Can you get a DNA test from your doctor?

Now the details. When a paternity test is ordered by a doctor, samples are collected in the same way you would do with a home paternity testing kit: using a painless cheek swab. Some doctors may still draw blood to collect DNA and order a test called RFLP), but drawing blood is invasive and painful.

How much is a paternity test at the hospital?

Costs will vary, depending on which types of procedures are performed. Prices can range from $400.00 to $2,000.00. Non-invasive prenatal testing is often more costly than testing done after a baby is born because of the technologies used to isolate the fetal DNA from the mothers DNA.
