NUTRITION & WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM NUTRITION EVALUATION?

On the initial visit, each individual undergoes a medical exam, review of personal history, medications, and prior health screening history. Since we are a medical practice, we may also recommend additional blood tests, imaging studies, and referral to other specialists as needed. Nutritional testing is recommended to uncover unusual metabolism, hormonal imbalances, and vitamin and nutrient deficiencies. We offer several nutrition panels that can assess underlying health conditions.
