Because our program is medically supervised we require all of our clients to have a full panel of lab work completed prior to starting the program. Blood is drawn (Must be completed prior to your first starting appointment) at the Downtown Billings Clinic and on a walk-in basis Monday thru Friday 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. (Cost of labs is included in initial start up).
This is a fasting blood draw and you can not eat or drink anything except water for approximately 6-8 hours prior to having them drawn. (We suggest getting them drawn early in the morning and before eating breakfast.)
We partner with the Downtown Billings Clinic located at 801 N. 29th St. Billings, MT. The Blood Draw is located on the first floor. You can enter from either side of the building where is says, "Commons Area". Blood may only be drawn at the Downtown Billings Clinic location. New labs must be run on every client even if you have recently had labs run and blood drawn. No exceptions will be made. Sorry for the inconvenience.
We also require all of our clients have an electrocardiogram (EKG). We perform the EKG in our Go Figure Billings office. This test is painless and takes approximately 15 minutes. (Cost of EKG included in initial start up)
EKG appointments and physician appointments may be scheduled consecutively. In order for us to respect and properly serve every client, EKG appointment schedules are strictly adhered to - we may not be able to honor your appointment with the physician if you arrive late for your EKG.
Please allow 1 hour to 1 ½ hours for your initial appointment. This will allow you time to have your EKG, meet with our physician, receive introductory material and instructions, and review the prescribed medication.
