Access to Your Personal Information
Patients have access to their test results through the MyHealth Portal (https://myhealth.cdllabs.com) .
However, due to the complex nature of the interpretation of results, certain test results cannot be released to patients through this website.
CDL Laboratories does not make corrections to tests results. However, it makes corrections to patient’s demographic information if this information is not correct.
It is well known that computers and networks are not faultless. They are down from time to time. Therefore, CDL Laboratories cannot guarantee that the access to their MyHealth Portal (https://myhealth.cdllabs.com) will not experience interruptions, errors and possibly loss of content.
The patient will be entirely responsible for any loss of data and any corruption in his/her computer system.
