• Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) - $28

A blood test that measures a protein that is only produced by the male prostate gland. Elevations of PSA may occur in men with prostate cancer or non-cancerous prostatic diseases. A normal PSA level does not entirely exclude the possibility of prostate cancer. Although high PSA values do not always indicate prostate cancer, all elevated values should be reported to your health care professional.

White Blood Cell Count, Red Blood Cell Count, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, Platelet Count, Indices, White Blood Count Differential


• A1C (for Diabetics-consult your physician) - $35

The diabetes screen consists of a glucose and hemoglobin A1c. The glucose provides a view of the body’s sugar management. The hemoglobin A1c provides a record of the average blood glucose levels over the last 3 months.

Hemoglobin A1c measurements are effective in monitoring long-term glucose control in individuals with diabetes.

The lab report provides a blood glucose level and hemoglobin A1c, both with reference ranges.

If your glucose or hemoglobin A1c are above the reference range, this suggests you should contact your health care provider.

The American Diabetes Association recommends the use of screening tests to identify those who might benefit from additional testing. Repeated measurements of the glucose and other tests are needed to support a diagnosis of diabetes.


• Vitamin D Test (gives total Vitamin D, D2 & D3) - $45

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is made by the body after exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. Vitamin D can also be obtained by taking supplements and from eating certain foods.

What does Vitamin D do in the body?
Vitamin D helps maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorous. It aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones. Vitamin D also modulates neuromuscular, immune and other cellular functions.

What does Vitamin D testing assess?
Vitamin D tests generally assess the total volume of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD), which is the form of Vitamin D circulating in the blood. Vitamin D tests may also provide information on the levels of Vitamin D2 and D3, which comprise total Vitamin D levels.

Why do physicians test for Vitamin D?
A physician generally will order a test to determine the level of Vitamin D in a patient's body. A physician would typically evaluate a test result in connection with several other factors affecting a patient's health, such as medical history, gender and age.
