As long as you have a lab sheet,(the paper that states your doctor wants that test run), you can go to any lab and hand it to them and they will do the blood work. Any hospital has a lab and many doctor's offices can do it too. You don't need an appt. As far as cost, I don't know. I know your health insurance is completely different from ours but shouldn't it cover you when visiting in the US? If not then perhaps the lab could give you idea of the cost. Hope this helps.
