    Bloodwork in NY

    Anyone on here from New York ever have any trouble getting blood work? I'm about to start my first cycle following Austinites protocol, and I have no idea where I'm going to get my blood work from. I have fears of talking to my doctor about it, because of advice that I've been given from some of the vets on here. But I gotta find a doc I guess that would be okay with helping me. Or at least one that wouldn't drop me and contact my insurance and the whole nine. Just looking for some direction. Gear is on it's way and I want to get this figured out.

    I have a few friends in New York that have gone through the TRT places just for the blood work while they're on cycle. You might be able to go to your GP and just asked them to do regular bloodwork at least for your first one.

    Can you not thwart the labs by ordering in a friend or relative's name or change your billing address temporarily to a friend's?

    Not a bad idea but I dont think/know if they will do any blood draws inside of NY still. I think he has to go out of NY to get it done or as bigdil511 suggested, go to a trt clinic. That was also my suggestion.

    Bw in the New England/NY area is extremely difficult to get done......and extremely frustrating. Unless you have a pre-existing condition or on trt you are going to have to travel.

    Haha, frustrating, yes, that's about where I'm at. I live close to PA border, so I'm looking into that. Also found an HRT specialist in Buffalo, but I wouldn't be able to get regular bloodwork more than likely.

    So BusterBrown, I have a friend with a PA address. So, I would just go to one of the online labs, put in my name with that address, get the lab orders, drive to PA and get it drawn. But do they ask for id? Obviously my id won't say PA but NY.
