“There’s a push-pull happening right now in the evolution of health care and it’s all about you. The question under debate is simple: can you handle being the first to know your own test results?
Are you smart enough to read the results? And are you emotionally capable of handling the situation?
Do you need someone next to you when an over-the-counter test tells you whether or not you have a disease? Can you manage your emotions when you open up the results of last week’s blood test when you find out your total cholesterol level has hit 250?”
