Oodle $aves


Today I met with representatives from Interpath laboratory. The only independent lab left in this area. It's family-owned and operates out of Pendelton, OR. They provided me with pricing for labs and we got started on setting up for Oodle's opening. When I got their special pricing for Direct Primary Care it was everything I had hoped for!

Here are some examples:

CBC (completed blood count) -- $3.25

CMP (comprehensive metabolic panel) -- $3.44

TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) -- $4.50

Estradiol -- $8

Testosterone -- $8

I challenge my readers who have had blood drawn at their doctor's offices to look at their bills. See what the institution charged your insurance. Then compare to these numbers. Then breathe slowly into a paper bag. There, there... It's going to be okay... DPC will save the day!

Dr. Eaman's Web Search Tips

#1 

Chose websites that end in .gov or .edu first and .org second (MayoClinic.org is a good one). Websites like mine that end in .com are generally just purchased webspace, but an educational organization or governmental organization would likely have more trustworthy & honest information and not just some random person's opinion.

#2

Don't trust news sources for your health information. Check their sources. Oftentimes the media will blow a small irrelevant thing out of proportion to make a good story sell. Go to the original site.

#3

Feel free to crowd source but always remember: everyone is an expert in their own experience, not yours. So when Aunt Tilly says coconut oil cured her psoriasis take it with a little grain of salt.
