Lab Tests and Health Assessments
To create the most effective treatment plans for our patients, we use thorough medical testing including:
- Nutritional Deficiency Testing (vitamin D, iron, vitamin B12, folate, etc)
- Comprehensive Digestive Function Testing
BIA is a science that tests your body composition. Our BIA machine is thoroughly backed by medical research showing that it gives very accurate measures of your unique body composition. BIA is a quick, non-invasive test that identifies:
- Your percentage of body fat
- Your lean muscle mass
- Your hydration status
- Your metabolic rate and the number of calories you burn on a daily basis

We take the time to find out about your family history, your lifestyle, the stressors in your life, past medical history, history of accidents or injuries and the significant events in your life that have affected your health or well being.
Naturopathic Doctors are trained to do complete physical exams as a standard part of patient assessment. As your health changes or as acute situations arise, we use the physical examination to aid in diagnosis of your health concerns. Having a complete physical exam on a yearly basis is an essential part of preventative health care. Naturopathic Doctors often take the time to ensure that the “small” symptoms are identified and addressed before they become a “bigger” problem.
Understanding your nutritional status, eating habits and patterns and the type of food that you eat on a regular is an important part of the naturopathic assessment. We take the time to assess the impact that your diet is having on health and your body’s ability to handle the food that you are eating.
All medical reports, such as blood tests, MRIs, X-rays or scans are valuable assets that we use during your health assessment. We will refer to another medical health professional, when appropriate, to ensure that all patients receive the best quality health care possible and that all required information is available in order to fully understand the root causes of your health concerns.
