- Stay Healthy
Tests can identify risk factors of disease-important information that can help you and your doctor target
- Detect disease early
Some diseases develop over time and produce no symptoms. Testing can help you
identify these serious conditions early. In general, the longer a medical condition
remains undetected and undiagnosed, the more difficult the
treatment and the less chance for success.
- Clarify family history
Lab tests can confirm or rule out inherited conditions and if present, lab monitoring can guide corrective therapy.
- Participate in your healthcare
Arriving at your doctor's office with test results in hand and an understanding of those results will save
time and allow for a more in-depth discussion of specific concerns.
- Obtain Peace of mind
"Normal" test results are significant. Your tests can help establish your "baseline" for future monitoring
and to give you general information about your health. In addition, if you have made lifestyle changes to
improve your health, you will want to know if your efforts have been successful!
- Maintain Privacy - no one else will see your test results!
We take your right to privacy very seriously. Unless we are required by law to release results to someone else (as in the case of some communicable diseases that have to be reported to the state department of health), only Private MD Lab Services, our laboratory's professional staff and you will see your results.
- Save money on insurance premiums
Prior to having blood tests related to insurance applications, verify that your laboratory profile is in the
optimal ranges-if suboptimal, correct abnormalities like cholesterol, triglycerides or glucose prior to submission
of official samples.
- Maintain an excellent health profile
Unfortunately, lab tests ordered by your physician become part of your permanent medical record and you may
be forced to disclose it in certain circumstances-change in job, application for life, health and disability
insurance and for other important life events. If known, many lab markers for future health concerns can be
modified by simple lifestyle changes. Once optimized, your lab profile can become an aid instead of a hindrance
in your permanent medical record.
