I've read the stickies and have not found an answer to this noob question, so please bare with me.
How do I go about getting labs done if I do not have a primary care physician in my city? In my last city I went to my GP with my concerns (about 2 years ago) and asked for a full hormone panel. What he ordered was total testosterone and very basic bloodworkâ?¦ nothing useful. I want to avoid that happening again.
I recently called an anti-aging doc who offered a comprehensive panel, but the cost for the initial panel and first consultation would be $850 and I was told that insurance would be unlikely to pay for any of it. Should I just go to an endocrinologist with a list of the tests I want done? Whats my first step here.
I'm in Chicago if anyone has any specific recommendations. Thanks in advance.
