The most common one has been a few extra tests referred by Doctors, results that are wrong and have set us on the wrong course of treatment. Only to find later that none of this was needed. In one case I found the Dr. was receiving commission for the path lab work as well as medicines purchased by me.
These days I am only using brand name labs or hospital labs but still one is never sure.
What are the things one must look out for with the Doctor and Pathlabs so they don't fall into such traps. Also how do good labs ensure sample integrity when they collect from home? more
