Unfortunately, certain insurances mandate lab work be done at reference labs such as QUEST and LABCORP, which we know can mean inconvenient travel out of town. However, patients CAN have their labs drawn here for a small draw fee of $5-$15 depending on your insurance plan. This small charge may be more convenient than driving out of town to these other labs. LBH then submits the physician order for lab work to the appropriate reference lab and a courier from the reference lab picks up the draws daily. Lab results will be sent directly to the ordering physician. This will not delay your results.
