We use both conventional medical labs and innovative, cutting-edge labs you might not yet be familiar with that help assess your health and determine key elements of your treatment plan, where needed. During the course of your treatment I will discuss the need for lab work as is appropriate to your care.
Clinically relevant information can be learned from samples of your blood, urine, saliva, feces or a simple cheek swab so I can tailor a treatment plan for you specifically and not just resort to treating the illness without regard to how it affects you or any personal anomalies you may have.
Genomics testing is available for those who want to create a truly preventive health program. It is a private test, based on your DNA, and can show vulnerabilities concerning osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease, blood vessel problems (vascular or vein troubles), neurologic and other potential health problems. This testing is anonymous – it does not go to an insurance company database. If you have a family history of certain illnesses, or you were adopted or simply don’t really know your family’s health history, why not take the worry out of whether your current wellness efforts are likely to be effective? We can discuss if this testing is appropriate for you and your future health goals.
