Patient Ordered Lab Tests

Arizona law allows you to order laboratory testing from a licensed clinical laboratory without your doctor's request. This is referred to as direct access testing and Sonora Quest Laboratories offers a menu of patient ordered lab tests through our My Lab ReQuest™ offering.

Sonora Quest Laboratories believes that it is vitally important that consumers have the most accurate and up-to-date information needed to proactively manage their health and make educated decisions. While we believe the management of personal health is most effective when it involves a partnership with a health care provider, we can help you take a more active role in your health with a menu of select tests that you may request without a doctor's order.

In the video below, Joan Jordan, a Sonora Quest Laboratories patient, discusses her experience with My Lab ReQuest™ and the ways in which it empowered her family to take a more proactive stance on its health and to make more educated healthcare decisions.

Important Notes

  • Only you will receive the test results - Sonora Quest Laboratories will share the test results as required by law and with your physician or other providers only in critical or emergent situations
  • Certain patient test results are required by Arizona Administrative Code (R9-4-302 and 404.H. and R9-6-204) to be reported to the Arizona Department of Health Services for public health reasons. If this occurs a local or state public health investigator may contact you for additional information or to ensure proper treatment.
  • You must be at least 18 years old to request your own laboratory tests or to request laboratory tests on a minor (minor must provide consent on certain tests as required by law)
  • Because a doctor has not ordered these tests, per state law, Sonora Quest Laboratories will not submit to insurance (including Medicare and Medicaid) for payment. Full payment is due at time of service unless you order and prepay online.
  • It is solely your responsibility to promptly discuss all laboratory test results with a physician - neither Sonora Quest Laboratories nor its Medical Director will provide interpretation, counseling, consultation, or care recommendations on the basis of any laboratory results provided to you. Please see the Resources section below for additional information.
