From TLNT: Quest Diagnostics is the leading provider of diagnostic testing, information and services. Recently, Quest conducted a study to answer the question many employers and employees ask: Why do we need lab tests?


“As a physician,” explained Harvey Kaufman, M.D., one of three study authors and senior corporate medical director at Quest, “I come across employees who say, ‘I’m great, I’m healthy, haven’t seen a doctor in 10 years.’ I say great, but you don’t really know what’s going on in your body. The only way to find out is to get tested.”
