Pulmonary Function Test: Assesses how well your lungs work by measuring how much air you inhale, how much you exhale and how quickly you exhale. This common office test is used to diagnose asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other conditions that affect breathing.
Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Test (CPET): The full cardiopulmonary system is assessed during a CPET by measuring the amount of oxygen your body is using, the amount of carbon dioxide it is producing, your breathing pattern, and electrocardiogram (EKG) while you are riding a stationary bicycle.
Diabetic Screening: Blood sugar level, Hemoglobin A1C, and 2 hour glucose tolerance test
PAD (Peripheral Arterial Disease) Screening:. PAD, commonly known as hardening of the arteries, causes the medium and large arteries of the legs to become blocked. PAD not only causes pain and disability, it also is associated with a much higher risk of heart disease. A quick non invasive test, called ABI, uses a handheld Doppler(ultrasound), visual pulse wave recording, and systolic pressures at multiple arteries to assess your arterial health and screen for blockages.
24 Hour Blood Pressure Monitor: Portable device that can diagnose high blood pressure (hypertension). Blood pressure monitors are worn for 24 hours, while blood pressure readings are obtained throughout the day.
24 Hour Holter Monitor: Portable device that can diagnose abnormal heart rhythms, such as palpitations.
Echocardiogram: An Echo is a painless test that uses sound waves to create pictures of your heart. This test gives information about the size and shape of your heart and how well your heart’s chambers and valves are working.
Nuclear Stress Test: Measures blood flow to your heart at rest and while your heart is working harder as a result of exertion or medication. This test provides images that can show areas of low blood flow through the heart and damaged heart muscle.
Full Body Skin Cancer Screenings: Periodic skin examinations are the key to diagnosing skin cancer at its earliest stage, when it is most easily cured.
Venous Insufficiency Testing:
The veins in your body play an important role in circulation, carrying blood from your various parts of your body back to your heart. Yet, as people age, problems can develop in the veins and cause a variety of complications. In fact, one in three Americans over the age of 45 has some kind of vein disease.
Early symptoms may seem minor. However, they can become more serious – and even
life-threatening – if they are not treated. Which is why it is important to be aware of symptoms and seek medical advice at the earliest sign of a problem.
Immunizations: Influenza, Hepatitis B, Pneumonia, Gardasil, Tetanus, Tdap, and Zostavax
Allergy Testing & Treatment: This 20 minute non invasive skin test diagnoses allergies to 72 different allergans found in the Northeast, including food. Treatment options include immunotherapy injections and sublingual allergy drops.
Take Home Sleep Studies: Portable device used to aid in the diagnosis of sleep related disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Symptoms of OSA include daytime sleepiness, restless sleep, and morning headaches.
Attended Sleep Studies: Diagnoses sleep related disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Central Sleep Apnea, and Narcolepsy.
Calorie Counter/Resting Metabolic Rate: This test is used in determining how many calories are burned at rest. This test is commonly used by dietitians to determine an individual’s caloric needs.
Ultrasounds: Abdominal, Pelvic, AAA (Aortic Aneurysm), Carotid, Thyroid, Venous & Arterial
Nerve Study: Non Invasive test that diagnoses nerve abnormalities and diseases due to Diabetes, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Injuries
Audiometry: An audiometry evaluation is a painless, noninvasive hearing test that measures a person’s ability to hear different sounds, pitches, or frequencies.
