From the moment that I stepped in this building, the staff have been amazing. I got bloodwork done and it was back in about 10 days. The co owner (if I'm remembering correctly, Matt) was super thorough in explaining my results and what everything meant. And I loved that there were a couple things that I could improve but I wasn't being pressured into anything. He threw out options and steps forward IF I wanted to proceed but made it clear that it was my decision and didn't make me feel bad about saying no. They also have really cool recovery machines that you can use for your body at very reasonable prices!! I would recommend them ANY day of the week!!! Thank y'all again SO much!!! 💙

I have had a fantastic experience with Optimize U. I needed someone to go deeper than traditional medicine does and figure out some things and I think Matt has nailed it. The recovery services like the cryo unit and the infrared sauna are a great complement to everything else they do. Highly recommend Optimize U!!

I had the best experience with this team. Finally someone to take a deeper dive into healthcare services that are often overlooked because they are not covered under a typical insurance plan. Top notch staff & great recovery services (like infrared sauna). Highly, highly recommend this company!!

Joshua, Matt and the rest of the team have set up an unparalleled environment and monthly subscription program to help men (and women) age more powerfully and safely. Their facility is warm, inviting, and full of cutting-edge equipment. It makes the perfect complement to my exercise routine, and their lab/blood work procedures are through and very helpful. From testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) to infrared sauna and cold plunge, Optimize U is a one-stop shop for bio-hacking and age-related optimization. Highly recommend!
