We have no restrictions on additional services offered by our Partners, provided they are bona fide and not too controversial. Check with us for specifics.

Provided you are in compliance with local and federal regulations, you are free to charge your patients directly for blood tests.

In addition to blood, you are free to use whatever tests will enable you to best manage your patients' levels and symptoms. For your blood tests, we will work with Quest and/or Labcorp to create custom panels at deeply discounted prices.

Affiliation with the PhysioAge brand

Name recognition of the PhysioAge brand is increasing as we expand our web presence, advertising and event participation. Affiliation with our NYC clinic and our nationwide network of physicians will convey our endorsement: even patients who have never heard of PhysioAge will associate you with a high level of quality assurance, standardization and expertise after visiting our website. You will have received hands-on training by Drs. Livesey and Raffaele, two well-known experts in the field who opened the first and largest age management practice in the northeast. Through ongoing clinical support, your patients can tap into their expertise.

 

Referrals from PhysioAge.com

We will refer prospective patients from your regional area to your practice. We are investing to improve and maintain our search listings in Google, Yahoo!, and other major search engines. This investment will pay off for all of our Partners. You will have your own section of PhysioAge.com with site photos, staff photos, services provided, etc.

 

Expert marketing support

We’ll develop and manage a comprehensive marketing campaign specifically designed to attract patient prospects in your area. We’re currently investing in a market research study of the most effective keywords, ads, and channels for our practice. This study will actually tell us which ad combinations actually resulted in new patients. We’ll use this market intelligence to focus your marketing budget on the most effective ad combinations so you get the most out of every dollar.

 

Seminar management

Monthly Hormone Therapy seminars are a proven way to introduce prospective patients to your practice and establish your reputation as an expert in your field. In addition to providing a 45-slide PowerPoint deck, we’ll use a Facebook ad campaign to fill your seats.

Biomarker Testing Questions

Close All | Open All

Our basic package requires only three devices: Sphygmocor, Cutometer and Spirometer. To generate a report you’ll need to purchase or lease all three devices.

Patient cost will depend on the equipment you choose to acquire and the blood tests they choose to take. Suggested retail price using the four required pieces of equipment is $195. This includes CardioAge, CutoAge, NeuroAge, PulmoAge and handgrip strength. Adding blood panels could cost significantly more, depending on tests ordered. Some insurance plans will cover the optional Quest/Labcorp panels. You are free to charge your patients any price you wish.

Of the PhysioAge components, TelomerAge and ImmunoAge require separate blood tests. See Health Status Indicators for a detailed breakdown of the tests required for each biomarker.

All biomarkers related to bone density, body composition, oxygen comsumption and CIMT rely on optional equipment (bone densitometer, InBody and ultrasound, respectively). You are not required to purchase or lease any of this optional equipment. However, Partners who adopt the PhysioAge brand must use the body composition machine in their practice.

The biomarker equipment fits on a standard computer cart, which must be situated next to an exam table. Both the Sphygmocor and the Cutometer occupy a space of about one square foot, and they sit stacked together.
