Cardiac CT Calcium Score
Cardiac calcium scoring tests can be used to determine the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart disease. The tests use a multi-slice CT scanner for the detection of small amounts of calcium or plaque in the coronary arteries. Images can show whether the coronary arteries are narrowed or blocked by any calcium or plaque build-up, which can be an indicator of heart disease. CT Cardiac Calcium scoring has been shown to be superior to standard treadmill stress testing for the diagnosis of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD).
- Highly Accurate
- Medically proven to detect heart disease without symptoms
Low Dose CT Lung Screening
Low-Dose CT lung screenings have proved to be an effective tool for early of lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer related death in the United States. Routine chest X-rays are often unable to detect lung cancers until they are of advanced stage. Low-Dose CT can greatly improve the likelihood of detection of early lung cancers, enabling treatment at a more curable stage.
- It is painless and non-invasive
- Low-Dose CT uses up to 90% less radiation than conventional CT chest scan
- Proven to reduce the number of deaths from lung cancer patients at high risk
- Often found in early stages
Whole Body MRI
A whole-body MRI scan looks at the body from head to toe to find cancers, inflammation, or obstructive process in the body. In the head, the exam can show brain masses, shrinkage, old strokes, the sinuses, and nasal cavities. In the neck, abnormalities in the lymph nodes, thyroid masses or arthritis in the cervical spine can be identified. In the chest, we check the heart for enlargement and the aorta for aneurysms. Moving to the abdomen and pelvis, we can evaluate the kidneys, liver, spleen, adrenal glands, gallbladder (gallstones), pancreas, bladder, uterus, and ovaries. We look at the spine to check for disc herniation and spinal stenosis, and in the extremities, arthritis in the joints. An additional exam of a specific area may be required if an abnormality is identified to obtain more detailed information.
- Highly Accurate
- Able to detect tumors, infections, musculoskeletal adnormalities, old strokes, and much more
- Quick with no radiation
Advanced Laboratory Diagnostics
Stop guessing. Start addressing. Most tests measure only 3-6 biomarkers. Marshall measures 40+ for a complete picture of your health, including advanced biomarkers rarely available in mainstream medicine. When reviewed with proper context, a true picture of your health emerges and a plan for optimization can be created.
- Hormone Balance: Testosterone (Free + Total), Thyroid (TSH + Free T3), Estradiol, IGF-1, SHBG
- Critical Nutrients: Vitamin D, Folate, Magnesium, B12, Iron, TIBC, Vitamin C
- Metabolic Status: Hba1c, Glucose, HDL Cholesterol
- Organ Health: Kidney Function, Liver Function, Bone Marrow / Blood Counts
- Key Risk Factors: hs-CRP, LDL, Apo B, Lipo a, Homocysteine
Genetic Fitness and Nutrition Testing
The body’s unique genetic makeup determines how it best reacts to specific diet and exercise strategies for weight management. The science of genetic testing can help identify the genes that dictate how the body processes carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and micro-nutrients and how patients respond to different types of exercise. Weight loss programs tailored to an individual’s DNA has been proven to be much more effective than one-size-fits-all programs because it takes the guesswork out of health management.
Food sensitivity testing
This at-home lab test measures your body’s immune response to 96 foods to help guide you on what types of food to prioritize in a two-part elimination diet.
Galleri - Early Cancer Detection Test
“Treating Cancer starts with knowing you have it.”
Today, most cancers are found too late and are often deadly. The earlier cancer is identified, the greater the chance of successful treatment and survival. Galleri can detect many of the unscreened cancers that cause 71% of cancer deaths every year. It can detect cancer signals across more than 50 types of cancer with a low-false positive rate of 0.5%. A simple blood draw and results within 10 days.

Dr. Mullins's Outlook for Galleri
Tell us about your practice and what makes it unique:
“I have a Concierge Practice with a heavy emphasis on longevity, anti-aging, and optimal living. I set up my practice as an alternative approach to conventional primary care. I tend to attract patients that are interested in proactively preventing chronic diseases, are willing to adjust lifestyle behaviors, and are interested in a healthcare model that promotes longevity and optimal, balance-based living.”
My practice utilizes hospitality principles:
- Is welcoming, friendly, and courteous.
- Is knowledgeable.

- Is well timed.
- Is flexible.
- Is consistent.
- Communicates effectively.
- Instills trust.
Why have you chosen to offer the Galleri Test to your patients?
“Prior to opening my practice, I practiced for 20 years in an Emergency Room setting. I know first-hand that we all are susceptible to the uncontrollable aspect of physiology and disease. Too often, I would discover, incidentally, a cancerous lesion on an x-ray that was being done for a different reason. So, what starts as a Flu, turns into an unsuspected cancer diagnosis.” These cancers are discovered very often, accidentally, and unfortunately, the cancer is in an advanced state.” Galleri Early Cancer Detection Testing now allows for screening for 50 types of cancer and can detect them in their earliest stages thereby increasing the likelihood for successful treatment and survival.”
Who do you recommend the Galleri Early Cancer Detection Test to?
“I recommend the test to all my patients 40 and older. I can think of no reason to not recommend this test.”
Do you have the infrastructure necessary to adequately perform, review, educate, and coordinate the results of the testing?
“The advantage I have over many offices is that my practice is small, efficient, and I have several locations. I am personally available 24/7 for my patients. I have put many layers of customer service and support in place to accommodate my patient. I look at every diagnostic test in real time and notify the patient personally. Many practices simply do not have the time or infrastructure to provide such personalized service.”
Do you have to be a member of Marshall Lifestyle Medicine to have the Galleri test performed?
“You do not!” I am such a firm believer that early detection and prevention is necessary, I will provide the test to all comers. I am hopeful that they are also exposed to the strategies to live more optimal lives during their experience with me and my staff.”
Please Share your Personal Experience with the Galleri Test:
“Prior to offering the test to my patients, I had the test performed myself. We made a video showing the process, what to expect, how results would be delivered, and how simple the blood draw process was. When the camera went off, my mind immediately switched to concern – for myself! I may be a physician, but I am also a human. I became concerned that perhaps the test would find something. I had not been to a doctor in years. I was concerned that I may have cancer and what would happen if the results revealed something. I was scared! When I received the test results “No Cancer Signal Detected” I was relieved beyond belief. I slept like a baby that night and woke up ready to take on the world. I packed my healthy lunch, went to the gym, and called my daughters to tell them I loved them.” You cannot put a price on peace of mind.”
