what will happen

What will happen after First Consultation

After your first consultation you can purchase the recommended tests on Order Test Kits-page.  You can also do laboratory tests elsewhere if you do not wish to purchase Genova test kits. Dr Shedd will provide you with  more information regarding Genova test kits and other alternative laboratory tests.

All laboratory test kits sold on our website are provided by Genova Diagnostics, a fully accredited medical laboratory, which specializes in clinical laboratory services and helps healthcare providers in personalizing treatments for patients. 


Your test kits come with detailed instructions on how to proceed with the sample needed and how to ship it safely. We recommend sending the samples by next day delivery.

Laboratory results take 2-3 weeks to be completed. When your laboratory results are ready you will receive an email from Dr Shedd. You must then need to book a telephone consultation to discuss the results. After your telephone consultation you will receive a detailed treatment plan, supplement recommendations and hormone prescriptions.

  • to alter your ongoing bio-identical hormone treatment
