If I feel more information is needed for accurate assessment, I often will prescribe additional testing. This can include any of the following: outside bloodwork (we do not perform venipuncture in our office), advanced stool analysis, salivary hormone testing and diagnostic imaging (x-ray, MRI, computerized thermal imaging, etc). Occasionally, we find that a referral to an MD is the most appropriate course of action for additional testing. We make every attempt to work collaboratively with your primary physician. If you don’t have a primary doctor (MD or DO), we encourage you to get one. We can refer you to physicians in various specialties if needed.
Dr. Barsten is our health expert. Our family has consulted with him for many years for a variety of ailments from heart disease, thyroid issues, headaches and arthritis. We always walk away inspired and armed with solutions that really work. He will often recommend therapies that are simple and free.
Following Dr. Barsten’s advice after major surgery last year was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My surgeon was amazed at the speed and extent of my healing. He said at 3 weeks after surgery, I was where the typical patient is at 3 months! The benefits from following Dr. Barsten’s advice have extended far beyond healing from the procedure. I feel energetic, old blemishes on my skin have faded, my digestion has improved and overall I feel better than ever. I am grateful that I found my way to Dr. Barsten and would highly recommend him to anybody wanting to address specific health concerns or invest in their overall well being.
Dr. Barsten is the smartest and most intuitive care provider I have ever met. He has helped me over the last two decades with dozens of issues that MDs had absolutely no idea how to treat. In fact, I went to Dr. Barsten initially because my MD put me on so many antibiotics, they had killed all of the good gut bacteria and created a host of problems. Dr. Barsten is up on all of the most current, independent research and I would trust him with my life. He is brilliant!
The class IV laser treatments at HealthQuest have significantly lessened my osteoarthritis pain in both my knees, and I am much more stable on the stairs as well as on the golf course!
In 1995, Dr. Greg Barsten gave a lecture on nutrition and cancer at The Cancer Support and Education Center in Menlo Park. I had just finished radiation treatment for my third bout with metastatic breast cancer. I asked him to work with me, and he’s been working with me ever since. Well, now it’s 2012, and I’ve turned out to be my oncologist’s poster child. I’m not saying that Dr. Barsten works miracles, but I sure feel like he’s worked one with me.
I’ve been receiving annual bone density scans. The recent combination of Dr. Barsten’s guidance on diet, nutrition, specific exercises, etc., has made a huge difference, an incredible difference. My most recent scan showed I was not only able to stop the bone loss, but actually gain bone density back. This is something my OB-GYN physician called both remarkable and surprising, given that I did not take prescription medications for osteoporosis. I am so glad I listened to you. I cannot thank you enough.
