Thyroid Ultrasound: Assessment of thyroid size and structure by direct sonographic visualization

Ultrasound-Guided Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy: With assistance and direct visualization by a high resolution ultrasound, a small needle is carefully inserted into a thyroid nodule.  A small specimen from the thyroid nodule is taken, and sent off to a Pathology laboratory for analysis.  This will determine if the nodule has cancer cells and if it requires surgical removal.

Metabolic and Nutritional Assessment: Assessment of Basal Metabolic Rate/Resting Metabolic Rate: This is the exact number of calories you burn at rest in a day (measured by oxygen consumption). We have a a state-of-the-art device that accurately measures oxygen consumption (VO2) to determine resting metabolic rate. This allows for personalization and accurate development of individual nutrition and weight management goals. No more guessing about how much you should be eating - it’s right there in front of you. And you will leave our office with a print out as well!                                                                                                                                                                             Click Here to See:
