Doctor doing research and taking notes at a desk

Introduction to Diagnostic Testing

We contract with various labs for assessments at the most competitive flat cash-pay rates—no surprise costs. We manage the order, receiving, reporting results, and all the other moving parts for you.

Once established as a patient at nuHealth (nu), patients can order whatever labs they want, whenever they want, without needing a doctor’s approval. They request the lab, and Dr. Neale creates a lab order. Results are uploaded to the patient portal as they arrive and are available for patient review immediately upon upload. Or, you and Dr. Neale can determine which labs are essential and worth your investment of time, hope, energy, effort, interest, and money.

Why Diagnostics?

Without data, your doctor makes clinical assessments based only on historical subjective reports and physical exams. Many people have been living with illness for so long that they normalize their disease making the assessment more challenging. That is sad. Suffering when there is obvious, safe, affordable, and effective treatment seems senseless.

How They Benefit You

Having even baseline diagnostic data can accelerate the healing process by targeting treatment. Additionally, having follow-up data to compare to the baseline data helps your doctor understand whether the treatment is effective and within safe and expected ranges.
