I have a doctor's order to get a sweat test for my 4-year-old son to see if he has cystic fibrosis. I need to find a place in Northern VA (not Children's hospital in DC) that can do the test soon (within a week). I need a phone number where a real human being will answer who can actually schedule the test. No voice mail, no useless computer menus please (unless you know what buttons to press to get the exact person who can help me). Please try the number first before you post your answer. Note, we want a Cystic Fibrosis sweat test. This is where they apply to the skin a chemical and an electric current to stimulate sweat. Then they collect the sweat in a pad for analysis of the sodium chloride (salt) content. We do not want a blood test, a stool test or a DNA analysis. This is a very specialized test and your typical Qwest Diagnostics and LabCorps doesn't do it. I think they do them at Fairfax Hospital in VA but we can't find a real human to actually schedule it. This is why we need your help. Also, if you can determine if the place accepts Alliance PPO insurance that would be helpful.
