When starting any new eating or dietary plan, it is necessary to measure to see where you are in terms of metabolic health. Just like recording your weight at the beginning of your journey so you can measure progress, establishing your baseline metabolic status is extremely useful to keep you motivated and in the game. The following blood tests are recommended to establish that baseline.
Sarasota Sports Medicine now offering performance and fitness training at their facility at Extra Innings. MVP Training Academy is designed for specific age groups to enhance and increase athleticism through age appropriate progressive dynamic training.
What Client's Are Saying
"When I injured my rotator cuff a few months ago, I knew immediately that I needed to see Dr. Kaufman. As before, he has helped me recover from an injury I thought might keep me down. Showing me how to strengthen the area with small exercises, using laser therapy, taping my shoulder for proper healing, he does it all! Seeing how much he cares about his patients and their progress has made me a patient for life. Any time I have an issue, he finds a way to help me solve it. I have the utmost confidence in his abilities. He is professional, he respects your time, appointments are quick and meaningful, and he is extremely knowledgeable about how to heal the body. I am grateful to have found such a wonderful doctor who has helped me immensely!"
