OCTOBER BUSINESS: Personal Health Partners
With the help of Personal Health Partners, health-conscious individuals are able to take their personal health into their own hands.
“We specialize in low-cost testing that doesn’t require a doctor’s order,” said PHP Clinical Director Nan Bertone, R.N. “People can come in and ask for whatever test they want, and it’s very low cost compared to other competitors. That’s because our focus is on getting them the information they need to stay healthy.”
Test results can provide valuable information for early detection of diabetes, heart, kidney and liver disease. Oklahomans, especially, have high rates of diabetes and the conditions related to it.
PHP, also offers advice to clients on what kinds of tests they should undergo, depending on their own health concerns. PHP performs testing for individuals and large groups by appointment and provides results directly to the patient with accompanying educational materials that are easy to understand and can be shared with health care providers.
Tests are custom designed for the client’s needs and may include basic body functions, vitamins and hormones. Although no doctor’s order is needed, patients may still bring in an order if they have one.
In addition to its location at 30 E. Campbell St., Suite 270, in Edmond, PHP also offers services such as infusions and injections to Tulsa area residents at its main location at 8010 S. 101st E. Ave., Suite 200, Tulsa. PHP also processes tests for several national laboratories at both locations.
“On a regular basis we do large events for companies and organizations and can test 400-500 people in a couple of days,” Bertone said. “We draw blood, do testing and send results directly to the participant.”
PHP can bill directly to employers or organizations, to their insurance provider or from participants via cash, check or credit card.
“The reason we’re here is so people can take care of themselves personally as opposed to allowing others to take care of them all the time,” Bertone said. “We focus on personal health and wellness. People need to know what their blood test numbers are in order to measure their health status or measure their success when participating in health improvement.”
