Functional Diagnostic Medicine: Also known as Functional Blood Chemistry, utilizes diagnostic lab tests- blood, saliva, stool, and urine, as tools to discover the root cause of patients’ signs and symptoms. Once the patient fills out a comprehensive questionnaire, a thorough physical exam and the medical history is examined. Dr. Gold can then determine what diagnostic labs are necessary. Once results are in, along with the information provided by and collected from the patient, Dr. Gold can prescribe a neutraceutical protocol along with the proper diet and exercise program; once again, restoring health and vitality to the patient.
