Common Blood Tests - Blood

Blood testing is the gold standard for measuring levels, ratios and patterns of cell structures and nutrients to determine proper biological functioning. Your medical practitioner will order blood work when you go in for your physical or sick visit to help determine your health status. In Texas, pharmacists now have the opportunity to order tests on your behalf for times when you want to follow up on the success of your nutritional and pharmaceutical protocols. Below is a list of commonly requested blood tests. If you are interested in obtaining bloodwork through the pharmacy, please contact Lark Swofford in our Dallas location at 214-349-8000 or
