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.
