Upon becoming a patient, the BodyLogicMD team will order the necessary labs for your visit, book your initial consultation, and send you an email with instructions on the steps necessary to prepare for your first appointment.
The hormone testing kits for urine, saliva, and/or blood spot testing will be mailed to your home. Follow the detailed instructions included in the urine, saliva, and/or blood spot kit and mail it back to the return address.
The order for your serum blood lab will be emailed to you. To complete this order, visit a local Quest Lab. You can find the location nearest you at QuestDiagnostics.com.
You will need to complete the online medical history and all necessary lab tests prior to your first appointment. Once your practitioner receives your test results, a patient services representative will contact you to confirm your first appointment.
A few weeks after your initial consultation, a patient services representative of BodyLogicMD will contact you to schedule your subsequent lab testing and appointment. This appointment will allow your physician to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments for achieving optimal results and hormone balance. As you move forward on the program, appointments will be scheduled every three to four months to discuss your progress, make any necessary adjustments to your prescriptions, and discuss any concerns or successes you may have at this point in your treatment.
