Lab Testing Options

Laboratory testing provides an additional piece of health information in conjunction with your history and physical examinations to your health puzzle. These tests give us more detailed information of what may be out of balance physiologically, in addition to being an excellent resource for health prevention. Often uncovering the root cause more quickly and giving a better direction for treatment.

During your initial appointment we will go over if any further testing is necessary and what the next steps of that look like.

Lab testing fees are not covered by OHIP & but may be covered by extended health insurance plans. Please contact your insurance provider.
