I live in Oregon and am trying to get this done before I go to Conneticut to see Dr.K. I can't find labcorp or Quest lab anywere in my area. I have a doc willing to order the test, if it's easy.
 
Any suggestions.

I think LabCorp bought Dynacare, so if you have a Dynacare lab in town, then that should work ok...
