Functional Diagnostic Testing starts with standard screening tests such as Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Complete Blood Count, and Lipid Panel. Depending on your history and symptom picture, functional testing often adds tests such as:

Some of the testing can be performed in your home with test kits to collect urine, saliva or stool. Some of the testing is done through conventional laboratories, while other tests are only available through specialty laboratories. During your consultation, we will determine which tests are needed and then our office assistants can review the testing recommendations, the instructions (e.g. fasting or non-fasting, etc.) and costs. Others may require you to go to a local laboratory to draw the blood. In all cases, we will assist you in coordinating initial and follow-up testing.

Occasionally, we may recommend certain tests that are not performed at our facility. In those instances, we can provide you with an order that you can take to a facility near your home, or we can schedule an appointment to have them done near our office.
