Elite Lab Testing's network of accredited medical reference labs and service centers helps patients take charge of their health and wellness with tests performed at more than 1,700 LabCorp locations across the country. These lab tests—which don't require referrals or doctor visits—cover a lot of ground. For example, with a single blood draw, medical professionals can check for the IgE antibodies that may be causing allergic reactions to insect stings, foods, pollen, mold, and younger siblings. They might spend the rest of the day screening blood-sugar levels, scanning hormone levels and thyroid health, checking for heart attack risks, and lifting the hood on the liver and kidneys. Customers can even order the same tests their health care provider does for routine physicals. Elite Lab Testing also performs drug screens, and offers affordable pricing packages and wellness programs that equip the health-conscious community with useful tools for constructing a healthy lifestyle.

Serge and Ilona Barlam, graduates of the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, run Advanced Foot and Ankle Clinics, a full-service center with sophisticated diagnostics, diabetic care, and laser-therapy services.
