Office Breath Testing Instructions and Video

As of August, 2020, we are resuming scheduled lactulose breath testing, and breath testing with other sugars to detect maldigestion, in the offices in Fullerton and Mission Viejo.  The SIBO lactulose breath test takes approximately 2 hours.  The testing in Fullerton will be on certain weekday mornings, and in Mission Viejo on certain Saturdays and Sundays.  We will be using a process that will involve patients collecting the breath samples while in exam rooms, without staff present, to make this as safe as possible for both patients and our staff.

Fullerton address: 1837 Sunnycrest Drive, Fullerton, CA 92835

Mission Viejo address: 27871 Medical Center Road, suite 240, Mission Viejo, CA 92691
