At Lexington Medical
Center, we believe that all aspects of the healthcare experience
should be as convenient as possible. We fully understand how today's
busy lifestyles can make scheduling even the simplest of medical
tests very challenging, and that's why we've created Lab Tests On-Demand,
a patient requested laboratory testing service. 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 LMC laboratory physician specialists (Pathology
Associates of Lexington, P.A.) serve as the "ordering physician"
for the pre-approved test menu and will interpret test results when
appropriate. In most cases, test results are available by the next
weekday, allowing patients to rapidly accelerate their medical experience.
LMC's Clinical Pathologists are responsible for
the testing process and offer their own interpretive comments on
significantly abnormal results at no additional charge to patients.
They do not offer diagnoses or treatment advice based on these test
results. If requested, final test results are sent to the patient's
physician. Physician referrals are also offered by LMC's Physician
Please keep in mind that Lab Tests On-Demand testing
is strictly offered as an informational convenience to patients
and should never be used instead of a personal consultation from
a physician, or as a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis and
treatment. Furthermore, while we stand behind the accuracy of each
test result, a single laboratory test result cannot serve as a general
indication of a patient's overall health.
