Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services?including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis?before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24?48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn?t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.
At InShapeMD, doctors shepherd clients through wellness programs designed to help them feel younger and increase their energy. Exams and lab work provide the medical team with baseline data at the start of the signature Count Down Diet—a guided, one-on-one support and nutrition regimen that can be supplemented with injections of vitamin B12, lipotropics, or big-band music, all of which are designed to boost energy. Hormone-replacement programs for both women and men aim to restore focus, wellness, and libido by adding hormone-replacement for testosterone injections, creams, and troches.
A team of licensed aestheticians and hair and nail designer help clients elevate their looks inside Carolina Skin Centre, which doubles as a day spa and salon. Two-hour spa packages refresh faces and eyes, while teeth whitening services ensure that mouths can still beam brightly. Skin care specialties such as chemical exfoliation and microdermabrasions with oxygen infusions keep visages looking smooth and youthful.
Along with his staff, medical director Dr. Steve Ahmed improves patients' confidence and appearance with nonsurgical treatments that address weight, aging, skin, and hair-removal concerns. The exfoliation of the center's microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels whisk away layers of dead skin cells to smooth facial lines, fade acne scarring, and minimize visible sun damage. Dermal fillers temporarily plump up deeper wrinkles with minimally invasive injections and no downtime. Patients looking to sculpt their silhouette can try out a custom-tailored weight-loss program, and those with diet- and exercise-resistant fat can explore options such as liposuction or cellulite reduction with the EndyMed Pro system, which smoothens out fat deposits and piles of puzzle pieces that cause cellulite until they lie perfectly flat beneath the skin.
