Why Order Laboratory Tests?

Most of the time physicians are able to diagnose a patient’s problem through physical examination and a thorough patient history. These are the framework for evaluating a condition or illness. However, there are times when a physician cannot always tell exactly what’s going on and needs the results of laboratory tests to aid in his or her diagnosis and treatment.

Ordering the right laboratory test will assist your physician in making a diagnosis or ruling out the possibility of a condition or illness. The results of the laboratory test(s) become an important part of the information needed by your physician when prescribing treatment.

In addition to the pages listed at the right here are some Internet links to helpful and informative websites that can provide information about the various tests your physician may order for you.
