Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Center by Metagenics

The mission of PLMC is to design the healthcare model of the future. Our model revisits the concept of “health” to be more in alignment with a wellness practice, as opposed to the traditional model of primarily treating sickness. Our approach is based on a personalized functional medicine model and is designed to include traditional allopathic medicine, with a customized program for each patient, to include one-to-one visits, group visits, multimedia learning, and lifestyle education. Through this approach, alongside a unique clinical research model, we hope to redefine how healthcare is being practiced across the world.

Preparing For Your Visit

How should you prepare for your visit to PLMC? We will give you details on getting to the center the day before your appointment. Here are some other things to take into consideration:

Attire

Some assessments require standing, movement, and bare feet. Please wear movement-comfortable clothing and footwear that is easily removed.

Fasting

Your blood must be drawn in a fasted state – no food intake 12 hours prior to your appointment. Water, black coffee, or plain tea are permitted.

Blood Tests

We will make up to two attempts to locate a viable vein to draw blood for your tests. However, lack of vein access will require a follow-up visit to an outside lab. To mitigate this risk, please drink plenty of water prior to your visit and arrive in a hydrated state.
