Functional Medicine laboratory testing is not your standard conventional medicine lab testing you are use to having done in your primary care practitioners office. What is done in your primary care practitioners office are only bare bones lab testings, and if these bare bones lab tests worked, you would not still be feeling lousy.
Dr. Cheryl's goal is to have you feeling fantastic, which is why she runs functional lab work on her clients. This type of lab work is rarely done by primary care medical providers. These tests are specialized tests only able to be interpreted by functionally-trained practitioners, like Dr. Cheryl. These tests assess your stool, hair, urine, saliva and blood.
Dr. Cheryl partners with only the most reputable functional medicine laboratories who provide the highest quality and most technologically advanced labs. If you don't see the lab you want or need, please let us know and we will get it for you.
Remember, the goal is to get to the root cause of your health concerns and "nip them in the bud" and this requires medical detective work through functional testing and functional interpretation.
Because everyone is unique, your health needs will determine which functional lab tests you may need. However, Dr. Cheryl does have a CORE Foundational Functional Medicine Lab Package, that is exactly what it describes: FOUNDATIONAL. Just like in building a house, the most important step is to achieve the most optimal foundation possible, and that is what this lab package is designed to do.

We are very transparent when it comes to our lab costs. Functional labs will obviously cost more than conventional labs. If you do have health insurance, you may be able to get reimbursed when you submit our superbill. That’s right! The cost of our services and labs are cheaper than what meets the eye, so don’t let the cost stop you!
