I went to the Labcorps facility in Las Cruces, today, 01 May, for routine blood tests. I explained to the lab technician that it was very difficult to draw blood from me and showed her where generally technician's have had success in the past.
She ignored my suggestion and went with what she thought was the best location. She jabbed the needle in and started moving it all around in my arm trying to find a vein and ended up driving the needle into a tendon. It was excruciatingly painful. She removed the needle then rudely handed my paperwork back to me and told me I had to go to the hospital to have it done.
I went to Quest Diagnostics which is an out of network provider for me. They were awesome and who I will continue to use in the future.
