Functional Pathology

Ordering information:

Functional Pathology refers to a group of tests used to investigate functional, biochemical, nutritional, metabolic and hormonal status.  It is generally requested by a medical practitioner to assist patients with holistic healthcare.  This type of testing is done by specialised labs such as Healthscope Functional Pathology.(http://www.healthscopepathology.com.au/index.php/functional-pathology/)

Patients should be directed to a Healthscope Collection facility to ensure that the correct specimens are collected and stored/transported as required.
