Home Sleep Study

We offer Home Sleep Study to diagnose sleep apnea in the comfort of your home.

Approximately 3.5 million diagnostic sleep tests are ordered each year. An estimated 80% of these tests are appropriate for home sleep testing, where the patient is able to complete a sleep study in the comfort and convenience of his/her own home. Home sleep testing eliminates waiting periods and improves test completion rates: It can potentially take weeks to get an appointment at a sleep center; home sleep testing can happen next day or around your patient’s schedule Up to 15% of patients fail to make their appointment at a sleep center due to fear, inconvenience or delay in scheduling time; home testing minimizes those factors, eliminating travel time and the need for child care The natural at-home sleep environment facilitates a normal night’s sleep, improving the accuracy of test results.


Weight Management

If the conventional method of diet and exercise for losing weight isn’t working for you, then look no further. You may not have considered that what you need is a replenishment of important vitamins and minerals that your body is lacking. You may be in dire need of the essential vitamins and minerals that enable you to lose the fat and burn off the pounds.

How? The body requires nutrition and vitamins to stimulate the right hormones to function correctly so your body will let go of the fat stores it’s been holding onto. Don’t go under the knife, don’t suffer with extreme dieting, and certainly don’t starve yourself anymore. Lipotropic injections for weight loss may be just what you’re looking for.

  • Do you have family members who have had Breast, Ovarian, Colorectal, Endometrial, Pancreatic, Prostate, Stomach or Skin Cancers ? You need to take control of your health.

Allergy Testing

Allergy testing can help confirm or rule out allergies and consequently reduce adverse reactions and limit unnecessary avoidance and medications.Correct allergy diagnosis, counseling and avoidance advice based on valid allergy test results is of utmost importance and can help reduce the incidence of symptoms, need for medications and improve quality of life. A healthcare provider can use the test results to identify the specific allergic triggers that may be contributing to the symptoms. Using this information, along with a physical examination and case history, the doctor can diagnose the cause of the symptoms and tailor treatments that will help the patient feel better. A negative result can help the doctor rule out allergies in order to consider other possibilities. Ruling out allergies is as important as confirming them to limit unnecessary avoidance, worry and negative social impact. NIH guidelines for the diagnosis and management of food allergy and the diagnosis and management of asthma recommend either allergy blood testing or skin prick testing to reliably determine allergic sensitization.

Here at First Clinic we do allergy blood test. A sample of the patient's blood is used for testing. Test results help determine if the patient has allergies. For babies and young children, a single needle stick for allergy blood testing is often more gentle than several skin tests.
