If you’re one of the 40% of Americans who will make a resolution this year, chances are you’ll be part of the 92% that fails to keep it. Not-so-fun-fact? We couldn’t agree more, and have set out to make that statistic so 2017.
So why the struggle? Instead of tailoring a fitness plan to your own unique age, fitness level, and goals, you decide to follow the program your body-builder friend Dave swears by. Instead of taking time to find healthy food options you don’t despise eating, you decide to cut all carbs after reading an article online. February rolls around, your resolve weakens. and you chow down on pizza and potato chips.
The reality is…you’re not going to find the answer to your problems off of a Google search, nor discover anything you don’t already know.And that’s where we step in.
We founded Forward to provide you with personalized primary care, combining world-class doctors with advanced medical technology including genetics, cancer screening & wellness tracking. We give you a personal doctor who takes the time to get to know you and your health needs in a 60–90 minute initial appointment. Results from blood tests are returned within 12 minutes and reviewed alongside your doctor, and a personalized genetic test is conducted based off of your history and risk factors.
