Alpha Medical Laboratory is an independent, highly complex medical laboratory located in Tulsa, OK. We have been established since 2017 specializing in processing laboratory specimens for Post Acute Care Providers and Care Teams.
Direct access testing (DAT) allows individuals to order their own medical tests directly from a clinical laboratory, without the need for a physician’s lab order. DAT is also known as patient-authorized testing or direct-to-consumer testing.
Patients who wish to have a lab test completed without a doctor’s referral need to conduct an online search for their desired test and locate a facility that offers that test in their area. The patient will usually pay for the lab test upfront, and the results will be communicated directly to them within a few hours to days via email or phone call.
