Eliminate Forced Doctor Visits for Getting Blood Tests

Health Care: allow people to get blood tests without forcing them to see a physician to request a blood test. There are standard listings of blood tests and standardized ranges for blood test results. Anything outside of the normal range is automatically red flagged by the computer. I have to make TWO visits to the doctor to get blood test results PLUS another visit to the test lab. I want to be able to go directly to the blood lab ANY TIME I WANT WITHOUT being forced to go to the doctor twice! All the physician does is hand you what the computer spit out! If this eliminates 25-30% of useless pointless doctor appointments would this not bring costs down across the board? Once I get my results, I can then decide whether I want to follow up with these doctors who do largely NOTHING but send out outrageous bills!
