Are you like me who worry about visiting the doctor and fearing all the costs, the time and the effort that would go with the doctor’s visit?
Are you like me who has a family curse of allergies and would endure all the sniffing and the sneezing and those awful skin rashes hoping that i t is just a seasonal thing?
Are you feeling that fatigue and the stress from your job and worried about what they can do to your body and your health?
Are you in need of a pregnancy test, concerned about exposure to STDs or a complete female health checkup and want a discreet and less expensive way to be checked?
Busy Americans are finding new ways to be frugal, but at the same time there is more emphasis than ever on preventive medicine. However, it can also be costly to do all the testing necessary to properly diagnose health issues before they become serious problems.
The SmartGlobalHealth.org estimates that by 2030, the number of people with Diabetes (currently more than 180 million worldwide) will double to 366 million. Cancer incidence increased globally between 1990 and 2000 and is projected to increase further by 50%, to more than 15 million new cancer patients by 2025.
Traditional lab testing can be a very time consuming and costly process (source: debt.org) It requires a visit to a doctor, the doctor ordering specific tests, patients then taking those orders to a lab facility to be completed, and then patients scheduling another follow-up visit with their doctor to get the lab results.
Thankfully, there is an alternative way to save on time and cost.
Personalabs provides consumers with an improved, alternative way to get those results, while saving money and time.
Personalabs management service allows patients to go their website (Personalabs.com), find the test they are interested in (more than 300 tests available), place their order and Personalabs will send them a doctor’s order within 60 seconds. Questions or concerns? No problem. There are Customer Care Specialists standing-by to help.
Personalabs has doctors registered in 50 states. You print the confirmation order and take that to one of the 1,700 lab facilities located nationwide. The lab takes your sample (whether it’s blood, urine, stool or semen) and you can leave knowing that you’ve completed your part and Personalabs has you covered the rest of the way! The lab tests your sample and within 24-48 hours (some tests are more extensive and may take up to 7-10 days), you will receive an e-mail advising that your results are ready. You then sign into our secure Personalabs Patient Portal to view your results.

Personalabs accepts all major credit cards, PayPal (including Buy Now, Pay Later), Amazon Checkout, FSA cards and all pre-paid gift cards.
They currently do not accept any form of health insurance as their blood test prices are the lowest available on the market. Personalabs saves you money and is cheaper than the actual premium you would pay to your insurance provider. We do, however, offer the ability to provide you with an insurance admissible receipt. You can use that to claim back funds from your insurance company.
What are you waiting for? Take an active role in your healthcare. Get the blood tests you need and results quickly for much less than traditional testing.
