The Top Five Take Aways

Patient Testimonial from John Kirstel

I greatly value time. As a busy professional, I try to streamline all my responsibilities so that I can maximize my personal time for family and friends.

  • The structure of the “total health assessment” was so efficient and well coordinated. There was no fragmentation or uncertainty. I felt total confidence throughout the whole day.
  • Dr. Burick made me feel comfortable instantly and I was so impressed by the scope of all the medical analysis we covered in just one day. I was so appreciative of the step-by-step explanation and the two way dialogue.
  • I was so appreciative of the diverse depth and scope of the lab results captured.
  • Since both of my prior primary care physicians had retired, I decided to take a deeper dive into a total health and wellness assessment to receive a fresh perspective and analysis from a doctor that specializes in advanced testing and diagnostics.
  • The day provided a precise road map of where I needed to focus my attention and take action.
