ULTA WELLNESS

For over four years, Ulta Wellness has been making lab testing more affordable for the average patient. Within their network of laboratories, they are able to save their customers up to 80% off the regular self-pay costs typically charged. Additional savings are available each week and can be found under the Weekly Promotions heading in the Order Tests dropdown at the top of the page.

Compared with the competition, Ulta Wellness offers a terrific variety of tests: more than 1,000 in total. These can be purchased individually or as part of a package. Not sure where to begin? Choose the Get Started option under the Order Tests heading. You can choose an area of interest, such as Baseline Biomarkers or Menopause. You'll then be given a list of results to choose from; click the "Compare Panels" box (or scroll down) to see a side-by-side comparison of what specific tests are included in each set of tests.

We found Ulta Wellness' pricing to be very competitive with other providers. Their network is also comparable, so unless you live in a very remote area, you should have no trouble finding a lab to have your blood drawn. All of Ulta's tests do need to be drawn in a lab, and if you live in NJ, NY or RI, your state's laws prohibit you from using this service. This is due to the requirement that your own physician order any lab work, and not because of any restrictions on Ulta Wellness itself.

Although there weren't many customer reviews of their services, we were impressed by their A+ rating as an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau. More remarkable was the fact that, in the four years that Ulta Wellness has been BBB accredited, there haven't been any customer complaints registered against the business. That gives us reason to believe that they're doing a noteworthy job of delivering on their promises and keeping clients happy.

BETTER LAB TESTS NOW

Based in Virginia, Better Lab Tests Now focuses almost exclusively on blood testing for allergies and other sensitivities. Their available tests include Delayed Allergy, Dental & Orthopedic (bio-sensitivity in materials used in those procedures), Predictive Biomarkers, Immediate Allergy (RAST IgE), Hormone, and Nutritional/Environmental Analysis.

At first glance, it looks as if those are the only tests available - make sure to click on those categories to be taken to a comprehensive list of every type of lab testing within that category. For example, in the Hormone category, there are six tests to choose from, including TSH and Adrenal Function.

To order a test, add it to your cart and check out. One unique feature of Better Lab Tests Now is that all blood tests will be done by a mobile phlebotomist. While this may be less convenient than other types of lab testing that can be done on your own, many of their competitors require that you visit a lab in person in order to have the sample collected. We give Better Lab Tests Now high marks for making it easier for those who may be sick, homebound, or just far from a lab.

We were unable to find much information - positive or negative - to help us determine the reliability of Better Lab Tests Now. Their Facebook page has no reviews, they have no record with the Better Business Bureau, and their own website has no testimonials.

After digging a little further, we did find that Better Lab Tests Now is affiliated with ELISA/ACT Biotechnologies. This business was founded by Dr. Russell M. Jaffe, whose experience as an immunologist within the field of delayed allergies is impressive. We definitely feel that the Better Lab Tests Now site would benefit from making that connection more obvious.

While we think that Better Lab Tests Now is likely an excellent choice for people who need lab testing done specifically for allergies, they can't compete with other services in our review that offer a much more comprehensive selection of testing for other needs (drug screening, for example).

Lab Testing

To help you find the Best Lab Testing, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Ulta Wellness and Better Lab Tests Now.

With all of the changes in the healthcare industry over the past decade, many people are finding themselves in need of lab testing: those who are uninsured (or underinsured), patients who prefer to receive results privately instead of going through a physician's office, and people whose insurance policies may not cover specific, needed tests.

It may surprise you to learn that you can access lab testing on your own terms, without the need of a doctor's order. There is an increasing number of lab testing services available that can help you understand and manage your own health, with most of them offering the ability to collect samples at home instead of going to a laboratory in person.

What kinds of lab testing can you access? Some of the most commonly-purchased tests include the following:

  • Infectious Diseases
  • Ovulation and/or Pregnancy
  • Thyroid Function
  • Allergies
  • Cancer Screening
  • Diabetes
  • Immunology
  • Kidney Function
  • Alcohol
  • Drugs and Steroids

When considering a Lab Testing service, there are several factors to keep in mind.

  • Cost. How much does each test cost? Are there packages available that can save you money? Does the company offer any discounts or free shipping on testing kits?
  • Variety of tests available. What types of tests can you have done through the service? Is there a wide enough variety to cover your needs, both now and in the future?
  • Convenience. Do you have to locate a laboratory in your area, or will the company send a testing kit to your home or office?
  • Reputation. Does the testing company have a good track record for accuracy of results, privacy, and helpful customer service? Does the service carry a rating with the Better Business Bureau?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Lab Testing services available today. We hope these reviews help you get the testing you need right away!
