Testing that changes lives
Patients are at the heart of all we do at Mayo Clinic Laboratories. Our laboratory testing can clear the fog of an uncertain diagnosis, point to the next steps in care, and pave the way for better treatment. Our work makes a difference in people’s lives around the world every day. Here are some of their stories.

In late 2019, after months of looking for a reason for his rapid loss of muscular function, David Voeltz got an answer: he had necrotizing autoimmune myopathy. Today, after nearly two years of treatment, David has a renewed lease on life and keen appreciation for the Mayo Clinic team that confirmed his diagnosis.
