Frequently Asked Questions
What types of lab services do you provide?
We provide services for Blood, Urine, Saliva, Fecal matter, Hair and Breath Urea analysis. Further more we will provide you with functional ranges as well as lab ranges and help you understand what your lab results mean.
I feel healthy, why should I get tested?
A serious medical condition such as heart disease, prostate cancer, or diabetes can exist without noticeable symptoms for up to two years. Early detection is your best defense. A simple blood test can indicate what is happening to assist you in reversal of potential problem areas, and establish a baseline of your normal ranges for which future tests can be monitored.
Do I need to see my doctor to get tested?
Consumers are realizing that they need to take control of their own health, and direct-to-consumer testing programs allow greater participation in one's own health care. We refer to the same labs that physicians and hospitals use, which are CLIA-certified and regulated by the appropriate governmental agencies.
Do I need an appointment?
An appointment is usually not required at most Patient Service Centers. The requisition form we send to you will indicate if it is necessary.
Should I fast before the blood draw?
It depends on the test you are taking. It is recommended that you avoid food and liquids for a minimum of 8 hours when testing for Glucose, Cholesterol, and Triglycerides. Water or black coffee are permitted during your fast.
When will I receive the results?
You can expect to receive the results within 72 hours after your blood is drawn for serum tests. Results from the specialty labs on hair, saliva, urine, and stool may take a week or longer.
Are the results confidential?
Absolutely. We respect your privacy and maintain confidentiality. You are the only one who receives the results unless you specifically direct us otherwise, with a signed HIPAA release.
Will I be able to understand the results?
Yes. All test results include the normal reference ranges, and abnormalities indicated. We recommend you seek a healthcare provider to discuss results out side normal ranges.
How reliable are the results?
We use the leading national laboratories, which are fully accredited, licensed Medical Reference Labs. These are the same labs your physician uses.
What if I receive an abnormal result?
Abnormalities should be considered an early warning, but do not necessarily mean you have an illness or disease. We strongly recommend you discuss the results with your Doctor for evaluation, further testing, and diagnosis.
What is a patient service center?
Certified laboratories have Patient Service Centers throughout the United States where patients have their blood drawn. These are staffed by licensed Phlebotomist and the same facilities referred to by Doctors.
Is there a location near me?
Holistic Healing Health uses only nationwide CLIA-certified Medical Reference Laboratories with Patient Service Centers close to where you live or work for the blood draw. Special arrangements can be made for an area without a facility.
What is the testing procedure?
You may order by phone or online. We then refer you to the laboratory with the Patient Service Center most convenient to home or office, where the blood is drawn by a certified Phlebotomist. The results are received by our office generally within 72 hours and e-mailed confidentially to you.
