We have the convenience of having a hospital standard lab machine with lab technician for our patients. Most of your annual physical labs are available including complete blood count (CBC), comprehensive metabolic profile (CMP) (which includes sugar level, electrolytes, kidney and liver functions), Thyroid functions studies, Cholesterol (Lipid Panel), and urinalysis. We also have specialized labs such as Hemoglobin A1C (for diabetics), Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA – to screen for prostate disease and cancer), and Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR – for inflammatory diseases).
We provide a state of the art X-ray machine and certified radiology technician to perform your basic radiograph X-rays which may include chest xray to evaluate acute disease such as pneumonia and other lung conditions, spinal and extremity xray to evaluate musculoskeletal disorders, arthritis, and acute fractures and dislocations. This quick procedure may be done during your office visit or scheduled at a convenient time for you.
A procedure that uses high frequency ultrasound waves to evaluate your heart. Echocardiograms are performed to asses the size of you heart (both the thickness of the muscle and size of the ventricles), pumping strength (how well your heart pumps blood), valve problems such as leaky or difficult to open valves, problems inside the chambers (ventricles) such as blood clots or tumors, as well as if there any holes between the walls of your heart. There are many reasons why an echocardiogram may be obtained. Only a physician or PA can determine whether you need this test. Your physician or PA will base the decision to perform this test on your symptoms, your medical history and your physical examination. A thorough examination usually takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. All echocardiograms and interpreted by a board certified cardiologist (heart doctor specialist).
Carotid, AAA, Peripheral Arterial & Venous Ultrasound
Ultrasound images are captured in real-time and can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels. An ultrasound of the body’s two carotid arteries, which are located on each side of the neck and carry blood from the heart to the brain, provide detailed pictures of these blood vessels. Arterial ultrasound provides pictures of the arteries throughout the body that carry blood away from the heart. Venous ultrasound provides pictures of the veins throughout the body that carry blood back to the heart. A Doppler ultrasound study may be part of a carotid ultrasound examination. Doppler ultrasound is a special ultrasound technique that evaluates blood as it flows through a blood vessel, including the body’s major arteries and veins in the abdomen, arms, legs and neck.
EndoPAT (Non-Invasive Earliest Cardiovascular Disease Detection)
The earliest indicator of cardiovascular disease is endothelial dysfunction. The presence of endothelial dysfunction in the coronary circulation highly predicts cardiovascular events in people in early stages of disease, beyond any conventional risk factors. EndoPat looks for heart disease by using sensors that measure blood flow through a patient’s fingers. See More Info…
