Diagnostics

We collaborate with many mobile diagnostic services including:

 Labs – a huge selection e.g. complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, PT/INR

 Xray – e.g. chest, wrist, knee, hip

 EKG

 Echocardiogram

 Ultrasound – abdominal, renal, bladder, carotid, extremity ultrasound

  Sleep Oxygenation Studies

While we do not have financial ties to any of these services, they are responsive to our orders within a day or two, and sometimes within hours!! This means that when you need it most, you have timely results and subsequent treatment in the comfort of your own home. Moreover, and most importantly, we are able to limit hospitalization and ER visits.

CASE EXAMPLES:

1. Your facility staff call us stating “Edna R has experiencing increased falls, fever and lower abdominal pain for the last day”. If Edna R appears to be clinically stable, we can immediately order a urinalysis and blood work to determine if there is an underlying infection, and upon receiving the results, discuss the issues with you and/or your family and initiate treatment.

2. During your visit with your primary care provider, you complain of increasing cough and mild shortness of breath. On exam, you have abnormal lung sounds. The provider can order a Chest X-Ray to determine whether you have pneumonia and upon receipt of results, discuss them with you and/or your family and initiate treatment before your symptoms worsen.
