A Note About Lab Screenings
By registering for these laboratory tests, you acknowledge the screening results provided are preliminary. Results could fail to detect abnormalities that might be found with more definitive screenings; or it might detect abnormalities that would be found normal with further testing. To confirm a medical condition, an examination by your personal healthcare provider is always recommended.
