The correct diagnosis of current or underlying health conditions is paramount when formulating an effective treatment strategy. As such we offer an extensive range of clinical and laboratory tests to help identify or rule out underlying causes and health complaints.
All of the tests listed below are available as a patient through our clinic. There are however various tests, marked "Available Online" that can be purchased online without a consultation to check various aspects of your own health. However, we strongly recommend if you have a serious health complaint that you make an appointment for a full health appraisal with a qualified practitioner. This will ensure a comprehensive review of your health is performed and the appropriate tests carried out to determine the best possible treatment plan for you. We offer consultations in person at our clinic, over Skype or the telephone.
Some of our online tests offer an easy to follow treatment plan as an option with your results. Other tests (with more detailed results) offer the test report only and the recommendation for a consultation to review your results with you and to formulate an effective personalised treatment plan.
