Transparent and reasonable pricing. Healthcare costs in the US are out-of-control for a lot of reasons. But one reason is that most patients (consumers) buy tests/procedures (products) without being able to shop around for the best prices. Many people see their lab test costs for the first time weeks to months after the tests were run. And a lot of times they are shocked at how expensive they are.
At Berglund Health and Wellness Center, our goal is to provide excellent care at a fair price. We've negotiated with LabCorp (national lab) to get the price of our labs down to as low as 10% what you are likely to pay through a hospital.
Look below and decide for yourself. If we're cheaper, all you need to do is call us to set up a blood draw appointment. Even if you've never come to us as a patient before now or never come again, we're happy to do this service for you. Once the labs are completed, we'll then print or email the lab test report to you.** (disclaimer)

Can Dr. Berglund help me decipher my lab results?
Dr. Berglund has almost 40 years of experience with lab testing. He not only evaluates the labs for diseases but he is also good at figuring out trends and nutritional needs that many times are neglected when blood tests are ordered. If you're interested in having Dr. Berglund go over your labs results with you, you can let the front desk know on the day you're having the blood draw done/lab tests ordered.
**The results for lab tests prescribed by medical doctors will not be sent to the patient but to the doctor directly. Patients that self refer for lab testing can have the labs given to them as a paper report or as a pdf.
