I’m posting on an old thread because I don’t think a new one is necessary for my comments.
I’ve used a few online labs.
Very professional, has both telephone contact and chat online. Secure results password protected. MOST EXPENSIVE. I used them only when I didn’t know better.
Free Testosterone: $113.00
Very professional, has both a telephone contact and chat online. I used their chat online numerous times and they were available during normal business hours each time. Your results are stored online in a secure area accessed by your username and password. They give you a choice of Labcorp or Quest, and identify prices and tests from each company.
Free Testosterone: $48.00
discountedlabs was the cheapest (in general) of all labs I reviewed. However, they are the most “hobby” based business. In other words, there are no phone numbers listed, and no online chat option available. Contact is by email only – and I had to email every day to get them to release the partial results. They also take the longest to deliver results. On the site it shows “3-5 days” for results, including results that LabCorp posts within 24 hours. They also show “7-14 days” for sensitive Estradiol results! And they really did take the longest of all three labs to return results.
Free Testosterone: $30.45
What sets discountedlabs apart is the “Hormone and Wellness Panel”. For $261.45, it includes:
CBC (includes immune cells, red blood cells and hematocrit)
CMP-14 (Includes kidney and liver function, glucose and electrolytes)
Lipid Panel (LDL, HDL, Triglycerides)
Testosterone free and total (LC/MS assay with no upper limit)
Estradiol, Sensitive (LC/MS assay)
DHEA-sulfate (Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate)
TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
Free T3 (Free Triiodothyronine )
PSA (Prostatic Specific Antigen)
LH (Luteinizing Hormone)
FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone)
The same tests at walkinlabs were over $440. I wrote to walkinlab and included my actual labcorp test result and suggested they build this panel and add shbg. They “thanked” me and apologized for not having a test panel that fit my needs. In other words, “we don’t give a shit. Take it or leave it”.
And so I did. Even though I would prefer to do business with walkinlab, I have no choice but to use the panel at discountedlabs. I tried - but I can’t beat the price.
