Conventional Diagnostic Laboratories I use
LabCorp– This is the primary lab I use for all patients.
In Washington State, if I order labs through LabCorp, it may be paid for by most insurances (excluding Kaiser, Medicare, and Medicaid).
I have also contracted with LabCorp to get a highly discounted rate for lab tests that they run, and I pass that savings on to you. It is usually more than 50% discount.
Quest Diagnostics– I can order through Quest if you prefer for insurance or other reasons.
I do not have lower contracted rates with Quest Diagnostic Labs for cash pay labs.
Cologuard –This as a good, at-home screening tool for colon cancer. I will order these for patients. Your insurance usually covers this.
Specialty Diagnostic Laboratories I use
Doctors Data – Stool Tests, including testing for parasites, bacterial, virus, fungal infections, digestive analysis. Also, SIBO testing
Labrix – (now part of Doctor’s Data) Wider variety of hormone testing, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and other androgens, adrenal, pituitary, melatonin, thyroid
Genova Diagnostics – Stool tests, including testing for parasites, bacterial, fungal, or viral intestinal infections, hormone testing, nutrient testing, digestive analysis and more
Dutch Testing– Precision Analytical – Hormones (men, women, sleep, adrenal), hormone metabolites, rhythm of hormones throughout the month
Great Plains Laboratory– metabolic, mitochondrial, and environmental factors in chronic illnesses
Common imaging I order for early detection, diagnostic or to help guide prevention includes:
DEXA – for bone density – women and men
Cardiac Calcification CT Score– a very quick CT test of your heart vasculature to look for plaques. Insurance does not usually cover this, but there are a number of radiology places that will offer this for a very reasonable cost.
Mammograms – primarily women for early detection.
I may order other imaging, but on an individual and situational basis.
Please note, my ability to order imaging depends upon your geographic area.
