Specialty Testing

The Kelly Goodman Group medical practice strives to be a “one-stop” healthcare provider for its’ patients. In an effort to go above and beyond for our patients, we have partnered with the following specialty laboratories. These tests are not included in the standard physical exam. Your provider may recommend them at their discretion. Please speak with your provider if you are interested in any of these tests.

AVISE Testing

AVISE testing screens two tubes of blood for autoimmune markers which helps to diagnose complex diseases including lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Many of these disorders have vague, non-specific symptoms, which makes diagnosing and differentiating them difficult. AVISE testing can help diagnose autoimmune thyroid disease, fibromyalgia, Sjorgren’s, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
