor the day after your specimen is submitted for testing, or it could take several days to complete the tests and send the results to your doctor. You should contact your doctor's office if you have any question about the availability of test results.
