WellnessFX Annual Checkup has landed and sure has made a big splash! Our new service (FREE for a limited time) lets you take control of your health by accessing and owning your data.
But what is the experience really like? Sure, it’s free, getting your blood drawn is quick and easy, and you’ll be able to access your health data from the palm of your hand, but is it worth your time?
We say YES. But, of course, do you expect us to suggest any differently? The best way to tell if WellnessFX is for you is through customer experience and word of mouth. We continually bring you these member stories right here on our blog. We encourage you to assess the data for yourself. It’ll be practice for when you get your blood results back!
Blogger. Novelist. Student doctor. Husband. Health freak. Nature-lover. That’s me.
You might not think you know me, but unless you’re new to the blog (which is great: welcome!), we’ve met before. I’ve been writing for WellnessFX since last August and have brought you testimonials, health news, exciting updates, and button-preserving recipes to get you through the holidays alive. So, yeah – we’ve met.
I’ve long been interested in health, fitness, and writing and I landed the perfect opportunity of contributing to the WellnessFX’s media team shortly after sending off my applications for medical school. I’ll be attending the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the fall. I’m truly excited about taking what I’ve learned about preventive medicine during my time with WellnessFX and applying it in my professional career.
Now that we’ve been formerly introduced, I have a story to share. It’s time for my draw. This is the WellnessFX experience. Uncensored and uncut.
From day one, WellnessFX has been about options. When you sign up for one of our packages, you can read through bios of many different physicians, dietitians, and personal trainers to see which one most closely meets your needs. This year we released Performance and Thyroid packages for those who want to go deeper into their diagnostics. The whole point of tracking and measuring is capitalizing on the things important to you, and WellnessFX gets that.
So we set out to offer even more customizability. The diagnostics portion of WellnessFX is now available starting at the low price of $149! By unbundling the diagnostics and the consultations, we’re allowing our members greater flexibility in their options. The best part is that purchasing WellnessFX unbundled doesn’t limit you: there’s always the option to add on a consult later for a past blood test.

I think it is important to point out that each year Americans continue to spend more out-of-pocket money on health services beyond those offered within the traditional health-care system. There’s a very important message being sent here. People are actively searching for “more” when it comes to their healthcare. Gone are the days that patients are routinely given comprehensive detailed laboratory assessments. In fact, the average health care practitioner spends very little time with his or her patients. A 45-minute office visit to the doctor that includes 5 minutes with the doctor and 40 minutes waiting is dangerous to one’s health. This poses a serious problem and, I believe, is one of the main reasons why people end up in an office like mine.
People are seeking healthcare solutions and practitioners that can provide them with comprehensive evaluations, carefully thought out treatment plans and non-invasive, early detection screening options. It is this transformed mindset that sets up the stage for “functional” medicine, and comprehensive evaluations in which people seek objective analyses such as lab tests with conservative support that includes nutritional therapy, diet, and lifestyle change.
A couple months ago we gave you a glimpse at some of the things our members say about WellnessFX and their experience. As we roll out a new Performance Panel and our membership continues to grow, we think it’s more and more important to give people a glimpse of what the WellnessFX experience is all about.
Below you’ll find some of the best comments from December feedback. Here are some of the things we heard the most:
We hoped you’ve enjoyed our week of testimonials! We really do have awesome members and just wanted to take some time out to highlight them, their awesome achievements, and give a real picture of what the WellnessFX experience is all about.
To cap off the week, we have a post from a veteran! Kristin Newman wrote about her experience nearly a year ago, when our blog was just a baby, which you can find here and here. We believe WellnessFX should be used as a way to track an individual’s on-going progress to achieve and maintain wellness, as the body is a constantly changing entity. So we’re happy to congratulate Kristin on getting her first follow-up!
