DOCS Outside the Box! is excited to announce it is expanding its COVID relief efforts with Long Hauler Index Testing. DOCS has partnered with Innovative Bioanalysis, a full-service Reference and Bioanalytical Laboratory, where they will be able to offer lab testing to measure COVID Long Hauler Index. The testing is for anyone having trouble fully recovering from COVID-19.
Partnering with the experts at Innovative Bioanalysis allows us to offer another opportunity to create a successful protocol for our patients and find relief from COVID symptoms.”

For the convenience of patients, DOCS will now offer two lab panels to test and see if the patient is a COVID Long Hauler.
The Cytokine14 Panel will measure certain cytokines in the body where patients can be successfully identified as Long Haulers and a protocol can be implemented.
The Neutralizing AB test will indicate a correlation between Neutralizing Antibodies (nAbs) and protective immunity against SARS-CoV-2 since nAbs are the only markers shown to correlate directly with protection.
DOCS Outside the Box! has provided care for over three thousand COVID-19 patients since the initial outbreak reached Florida in 2020. DOCS has implemented several protocols to treat those suffering from COVID symptoms including Regeneron Monoclonal Antibody Therapy for the Delta variant. They also launched a concierge medical service to provide onsite COVID testing for small businesses and large employers in the St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay area.
