“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
– Benjamin Franklin
Do you feel healthy but want to ensure you stay that way?
Modrn med offers comprehensive lab testing and an in depth assessment of your physical, mental/emotional health to prevent disease.
When working with patients who want to ensure they stay healthy we start by doing a review of their family history and personal medical history to see what they are at highest risk for.
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the US. For men and women.
One person dies every 34 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease (1).
50% of people who have their FIRST heart attack will not survive it.
We do not like to use fear as a motivator but most people do not know or understand these facts.
Which is important because: Cardiovascular disease is preventable.
This is why we make it a priority to reduce the risk for heart disease for all of our longevity patients.
Key drivers for cardiovascular disease include:
Elevated blood pressure
Elevated APO B/ LDL-P levels
Diabetes/ metabolic issues
Why the "standard of care" is not cutting it:
In medicine the standard of care is to use an ASCVD (atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease) or cardiovascular disease risk calculator. This factors in your age, gender, race, blood pressures, total cholesterol and a few other markers to assess your risk of having a first time ASCVD event.
However, since heart disease is preventable, at modrn med we believe is essential to aggressively screen for and treat early signs of heart disease and not wait until it inevitably develops or progresses.
We don't want you to have a cardiovascular event over the next 10 years, but we also don't want you to have a cardiovascular event over the next 30 or 40 + years.
We don't believe in waiting until your 10 year risk of ASCVD elevates to a level that "warrants" therapy. We think that treating early and aggressively is modrn medicine.
Insulin resistance is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and type 2 diabetes.
Insulin resistance is also preventable.
Comprehensive metabolic testing
Insulin, oral glucose tolerance tests, HbA1C
Continuous glucose monitors
Advanced cardiac testing (coronary artery calcium score, APO B, Lp(a) and more)
Liver, kidney and basic metabolic tests
Hormone testing (your hormone levels can increase or decrease the risk for heart disease)
Genetic testing (APO E, MTHFR)
Are you on a bunch of supplements but aren't sure if they are right for you?
We will review your supplement list and optimize it for your family history, personal medical history, symptoms and goals
Body composition review:
Based on your body composition (how much of your body is made up of fat vs muscle), we will give recommendations on nutrition and exercise to reach your goals.

Dr. Mary does what most doctors don't do (I've been to top specialists over the past 12 years with no solution). She integrates mind, body, & spirit and ensures her patients are aligned in all areas. She asks questions, she allows you to speak and she is committed to finding the root issue. Highly intelligent, highly compassionate and she has assembled a remarkable staff, who is always happily available to assist when needed.
I can't say enough great things about Dr. Mary. I'm just fortunate I'm able to work with her. She's helped me far beyond the physical, and for once in my life, I look forward to every doctor visit. Thank you, Dr. Mary & MODRN Med! xx
