If you’re at risk of a medical issue or have symptoms of one, they may recommend urine testing, blood testing, tissue swabs, heart or lung function testing, a biopsy, imaging procedures, or additional tests to screen for potential problems.

If you need treatment, such as medical weight loss, further diagnostic testing, or medications, your Norwood Medical Associates provider tailors a plan that’s best suited for you. They follow up to keep your risk of medical problems as low as possible.
