My first visit was excellent and all of the staff were welcoming and knowledgeable. Shelley (or Shelby, forgive me I can’t remember) at the front desk was great. Travis was really personable and a good phlebotomist. And Stefanie and Nathan are at the top of their game. I look forward to my follow up and to beginning therapy that will lead to optimization of health!

I’ve been on TRT with Optimize U now for over two years. They do a great job of taking care of you and staying on top of your bloodwork. I also absolutely love their infrared sauna and their cryo-chamber. If you’ve never tried it, not the most fun thing to do but you feel so rejuvenated after walking out of it. If you’re looking for any of their services that they offer, I would highly suggest you give them a call or go in and talk to them. The staff is absolutely amazing every time.

I just did a consultation and signed up for services here and had the best experience. I've been meaning to get my levels checked for some time, but kept putting it off as I thought it would be an uncomfortable experience. I was treated so well throughout the entire experience, having the labs drawn was convenient, my consultation and lab review was thorough and she listened to me and answered all my questions. I was never pressured to move forward with anything. I'm really beating myself up at this point that I didn't go in years ago.

My wife and I have been going to Optimize U for nearly a year. It started out by me going in for a IV hydration therapy session, which was amazingly beneficial. We ended up trying and loving cryotherapy also. We decided to have our blood panels done and both found out we had some issues that needed attention... it's been amazing for both of us. Nathan, Travis, everyone there is great

Stopped in here on a whim due to an interest about Cryotherapy. Staff was extremely friendly to my 13 year old and myself. Nathan was very knowledgeable about the Cryotherapy and walked me through my first go in the chamber. After the treatment I immediately felt better and continued to improve my mood and physically for a few hours. I stay pretty beat up due to working out and this eased some aches and pains even into the next day. In speaking with Nathan I feel they can provide some services and products that I can benefit from. I plan on doing the yearly membership and driving the 150 miles round trip at least every other week!

Husband & I went for our first time today for some Cryotherapy action. Super impressed with the business, staff, location, facility, and experience! From the moment we walked in we were greeted with smiling, welcoming, and knowledgeable staff who educated us on the process and walked us through the therapy. The Cryotherapy was intense in the best way. They offer a wide range of services that I am sure we will partake in again in the future. All services are highly economical. I thoroughly suggest you check out Optimize U for your needs. You won't be disappointed!
