Blossom Pediatrics offers both standard blood work and in-depth specialty testing to help construct a comprehensive picture of your child’s health and better inform their treatment.
- Some of my most frequently prescribed specialty tests assess microbiome health, allergies, toxic metal levels, detoxification, nutritional deficiencies and genetics.
- *Costs for blood work and specialty tests are not included in the appointment price, but blood work is usually covered by insurance. I use non-invasive testing (urine, stool, saliva) whenever possible*
This is your initial 60-90 minute Foundation Consultation. During this time you and Dr. Gluzman will jointly create a practical and livable model for your child’s improved and sustained health. This model is determined by the child’s medical history and the human stories behind his or her symptoms as well as any insights and observations that you and other adults in the child’s life have. Your child’s intangible qualities – strengths; weaknesses; interests, and concerns – combined with the more data driven medical records become part of the vital information needed for a comprehensive assessment.
Other areas covered include your child’s nutrition, sleep, and stress; mental health observations; exercise and movement; labs and diagnostic testing; prescription drugs, herbs, botanicals, supplements, and vitamins.
The assessment is designed to be our blueprint to improving your child’s immune system and reducing overall inflammation. By doing this, we are allowing your child’s body to heal itself from the inside out. By incorporating the most comprehensive modern medicine and holistic wisdom to accurately identify opportunities we improve or eliminate your child’s chronic health issues.
Because we work in tandem with your pediatrician and any specialists involved with your child’s medical treatment, you are assured that everyone is on the same current page when it comes to his/her health and integration of treatments.
Every Foundation Consultation is followed by a complimentary 45 minute follow up visit.
During this 45 minute visit, the whole child plan for nutrition, functional testing, environment, lifestyle will be re-visited. Dr. Gluzman will interpret and discuss all test results and collaborate with you to create an extended care plan that continues to empower you and your family to be the best advocate for your child.
