  • Memory and cognition issues
  • Urinary issues like incontinence
  • Digestive and metabolic problems
  • Diminishing balance and increased falls

Are there different types of anti-aging medical treatments?

Dr. Spiegel offers a wide variety of anti-aging services to treat a range of age-related health issues, including:

  • Hormone balancing
  • Metabolic medicine
  • Nutritional imbalance

Dr. Spiegel also provides a variety of services specifically for the care of your joints and skeleton, including osteoarthritis treatment.

What can I expect during my appointment?

Dr. Spiegel takes a functional medicine approach to your anti-aging treatment. This means working closely with you to identify the root cause of your issue — or prospective issue — to manage your health. A key component of this approach is genetic testing.

Genetic testing is a type of screening that examines your DNA to reveal changes or alterations in your genes that may cause disease or illness. In addition to helping to determine your risks for specific health problems, genetic testing can help Dr. Spiegel guide your treatment options and evaluate your response to potential medical treatments.

Dr. Spiegel might recommend genetic testing to help identify:

  • A disease and its severity
  • Genes that put you at risk of disease
  • Your response to certain types of medication
  • Potential health conditions in newborn babies
  • Genetic problems you could pass on to your children

Genetic testing can provide important information to help diagnose, treat, and prevent illness.

What are the benefits of genetic testing?

One of Dr. Spiegel’s goals with genetic testing is to provide greater awareness of your overall health. By making you aware of the information provided within your DNA, Dr. Spiegel is able to offer even better guidance to help you achieve your health goals and prevent disease.

Genetic testing also offers the ability to make an accurate and early disease diagnosis. This early intervention not only saves lives, it can provide more effective treatment options. In addition, many families find peace of mind through genetic testing as they plan for their future.
