The majority of lab tests used to help uncover drivers of disease are performed in the comfort of your own home. Kits are delivered to your home and may include blood spot (finger prick), salivary, stool, or urine collection. Once the collection is completed, the samples are sent back to the lab in prepaid shipping bags. Dr. Quintana, a functional medicine doctor, will get the results in 7-14 business days, depending on the nature of the test. Upon receiving the results, Dr. Quintana will review the findings and interpret the data for your individual case. Next, a follow–up appointment, called the report of findings, will take place to explain the meaning of your results and review your personalized health program. A functional medicine Personalized Health Program will include the following: diet changes, nutritional supplements, exercise, lifestyle, and stress management recommendations. Subsequent consultations are scheduled to monitor your progress and modify your program.
