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.

Dr. Christopher Meyer deals in two worlds?the cosmetic and the medical?and he draws from both when treating problem veins. He used to become frustrated when he heard that people with varicose and spider veins were having difficulty finding treatment, as many caregivers deemed the problem a purely aesthetic one. So he took up work at Florida Vein Care Specialists, where he now administers treatments such as VenaCure EVLT, a laser-based procedure, to eradicate veins in the interest of his clients' health and confidence. The noninvasive treatment sends laser energy through a small fiber that heats and seals off the vein. Each session takes about 30 minutes, and requires no downtime for the patient, who can walk around immediately after the appointment.
