What is chelation?

Chelation uses injections of a special chemical agent called EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) to “grab” and bind heavy metals in the blood so they can be eliminated from the body.

Approved by the FDA for use in cases of lead poisoning, chelation is also used by the team at Medex Diagnostic & Treatment Center to remove traces of other heavy metals that could potentially cause health issues and interfere with normal, healthy cell and tissue function. The number and frequency of injections are determined on a patient-by-patient basis to achieve the best possible results.

What physical exam services are at Medex Diagnostic & Treatment Center?

The team at Medex Diagnostic & Treatment Center provides physical examination services required by employers and schools, as well as your own personal medical needs.

For physical exams required by your employer or your child’s school, be sure to provide the office with any necessary paperwork so it can be completed during the exam. Also be sure to indicate if the exam is for work when you schedule your appointment so the team can make sure any pre-exam requirements like blood work or other tests can be completed during your visit.

As a multidisciplinary practice featuring doctors in a range of subspecialties, Dr. Benyaminova can refer you to another doctor at Medex Diagnostic & Treatment Center if she detects any problems during your exam.
