My daughter is in her 30's and has been having pain in her joints and memory problems. We live in one of the Lyme hot zones. I thought you could order an Igenex text and get results without involving a doctor. I ordered the test kid and she had the blood drain at her clinic and sent it in but now they are telling her they can't process with a doctors signature. I though for sure I read that was not needed and they would email you the results, help PLEASE

Yes, it does have to be signed by a doctor.

But if you order through a lab like truehealthlabs.com then they have a doctor that signs off for you.

I wonder why they did the lab draw without looking at the paperwork?

I think you meant to say - they can't proceed withOUT a Dr. sig?


Yes a Dr. sig is needed

If you can't get one, then you can try the TrueHealthLabs - where they provide the signature, check it out and see if there is a lab near you for the draw.

Yes, that is correct, they can't proceed withOUT it. They told her she has two months to get a doctors signature. Her regular doctor has moved so getting a new doctor to sign off on that might be tricky.

I just had great results with a doctor in Walker, MN, so worst case I will try and get her in with him but hate wasting the money on this test.

Did they do the test anyway and are holding the results until you get the dr sig?

Sounds like they didn’t do the test yet - and they are holding the blood sample for two months?


At this point I doubt if Igenex has charged for the testing - hopefully not - since there wasn’t a signature

Did she have to pay for the blood draw?

(Unless I’m not understanding)

I purchased the test for her, it was $300 plus, I thought I had read that she didn't need a doctors signature but at the time I was dealing with my own Lyme that I might have had information overload...........

So you have already been charged by Igenex the $300 plus?

Is there any dr you can get to sign - even a chiropractor - or a ND?

That is what we are trying to do now, at least we have 2 months, I was thinking it had to be done immediately
