Express Lab

You no longer have to go to the doctor first, if you want to learn more about your cholesterol. At Express Lab in Lufkin, you can get these tests done at a very low price, maybe even on special.

Lesia Carter, an outreach coordinator, said, "It's $15 to get your cholesterol checked until the end of the month, then it's $25. You can get a coronary risk test for $90, it tells about your kidneys, and liver."

Once the blood is drawn, and logged in, it is sent across the street to memorial hospital, where the lab work takes place. You can get your information the next day, and you can even get it mailed to you.

Carter said, "It's a good service for people who don't have insurance, the cost is so much lower."

Cholesterol tests are not the only services available at the lab. There are about 25 other tests to choose from, and they have convenient hours.

The lab has only been open about three weeks. More and more patients are coming in every day, looking for an economical way to monitor their health, without visiting the doctor.

The lab is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
