Therapies & Programs
At Avisio Naturopathic Clinic, our vast array of testing and interpretation can provide you with answers in a manner you can easily understand regardless of how scientific it is. We are the only naturopathic clinic in Surrey with such a vast range of interpretive knowledge that can then be transformed into your particular treatment program(s). Under Dr. Quach's leadership, we have selected from some of the best laboratories in North America to deliver over 200 various lab tests to patients with nearly any ailment or simply for building knowledge to treat and maintain overall health.
Some tests can be done entirely in our clinic and you may have the results before you leave. In other cases, samples may be collected in our clinic or at a local lab.
The best part? Our naturopathic doctors can interpret the most scientific information from test results far beyond the norm. It does not matter if the tests were run by another doctor (MD or ND), or from a specialist. We can review all outside lab tests, scans, etc.
Continuity of care for our patients: Patients can continually send us their most recent results, even if you don't have a scheduled appointment. Or, when at Lifelabs or BC BioMedical, patients can now instruct staff to send a copy of their test results directly to Dr. Cindy Quach.
Our naturopathic doctors will review the results and can offer a first opinion or second opinion, on a case by case basis. We don't just assess abnormal results, we can often identify the early stage disease trends before it's a full-blown disease.
The following is a short list of some of our more commonly requested tests. If you don't see something your are interested in you can contact our office for more details. Don't hesitate to ask the naturopathic doctor, during your consultation, which test(s) may be right for you.
