Elite Lab Testing's network of accredited medical reference labs and service centers helps patients take charge of their health and wellness with tests performed at more than 1,700 LabCorp locations across the country. These lab tests—which don't require referrals or doctor visits—cover a lot of ground. For example, with a single blood draw, medical professionals can check for the IgE antibodies that may be causing allergic reactions to insect stings, foods, pollen, mold, and younger siblings. They might spend the rest of the day screening blood-sugar levels, scanning hormone levels and thyroid health, checking for heart attack risks, and lifting the hood on the liver and kidneys. Customers can even order the same tests their health care provider does for routine physicals. Elite Lab Testing also performs drug screens, and offers affordable pricing packages and wellness programs that equip the health-conscious community with useful tools for constructing a healthy lifestyle.

During every appointment at The Center of Integrative Chinese Medicine, the staff members take the same first step: they listen.

After that, they use acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and ancient Chinese medicine to treat a range of conditions, including hypertension, anxiety, bronchitis, tennis elbow, and dizziness.

Dr. Keller and his medical team resuscitate skin from premature aging with advanced techniques in diagnostic, genetic, and cellular medicine. Help your visage’s garden bloom with a facial treatment that exfoliates and revitalizes skin, stimulating new cell growth.

Following the sloughing of cells, an enzyme peel and dermal infusion targets each guest’s specific skin conditions. Faces are topped off with serum, cream, and sunblock to protect delicate mugs from the sun's over-enthused eskimo kisses.
