Health Fair Labs

Monday, September 23, 2019 to Friday, September 27, 2019

You asked, we listened! West Holt Medical Services is now offering discounted health fair labs for one full week and every Friday throughout the year.

Health Fair Lab week will be held September 23-27 from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at West Holt Medical Services. 

Health Fair Lab screenings are recommended to evaluate overall health and monitor a wide range of disorders such as anemia, diabetes, high cholesterol, thyroid disorders, liver and kidney disease, prostate function.

The following lab tests will be offered at significantly reduced prices:

  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) - $25
  • Complete Blood Count (CBC) - $15
  • Hemoglobin A1C - $25
  • Lipid - $20
  • Prostatic Specific Antigen (PSA) - $25
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) - $25
  • Free T4 - $25
  • Vitamin D - $55
  • CBC, CMP, Lipid, TSH - $75
  • CBC, CMP, Lipid, PSA, TSH - $100 (Men’s Panel)
  • CBC, CMP, Lipid Panel - $50

Patients should fast 8-10 hours prior to CMP or lipid tests to receive the most accurate results. No appointment or provider orders are required. Lab work will not be filed through insurance, therefore only cash or check will be accepted as payment. Results will be mailed directly to the patient so they may share the results with their medical provider.

“Our Wellness Labs put the patient in the driver’s seat of their health. Many patients have high deductible insurance plans or their insurance only covers preventative lab work once a year. Now patients can assess and manage their health status on a regular basis without having to submit it through insurance,” shared Andrea Kerkman, Medical Laboratory Scientist at West Holt Medical Services.

Not sure which lab tests to get? 

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
Most people get a CMP as part of their yearly checkup to measure sugar (glucose) levels, electrolytes and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function. This test gives your provider a snapshot of your body’s chemistry and the way it is using energy (your metabolism).

Complete Blood Count (CBC)
A CBC is a blood test used to evaluate your overall health and detect a wide range of disorders, including anemia, infection and leukemia. This test measures several components and features of your blood, including red blood cells, which carry oxygen.

Hemoglobin A1C
This test provides an average glucose level over three months to screen for, help diagnose, and monitor diabetes and prediabetes.

Lipid Panel
This test measures the amount of cholesterol and fats called triglycerides in the blood. Cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood can clog arteries, making you more likely to develop heart disease. This test can allow you to make early lifestyle changes that lower cholesterol and triglycerides.

Prostatic Specific Antigen (PSA) 
This test is used primarily to screen for prostate cancer. It measures the amount of prostate-specific antigen in your blood. PSA is a protein produced by the prostate, a small gland that sits below the bladder in men.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
A TSH test is done to find out if your thyroid gland is working the way it should. It can tell you if it’s overactive (hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism). The test can also detect thyroid disorder before you have any symptoms. If untreated, a thyroid disorder can cause health problems.

Free T4
When thyroid hormone levels increase in the blood, the pituitary gland produces less TSH, and the thyroid produces less T4 and T3. Free thyroxine (free T4) tests are used to help evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid diseases, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, usually after discovering that the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level is abnormal.

Vitamin D
This test measures the amount of Vitamin D in your blood. Vitamin D is one of the few vitamins that our bodies can make on its own. But most people are deficient in this vitamin.
