We facilitate insurance billing for diagnostic testing where possible.  Many labs or tests are not covered by insurance.  For patients paying “out-of-pocket” we can get significant discounts on routine labs.  We do not mark up our lab pricing and simply charge for a blood draw and/or handling fee.

Some of the specialized diagnostic labs we use include Genova Diagnostics, Doctor’s Data, Immunolabs, Cyrex, ELISA/ACT Technologies, 23andme, Spectracell, Pharmasan, iGenex, RealTime Laboratories, Caris Molecular Intelligence and Research Genetic Cancer Center.
