Why is Dr. Plank's blood work and nutritional care different than my doctor would offer?
Dr. Plank, your primary care physician (PCP) and any doctor will evaluate your blood work for abnormal results. Dr. Plank's 25 years of experience allows her to interpret your blood work for underlying and overlooked nutritional irregularities.
Completing thorough blood work is necessary to evaluate for biologic and biochemical imbalances in your body. These labs reveal imbalances, preventing progression of symptoms.
For example, hormones are frequently imbalanced in men and women but rarely ordered by physician's. Dr. Plank will evaluate your body as a whole to find the cause of your symptoms.
