Although kids at his pediatrics practice affectionately call him "Dr. Spoon," adults at Emerge Esthetics & Weight Management know Bryan Weatherspoon, MD as the physician who can help them fit into skinny jeans or slim-cut gunnysacks. Dr. Weatherspoon sits down with patients to draw up individual plans for weight-loss success incorporating long-term lifestyle and nutritional changes, fat-burning injections, and professional-grade HCG. Dr. Weatherspoon also transforms bodies from the outside in by administering mesotherapy to slenderize areas of stubborn fat, and injecting dermal fillers to combat wrinkles.
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.
