Diagnostic Analysis (Laboratory Services)
Why do I need labs?
Our treatment philosophy is centered upon true relief from symptoms; not masking them. There are many underlying conditions that can contribute to or cause psychiatric symptoms. Our providers will rule out commonly missed diagnoses such as vitamin and mineral deficiencies or imbalances, food allergies/intolerances and metabolic conditions such as hypothyroidism before prescribing psychotropic medications.
In-depth diagnostic assessment often requires blood work to assess what is taking place inside the body. Our wide network of collection sites ensures that no matter where you are, your lab work can be done at a site that is convenient and cost-effective for you.
