Here’s what our users and reviewers have said about Lab Tests Online since it launched on the web in 2001:
“It is Friday afternoon and I received test results that I did not understand. I won't see my doctor until Monday afternoon. The information on this site helped ease my anxieties about the results. It was easy to understand and relevant to my needs.”
“My Doctor ordered many tests and I did not know what they were all for. Reading your descriptions made me feel secure and gave me a clue about what the Doctor was looking for or trying to rule out. Now he seems pretty smart!”
“My wife and I are RN’s. Your site is, excuse the pun, ‘bloody good.’”
