Have you been putting off getting lab-work done due to the cost or inconvenience?
While regular lab testing may seem like an unnecessary luxury to those without proper medical insurance, here at The Natural Medicine Center of Lakeland we are dedicated to making this process convenient and affordable, especially for those uninsured. If you are already an established patient with us the paper-work and waiting time will be extremely minimal and you should be in and out of our clinic in 15-20 minutes. Even if you are unfamiliar with our clinic we will be fully able to assist you in getting your lab work so that you can keep it for your own personal records or to bring it to your primary care physician.
Our primary doctor, Catherine Onuoha, will discuss with patients the significance of each lab test being recommended and can work to reduce the number of tests if price is an issue. We can also supply patients with a preliminary invoice of the cost of various labs so that they know their final total and the individual lab-test costs.
Don’t wait for minor symptoms to become major!
Issues such as thyroid and or hormone imbalance are often misdiagnosed or ignored leaving their symptoms un-medicated or improperly treated. If you frequently suffer from common thyroid issues such as fatigue, weakness, and muscle aches, or hormone symptoms such as heavy periods, hot flashes, and indigestion, it is very likely that your hormone or thyroid levels are out of balance. Once we receive your results we will call to let you know and offer to send it by physical mail or e-mail. While we encourage our patients to discuss their results with Dr. Catherine to begin a medication regimen to bring their levels back to a state of balance, our patients are more than free to take their results to their primary care physician or to hold on to them for their own personal records.
Serious diseases often take months or years to develop and the more noticeable signs and symptoms might not appear till the disease is already manifested. Through lab tests you are able to pin-point problems at an early stage and intervene before an issue becomes serious. While paying for lab-work while healthy might seem like a waste, the chart below demonstrates how expensive, unpleasant, and time consuming an un-managed disease can be.
Take control of your health and empower yourself with the knowledge of how your body is functioning and see how simple changes can lead to drastic results!
