Dr. Rob Mordkin is Chief Medical Officer for and Chief of Urology at the Virginia Hospital Center.  We talk about his strong belief in giving individuals access to in-home health testing to allow them to check on warning signs, confirm findings of other lab tests, and provide on-going monitoring of chronic conditions.  With or without a primary care doctor, patients can order tests, have results reviewed by a physician, discuss findings with a nurse, and if necessary, receive a prescription.
