Do you feel healthy?
We are a team of experts that are dedicated to personalized care and enhancement of your health, with a focus on treating causes not symptoms, through the use of unique detailed lab assessments with evidence based medical care. The goal of our practice is to empower you to achieve your health goals - and make them last!
We've all had blood work done through our primary care physicians. Usually, the lab work screens for problems, but what if you could monitor your health and make appropriate changes - often before problems occur - by following particular patterns and numbers through advanced biomarker testing?
At Texas Metabolic Centers, our mission is to reverse the onset of dangerous diseases before they take hold and do irreversible damage to your body. We are an integrative and functional medicine (combining medications with lifestyle changes) practice, but are unique in that we focus on utilizing only evidence-based scientific research to support our treatments.
We are passionate about helping others find optimal health, with many strengths including:
Supportive, Intelligent, Caring Team, who work with patients to help achieve health goals and overall well-being, whether a patient is dealing with a chronic metabolic illness or is already healthy but wants to enhance their health even more.
Adequate Time per visit: Each patient spends an average of 45-60 minutes per visit, learning about their health via their bloodwork results and addressing questions/concerns.
Customized and Comprehensive Treatment Plans: Based on cutting edge research and a patient's unique biochemistry, we focus on 5 core areas of improvement: Nutrition, Physical Activity, Sleep, Stress Management, and Medications/Supplements (if indicated).
Whether you want to lose weight, decrease unrelenting fatigue, boost energy, treat a chronic health issue (such as prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, hypothyroidism or hormone issues related to menopause or andropause), or just maintain a current state of good health, you can benefit from integrative medicine. We employ a combination of advanced medicine, cutting-edge biomarker testing, dietary planning and holistic therapies to get to the root of your symptoms.
We are proud to say that we've helped thousands of clients successfully manage these conditions and regain robust, healthy lives. Ever single day counts, and you deserve to feel your best for yourself and your family.
