Comprehensive Blood Work
Comprehensive Blood Work Panel for Holistic Healthcare in Brooklyn, NY
At the NY Center for Integrative Medicine, we believe that health care should go beyond treating the symptoms and focus on bringing each patient to their optimum level of health. At our practice in Brooklyn, NY, we conduct standard lab tests as well as comprehensive functional medicine blood work panels. Our approach though, since we take a functional medicine and naturopathic medicine perspective, is to look much more deeply. More than your typical health assessment, we take an expansive look at a variety of indicators of health that can predict or uncover chronic issues.
How Bloodwork Helps Us Treat Our Patients
Just like normal temperature readings and blood pressure varies from person to person, so do the results of the bloodwork. Moreover, what is normal for one person may be abnormal for the next person. We work to understand whether your test results are within an optimal range based on your unique situation, body composition, personal health history, and family health history. We also consider your long-term health related goals to ensure that you have a thorough understanding of how to achieve optimal sustainable health.
This approach is called Precision Medicine. The goal of Precision Medicine is to look at blood work from a precise and personalized perspective. Rather than treating symptoms from a one-size fits all approach, we focus on the genetics, lifestyle, and environment of each patient. Our comprehensive blood work is state-of-the-art, and we look at everything necessary to make sure that the person is getting the care that they need, such as hormones, nutrients, and vitamins.
Helping you get the answers you need
Many people have a similar experience: They do not feel well. Their energy is low. They are often in a terrible mood. Aches and pains seem to find them more often than their peers. Yet, when they go to the doctor and get testing done, everything seems “normal”. Often, these same people are told that their symptoms are “all in their head” and that perhaps an antidepressant may help. Does this sound like you?
At NY Center for Integrative Medicine, we understand that nobody knows your body as well as your do. We will work with you to uncover the root cause of your suffering. As your healthcare detectives, we will partner with you to figure out exactly is limiting your ability to thrive and feel your best.

Importance of comprehensive blood work and IV therapy explained by Dr. Kachko
How important is it to carry out a comprehensive assessment of blood work?
Hi, this is Dr. Robert Kachko, from the New York Center for Integrative Medicine. We take a comprehensive, holistic look at your health care needs.
To understand what your brain and body need, we have to do a thorough assessment to look and find the root cause of what’s keeping you from feeling your best.
For most of our patients, that comprehensive assessment often starts with blood work.
What can be analyzed through blood work?
We can use comprehensive blood work to look at lipids and high cholesterol, inflammation, elevated blood sugar, and insulin resistance.
We can assess for essential nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and fats. We can look to see how your hormones are functioning and balance them.
We can also see if there are any environmental causes that might contribute to how you’re feeling. This can be things like heavy metals or infections due to different viruses.
What are the steps taken after a comprehensive analysis of blood work?
Once we get a comprehensive look at the human body, we can create a targeted treatment plan. One of the most powerful therapies to help each individual with a personalized plan is IV nutrient therapy.
When it comes to IV therapy, we can help the body more efficiently by giving the body what it needs in terms of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, targeted botanicals, and precisely recommended prescriptions.
What are the benefits of IV Therapy?
Once an individual gets IV therapy based on their unique needs, the body has an opportunity to flourish. Chronic conditions can be prevented and sometimes even be reversed.
At the New York Center for Integrative Medicine, we first do an intense assessment and then create a customized treatment plan.
Alongside IV therapy, this plan might include things like acupuncture, mind-body medicine, and targeted nutraceuticals.
