Analyte Health's staff of certified phlebotomists works to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases by offering affordable screening to patients at more than 30 Houston-area locations. The FDA-approved and CLIE-certified test scans blood and urine samples for eight sexually transmitted diseases, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B and C, herpes I and II, HIV, and syphilis. Within 72 hours, patients receive their confidential test results on a secure website or via e-mail, with the promise that Analyte Health will never share them with a third party. If necessary, fully trained doctors and medical professionals are on hand to discuss treatment options.
When non-life-threatening medical trouble arises, MedSpring’s immediate-care physicians provide quick treatment without the long waits of the emergency room or the difficulty in securing last-second appointments with a primary-care physician. The center's medical staff prescribes treatments for allergies and coughs, treats fever and flu, and tends to broken bones and sprains. Walk-ins and same-day appointments accommodate all manner of unexpected injuries, and next-day appointments accommodate injuries foretold by fortune cookies. Complimentary beverages and snacks nourish family members as they await their loved ones' treatments. Patients, meanwhile, are tended to in private suites furnished with couches, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and coloring tables to amuse children. Unlike a search-and-rescue st. bernard, MedSpring accepts most major insurance plans. Patients are also asked to fill out a brief written survey and with their permission, MedSpring posts good and bad reviews to their website.
JoLynn Swain doesn’t subscribe to the one-size-fits-all model of massage. The licensed and nationally certified therapist believes in the body’s ability to communicate its needs, and as an intuitive massage artist, her hands pick up on tension, stress, and pain and tailor their movements in accordance. Working within the framework of treatments such as hot-stone, deep-tissue, and prenatal massage, JoLynn listens to each muscle's patterns and deciphers its thick Texas accent to deliver the best possible treatment and address underlying issues such as past injuries or misalignment. In addition to her custom services, she also excels at reflexology as well as oncology massages, which, with a doctor’s consent, can help clients find emotional and physical comfort while undergoing chemo or radiology.
A full-service healthcare and wellness practice formerly known as InterFit, RediClinic pairs licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants with patients seeking services ranging from physicals and vaccinations to cosmetic consultations and diabetes testing.

In addition to preventive services, RediClinic has also expanded its services into the realms of proactive health, promoting wellness with weight-loss counseling and programs to help patients stop smoking.
DiagnosticsforU bypasses the rigmarole of intrusive visits to the doctor's office with thorough and speedy health and hormone panels that test the body's trouble spots.

The lab's speed?often offering a turnaround time of 24?48 hours?is rivaled only by its commitment to convenience. Orders can be placed confidentially by phone, and results are returned by mail, email, or fax and shared with a designated physician as desired.
