New Laboratory Test at Coral Gables Executive Physicians

Coral Gables Executive Physicians currently offers an array of Diagnostic and Laboratory tests and this month we are excited to announce that we have a new Laboratory test to offer – The ColonSentry® test.

The ColonSentry® test is a simple blood test for assessing individual Colorectal cancer (CRC), the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States. The early CRC dietetic is not a stand-alone screening test, but rather a test that is intended for patients who prefer minimally invasive exams and specifically decline colonoscopy.

The test is especially useful for patients younger than fifty years old who want to asses their risk for Colorectal cancer or patients who are above the age of fifty and are either between screening colonoscopies or have not wanted to perform a colonoscopy yet.

Forbes recently published an article entitled “Am I Working Too Hard And If So Why?” The article examines the commonly used “Workaholic” expression and answers the very important question of whether being a workaholic leads to short and long term health problems.
