DiagnosticsforU bypasses the rigmarole of intrusive visits to the doctor's office with thorough and speedy health and hormone panels that test the body's trouble spots. The most popular tests check blood type, kidney function, or general heart health, though teenagers often test to see why their parents don?t understand them. The lab's speed?often offering a turnaround time of 24?48 hours?is rivaled only by its commitment to convenience. Orders can be placed confidentially by phone, and results are returned by mail, email, or fax and shared with a designated physician as desired.
