Accurate lab results: All that matters is that the lab deliver results that accurately reflect what is happening with the patient. It's all about your health, not trying to keep numbers in range. If you're iron-deficient, we want to know right away to find the cause -- which may be a serious illness we can treat. If the trans-sat is high, we can address possible iron overload. No "decision level" replaces a dr's skill.
