We’re here to be your guide in disease prevention not just treatment. We will guide you through the world of information on the internet, providing advice on nutrition and supplements, medications, which diet makes sense based on your individual genes and personal desires.  We will analyze your current medications and discuss risks benefits of each and help you reduce medication if that is your goal. We will help you determine which preventive tests make sense based on your personal story. Ultimately, we want you to live a long, healthy, happy life.

Men's and Women's Health Services

Early detection of insufficient hormone levels is the first step in the prevention of age related diseases and the best chance we have to enhance our quality of life and longevity. Patients have option to receive in depth laboratory screening to detect hormonal deficiencies but at the same time will have a extensive analysis of cardiovascular risk.  We offer hormone assessment for women during various stages of their lives, child bearing years, peri-menopause and beyond.

Innovative Medical Weight Loss

We have developed an approach to weight loss that brings together years of clinical experience.  There is no “one diet fits all”.  We work with you to first understand if there are any medical reasons you struggle to meet your weight goals (thyroid disease, prediabetes, insulin resistance). We then help address those root causes of weight problems with personalized diet, supplements or medications (if needed or desired).  By personalizing your program based on your unique genetics we can help you achieve long lasting results .

Advanced Lab Testing

We go beyond traditional testing as we  recognize “cholesterol” and “glucose” screening frequently does not accurately detect true risk for disease.  In fact, cholesterol may not even matter that much at all! We have access to the most cutting edge technology and use the best labs available in the country and the world.  Dr. Dall will provide a comprehensive analysis of your labs either in person or telephonically.  As a leading expert in this field, with more than 20 years clinical experience doing advanced lab analysis in her award winning clinic, you will receive the highest level of subspecialty care.  We continually seek out the highest quality laboratories to perform services.  In fact, some testing may not provide clinically useful information as the test itself does not have the sensitivity and specificity it needs to be clinically helpful.  Some laboratories cut corners on quality.  We want to help patients wisely spend health care dollars on only those tests that will change our action plan.

Personalized Nutrition

We believe strongly that food is powerful medicine and we want to make this a cornerstone of your healing.   We also believe that much of what you have been taught about nutrition in the past may not be the most up to date understanding of the science nor the approach that will work for you. We do not believe in a “one diet fits all” approach. We understand how lifestyle and genetics work together.  As part of our discovery, you may choose to do a deeper dive into your genetics through more comprehensive genome testing, microbiome gut health assessment, blood and nutrient analysis or environmental toxin exposure.   All of these factors are critically important to consider and our providers stay up to date on the newest scientific discoveries.   We also understand you have personal choices that need to be considered and we want to work with you to make this a lifestyle change you love and want to stick with.
