Don’t Just Live Longer, Live Healthier with Wellness Care in MD, VA and DC. Why wait until you break a bone before being diagnosed with osteoporosis and then begin treatment? Why withhold treatment until you develop diabetes or heart disease forcing the use of medications with potential side effects that cause more disease? Using a strategy of prevention and prediction of serious illness, Dr. Benjamin Gonzalez provides advanced medical care that seeks to maximize your current health and wellness and intervene early to improve your healthy life.
Dr. Gonzalez provides Wellness Care, not Sickness Care. A Complex Wellness Consultation is 60 to 90 minutes long and includes a line-by-line lab review. He sits with you and listens. He then develops a comprehensive Wellness Care Plan that is individualized to you. He begins by ordering a comprehensive lab screening that includes complete liver and kidney function, heart risk evaluation, nutrition screening and testing, age specific hormone evaluation to include complete thyroid evaluation, stress hormone evaluation, growth hormone screening, and a complete body metabolism evaluation using the SECA mBCA Medical Measuring System. After carefully evaluating the results of your labs, and based on his conversation with you, he provides you with a complete health profile that assesses your current disease susceptibility and a written plan to improve your life and prevent disease. Starting with weekly discussions as needed moving to monthly and finally to bi-annual visits, Dr. Gonzalez works with you every step of the way to implement your personal Wellness Care Plan and makes any necessary adjustments along the way. It is designed to be as comprehensive as necessary, yet at the same time to be convenient and affordable.
