Lab testing is used to not only assess the state of a person’s illness, but, more importantly, to gain a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s overall health and potential vulnerabilities.
In order to create an individualized treatment plan, it is critical to know which body systems are stressed or out of balance. We will advise you of the tests that will provide important additional information to better understand your current state of health.
Many patients have recent lab results in their health record from their medical providers. This information is helpful and should be shared with the naturopathic doctor. If you have not had recent bloodwork done, standard tests can be ordered by our clinic through Lifelabs and Dynacare Labs. Please note, blood work ordered by Naturopathic Doctors is not covered by OHIP.
