Direct Access Laboratory Testing

Direct access testing allows you to choose the laboratory tests you would like to have performed with convenient walk-in hours. With this useful health data, you can prepare for a doctor’s visit, get a second opinion, save money, or have tests done that insurance may not pay for. You’ll also be able to more closely monitor certain conditions, like diabetes, with direct access testing. Our menu of available lab tests is designed to provide you with the information you need to be in control of your health.

Direct access testing is available for adults 18 years and older. Payment (cash, check, or credit/debit card) is required at the time of testing as insurance will not be billed. You do not need an order from a physician to have any direct access tests performed. If there is any need for follow up with a physician to discuss your results, we would be glad to set up an appointment for you.
