Welcome to healthcare Magic!
This is where a layman mistakes!
Why do you want to save on the doctors consultation, which is the most vital component of the health-care.
Get the physician to decide whether you need an investigation or not, whether that much would be sufficient for you.
May be you need some else and you are spending on some else!
By cutting down unnecessary investigation the doctor can actually prove economical.
if you still want to save then you may contact a local laboratory for the needful.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Hi thanks for your question
You can visit any laboratory in your area and request for test you want to take.
For liver function the test is called as LFT and CBC is short form of complete blood count.
Hope this answers your question.
