More than 10 million Americans have osteoporosis, but most of them do not even know it. Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to become thin and weak. Often there are no symptoms until a bone fracture occurs. A fracture can be painful and may have a major impact on your lifestyle.
The Anti-Aging Osteoporosis and Bone Health Program provides diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis for women and men. We balance the latest technology in bone density measurement with a personal, caring approach to ensure that you receive bone care with the attention and respect you deserve.
A full Medical History and Osteoporosis Risk Factor Assessment forms a pivotal part of your Bone Health Assessment. To find out if your bones are thinning, a bone mineral density exam called a DEXA (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry) is done. This simple, painless procedure, which takes about 20 minutes, is used to measure the density of bones in the hips, spine, wrist and whole body. Currently, bone density testing is the best way to determine if any specific steps need to be taken to protect bone health, or if some type of treatment will be needed. X-rays may be ordered if needed. Laboratory testing for vitamin and mineral levels relevant to your bone health are completed.
Our customized Bone Health program is based on your Medical History, Risk Factors, lab results and DEXA scores and consists of diet, exercise program, nutritional bone building supplements and if relevant, a medication prescription.

I had unexplained weight gain over the past year that was becoming depressing. No one would take the time to find out why it was happening. Dr. Barreto really looked into my concerns and lab results to find out what was going on. Now I am on a plan that includes supplements and exercise and I can see the results I have been looking for. – Debbie D.
Who knew that my hormones being out of balance were affecting my sleep! Dr. Barreto fixed my problem and now I am sleeping like I did when I was a teenager. – Jim R.
This is my second “Wellness Exam” through MDVIP. Dr. Barreto and her staff provide a thorough process in a very professional and courteous manner. I appreciate the comprehensiveness and how the results are reviewed. Dr. Barreto provides a means of improving any less than good issues and she and her staff follow-up to see that they are effective. I am very pleased with the process. Thank You,
Enjoyed the visit with Dr. Barreto. She explained everything completely. Good to know how everything in the body works.
Dr. Barreto explained my lab results to me very thoroughly and when I told her I didn’t want to be dependent on medications for the rest of my life she came up with a plan of supplements to address my pre-diabetes. I am so happy she considered alternatives to meet my needs and the needs of my body. – Sue H.
Good deal works great!

My experience has been wonderful. Dr Barreto is terrific. The program has empowered my health and given me lots of help. I feel well taken care of!
When I explained to Dr. Barreto that I was exhausted all the time and couldn’t seem to find a solution to my fatigue, she took a special interest in me and ordered a comprehensive hormone panel. She really listened to my concerns and now we have my hormones on track and I feel amazing! – Stephanie P.
I was starting to feel and look older than my true age and I didn’t like it. Dr. Barreto gave me a new sense of self with fresh new energy. I feel 10 years younger and I am excited about the future. – Betty B.
