The first thing that you will want to do is find a lab.
We use Labcorp and you can send them our panel numbers and they should give you the same price that they gave us. The panel numbers are as follows:
MALE CIMASYSTEM PANEL # 239851 $270.00
FEMALE CIMASYSEM PANEl # 239817 $247.50
Just call Lab corp. and set up an account and that they know to bill the office instead of the patient.
Lab corp will assign you a representative who will send you requisition forms that will include your name, blood chemistry profile along with other tests that the lab runs as well. This is what the doctor and the patient will fill out before their appointment to the lab.
I would also instruct the patients on directions to the lab, making appointments, bringing proof of who they are, and let the patient know that it is a 12 hour fast, where they can only drink water, so the test should be done the first thing in the morning.
Some of your patients will already have a blood test. However, very rarely does it have every single test that the Cima Panel requires. With this being said, you can still use the test and enter the results that you do have. Every result that you do not have just put in a middle of range result so the test does not influence the overall results. For example, a range from 10-20 put a value of 15. Even with an incomplete blood test, you will still be able to gain valuable information on diet and chemical imbalances.
The second thing you need to do is order a blood test. I would highly recommend that you become the first patient. The reason is obvious and it will be a great experience to learn why you have some of the problems that you now deal with or will be dealing with.
