PERSONALABS Offers Discounted Healthy Heart Online Blood Tests in February

Heart disease tests can be ordered with a click of a mouse

Fort Meyers, Fl (Vocus) February 11, 2010 -- Everyone knows February is heart month. From frilly Valentine hearts to the more serious pleas to "Go Red for Women" campaign to raise awareness of women’s heart disease, clearly this month is dedicated to hearts. Not so obvious are the sinister diseases lurking in and around the heart. That’s why PERSONALABS™ is offering discounted heart-healthy online blood tests. In many cases, early detection can literally save a life.

"Heart disease does not always carry outward symptoms,” says Ed Salko, D.O., founder and medical director of PERSONALABS, an online blood testing Website. "Cholesterol checks, lipid panels and C-reactive protein tests can detect abnormalities and alert patients to the need to schedule a comprehensive examination with their physicians.”

Online blood testing is a relatively new concept that is beginning to catch on in today’s unpredictable health care environment. Patients can order tests or panels designed by Salko and LabCorp customized to a variety of diseases. There is no need to schedule a physician’s visit to order the tests. Simply click on the site,, choose either the healthy heart or ultimate healthy heart panel, pay online and take the order to the nearest LabCorp facility. Results are posted to a secure Website accessible only to the patient.

According to Salko, online blood tests should not be substituted for consultation with a physician, but can be used in conjunction with advice from health care providers.

"Once patients receive their results, they can bring them to the physician for further review and advice,” adds Salko. "Online testing simply eliminates the first step in the process and saves the patient time and money. If a patient has risk factors for heart disease and blood tests confirm that, it helps the physician to determine the next steps. In any case, if patients are experiencing symptoms, they should either seek immediate emergency care or contact a physician.”

During the month of February, PERSONALABS™ reduced the price of its healthy heart panels to encourage patients to take an active role in their health care. The Healthy Heart Panel, regularly $199 is reduced to $169 and the Ultimate Healthy Heart panel, regularly $280, is reduced to $238.
