On how MD+ sets its niche, Dr. Therese explains, “In my practice at the hospital, I see patients intimidated by big institutions. Yet, they also don’t want to go to small laboratories because they feel their services are incomplete. Health care comes with a cost, but our rates are competitive compared with big hospitals.”
The clinic provides a wide-ranging menu—a fully automated lab for the basic tests, including tumor markers; corporate medicine services; imaging studies; home service; and general and aesthetic dentistry.
For annual checkup, one of the optional services is a food intolerance test which determines the body’s adverse response to foods.
“Apart from medications, doctors don’t emphasize enough that 50 percent of taking care of the health comes from food and exercise,” says Dr. Therese. She explains that the food intolerance test is a blood test that measures the immunoglobulin E, an antibody that shows the immune system’s reaction to foods.
While other diagnostic facilities will give the patient the results and booklets of the eating program, MD+ service includes a consultation with a nutritionist to guide the patient in creating a balanced diet without the prohibited foods.
