Patient-Requested Testing & Results
Lab Tests On-Demand allows patients to order laboratory tests without going through the full processing time usually associated with a physician office, emergency department or hospital appointment. Patients can choose from a menu of laboratory tests that are performed in one of Lexington Medical Center’s laboratories, under physician direction, with fully accredited, quality-controlled procedures.
The Lab On-Demand program is designed to help individuals who do not have health insurance/coverage obtain needed laboratory tests. This program is not recognized by any health insurance plan as meeting their requirements of a deductible.

These tests are offered as an informational convenience to patients and should never replace a personal consultation from a physician or as a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis and treatment. While we stand behind the accuracy of test results, a single laboratory test result cannot serve as a general indication of a patient’s overall health.
