We understand your time is valuable, so at Great City Medical, we offer many in-office diagnostic tests. This saves you the hassle of having to schedule an appointment with an off-site lab and helps you get your results faster – ultimately, getting you better faster, too.
Our on-site diagnostic services include:
The gold standard when it comes to identifying a wide range of disorders in the body, blood tests can be used to determine the presence of infection, diabetes, coronary heart disease, anemia, and sexually transmitted diseases.
Blood test results can identify whether vital organs such as your kidneys, liver, thyroid, and heart are functioning as they should – or whether medical intervention is necessary, in the form of medications or other treatments.
An electrocardiogram (EKG) is a quick, noninvasive, and painless diagnostic test used to identify heart rhythm abnormalities. Electrodes placed on the skin of your chest are used to record the electrical activity of your heart while you remain still. The entire test generally takes 30 minutes or less.
The doctors at Great City Medical may recommend you undergo EKG testing if they suspect heart disease or if you are suffering from symptoms such as chest pain or heart palpitations.
A common pulmonary function test, a spirometry measures the volume of air you breathe to determine the health of your lungs. It is a simple diagnostic test that involves breathing into a special mouthpiece to pinpoint how much air you inhale and exhale, as well as how quickly you exhale.
Spirometry can detect signs of lung disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and more.
Ultrasound is a safe and easy imaging test in which a hand-held device is placed on top of the skin, sending sound waves into the body that can create a picture of internal organs, tissue, and bodily systems.
Most people are familiar with ultrasounds used to monitor the health of a fetus in pregnant women. However, there are many conditions and issues that can be diagnosed with the use of ultrasound. These include blood flow obstructions and tumors, as well as problems with the heart, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and kidneys.
