There is no lab onsite at Essential Health. Laboratory testing may be done at a laboratory near your home.

There are “regular tests” and specialty tests. “Regular tests” are those that can be done at any lab, while “specialty tests” are done by special laboratories, and usually are done using kits. These will be provided to you either during your appointment, or shipped directly to your home. These have prepaid mailing envelopes enclosed for the mailing of the samples.

Most “regular lab tests” are covered by insurance. In addition, many of the specialty labs are at least partially covered by insurance. This will be reviewed with you at the time of your appointment, when Dr. Fisch reviews your treatment plan. You do not need to have your primary care physician “re-order” the labs- generally this does NOT affect insurance coverage.
