Otis A. Plunk, MD announces the nationwide accessibility of Private MD Lab Services in Spanish, which allows patients to request lab tests via a secure Web site without a doctor's order or referral. Once clients select and pay for tests, they receive an e-mail with the address of a Patient Service Center (lab) where they submit their specimens and usually get the results 24 to 48 hours later. A second e-mail notification is sent to the patient in either English or Spanish with a secure Web link where the results can be downloaded confidentially.
Lab tests available through Private MD Lab Services detect signs of a wide range of medical conditions including diabetes, prostate cancer, infectious diseases, kidney and liver conditions, gastrointestinal diseases, and STDs. Other tests target general wellness, heart health, cholesterol, musculoskeletal diseases and metabolism. Private MD Lab Services also provides tests for male-specific and female-specific conditions such as hormone levels.
Why go online? An uninsured client might want a specific test for a certain health concern without the added expense of consulting a physician. For example, an individual could request a urinalysis profile for less than $30.00, in order to screen for urinary bladder disease, kidney disease or diabetes. If results came back within the normal range and there were no abnormalities or deviations highlighted--visiting a physician would be an unnecessary additional expense.
Private MD Lab Services provides clients with answers to their health concerns -- in absolute confidence. No information will end up in an insurance company's database. Private MD Lab Services has achieved much success over the years and is now able to better serve the Spanish speaking community with the option of viewing the website, speaking with a representative, or receiving emails all in Spanish.
Because state and federal laws require licensed physicians to analyze the test data and provide the results, Dr. Plunk has invested in secure, user-friendly software in English and Spanish. That means more than 3,000 Patient Service Centers are online and ready to help patients take their health care back into their own hands.
