Q1: What kind of patients do you take?

A1: We take a broad range of patients, from children to senior citizens, to world class athletics. Remember by creating an environment to balance body chemistry, the performance of the body will be maximized. (Return To Top)

Q2: If I am healthy and not having any problems, would you recommend this program?
A2: First of all no body is truly healthy in this day and age, with all the toxins, pollution, and unhealthy food. If you wait until you have symptoms you probably have been sick without knowing it, or waited too long. Our focus is on prevention.(Return To Top)

Q3: How long does it take to get the result?
A3: By the time the patient enters the office it is about 3 to 4 weeks before all the results are ready. As we are waiting, for the lab to send us the results, the Dr. studies them and generates a 15 to 25 page report depending on the patient's condition. (Return To Top)

Q4: Does Insurances cover any of the tests?
A4: Generally they won't. You will need to call your insurance company and ask what coverage you have for lab work and nutritional services ordered by Dr. Dietrich. (Return To Top)

Q5: How is my progress checked?
A5: Depending on the patient's condition, or what they are looking to accomplish, we routinely do several follow-up blood panels until we reach that patients health goals. (Return To Top)

Q6: Why do we do 50 Blood panels?
A6: We believe, and have found out after extensive research that by doing 50 panels we are able to see the whole picture, instead of just bites and pieces. For example by only checking cholesterol, you have only part of the puzzle, as there might be something else in the blood that's causing a malfunction in the liver. (Return To Top)

Q9: Do you accept patient's out of state?
A9: Yes, we can set -up a phone consultation, as we have the ability to order Blood any where in the U.S. We would prefer to see you in person on the first visit, but we understand that sometimes it's impossible because of health challenges. (Return To Top)

Q10: Can I lose weight on this program?
A10: Weight loss is not our focus. As the body gets healthy it will regulate its own weight. When people start eating properly and providing their body with proper nutrients to correct metabolic imbalances their body will naturally return to its right weight. (Return To Top)

Q11: I am a young athletic looking to maximums my potential, can you help me?
A11: Yes, whether you're in High School Athletics or a 70 year old trying to improve his Golf, it would be impossible to improve, unless you have the proper nutrients focused on your individual body chemistry.(Return To Top)
