Blood Work

Done after the first visit.

During the first appointment with Dr. Austin, she will put together a lab requisition form for you to bring to a local lab near your home for the blood draw. What is being tested for is individual and will be determined from the initial meeting when the patient shares their symptoms, health concerns and goals. Blood work is more extensive than what a patient is used to with their doctor as hormones and nutritional tests are usually included in the work up. Blood work is covered under most PPO plans. If you do not have insurance coverage, we will provide you with at cost tests to prevent you being charged insurance prices.

Body Composition Test

Using bio-impedance analysis (BIA), your fat pounds, water in your body, muscle mass and how many calories you need to eat to ensure weight loss will be calculated for you. With this information, we keep track of your weight to ensure you are losing fat pounds and not losing muscle mass. It is recommended to do this test every month to monitor progress. For best results, use this in coordination with our First Line Therapy program.

Thermography is a non-invasive diagnostic exam which uses infrared cameras to detect early signs of pre-cancerous tissue.  By detecting minute variations in normal blood vessel activity, infrared imaging may find thermal signs suggesting a pre-cancerous state of the breast or the presence an early tumor that is not yet large enough to be detected by physical examination, mammography, or other types of structural imaging.

In addition to the exam of the breast and abdominal area, a 30-minute consult to go over the results with the doctor is suggested. Please call our office to book your thermogram or on-line at book online.
