Can you request blood work be done?

Recommended Posts

I got laid off but had just recently picked up my supply of accutane, so I still have enough to last me a couple months. I just want to get my blood work done to make sure my liver is OK. I don't got insurance anymore, but do labs lets you order your own blood work or do I have to have my doc order it? I really dont wanna see him just for an order cause thats more $$$ I gotta pay now.

Labs don't usually let you get your own blood work done unless it's set up/prescribed by a doctor. You might be able to call your derm's office and ask if a request can be sent to the lab or see if you can pick it up without having a consultation. You could explain your financial situation to see if your doctor will work with you on this. Hopefully, he or she will because your health is important.
