Many patients are concerned about excess weight and its underlying causes. Metabolic Testing helps give us the answer by determining your resting energy expenditure. By precisely evaluating byproducts of respiration we can then put together an exercise and nutritional program that fits your metabolic pattern.
Doppler testing utilizes ultrasound to uncover any underlying blockages in your blood vessels. This safe non-invasive procedure provides precise and useful information which is predictive of cardiovascular risk.
The EKG evaluates your cardiac rhythm and can scan for underlying problems in your heart’s electrical conduction system, acting as an early warning system. Baseline testing also provides a useful comparison for any future issues which may arise.
Pulmonary Function Test (PFT)
Diminished lung capacity is common among those with a history of smoking, asthma, or living in a city. Pulmonary function tests are very important in determining how well your lungs are working, plus most lung problems can be successfully treated if detected early. These tests will show how much air your lungs can hold, how quickly you can move air in and out of your lungs and very importantly, how well your lungs move oxygen into your blood and how well it moves carbon dioxide out of your blood.
Bone Density Testing
This unique test can determine bone density through the use of Ultrasound. Bone density testing can determine your risk for osteoporosis, a crucial marker for health and longevity and a predictor for future risk of fracture. The use of ultrasound also minimizes the risk of radiation and is an effective alternative to traditional bone mineral testing.
Comprehensive Lab Testing
At The Firshein Center we are extremely proud of our in-house hematology lab which has provided fast, accurate results for over 20 years These laboratory tests look for specific markers of health which predict problems with the immune system, cardiovascular system, cancer risk, as well as to determine specific nutritional deficiencies. The Firshein Center for Integrative Medicine is also affiliated with a number of state of the art laboratories that look at markers of metabolic health, hidden allergies and genetic markers, and parasites.
