Quest is the latest to offer lab testing without a doctor’s note

One big change that is underway in the health sector is the shift from doctors ordering lab tests on behalf of patients to so-called “consumers” ordering them on their own.

Now Quest, one of the largest diagnostic testing companies, is experimenting with direct-to-consumer lab tests in two states: Colorado and Missouri.
