Our complex testing measures dozens of biomarkers, so our doctors can see an accurate picture of what is happening to your health. This information we use to create a complete, customized therapy.
Types Of Comprehensive Testing
There are different types of comprehensive testing for men and women. For example, a blood test can determine whether you have a high sugar (glucose) level, high cholesterol, or low testosterone. The specific testing protocol varies depending on which one your doctor orders after consultation.
As with all medical tests, it’s important to follow all of the preparation instructions from your healthcare team. In general, for complex blood tests, your doctor will ask you to:
- fast for a specific period of time before the test, at least 12 hours before the test.
- stop taking certain prescription medications a few days before the test if they might interfere with the test results.
- stop taking vitamins a few weeks before the test.
For some tests, your doctor may provide additional preparation instructions.
If your doctor thinks the levels of testosterone or other hormones in your body may be abnormal, they will likely order one or more of the tests.

What is the price?
The cost of comprehensive tests varies based on your insurance coverage, the facility where you have the tests done, and which lab is used to perform the analysis.
Your actual costs may vary depending on how much your healthcare team charges for services, such as drawing your blood and sending it to the lab.
