My LLMD ordered about $700 in Igenex testing, I just wasn't sure what tests were performed. I know he did the Western Blot as well as the FISH test, but must there have been more tests done to total over $700? Or is the FISH test that expensive?

I had the IFA for both B. Mictori and B. Duncani plus the FISH, and it was $500. He must have ordered at least one other test in addition to those.

Watch out for LLMDs marking up Igenex tests. My old LLMD did that and it ****ed me off. Marked an individual WB up by $60, which is a 33%+ mark-up.
