Lab and Diagnostics

Here at Care Station Medical Group, it is imperative to have fast and accurate information to help determine the best course of action for our patients’ medical treatment. It is why we’ve invested in state-of-the-art lab facilities to ensure we can deliver the best care possible.

Whether the needs are routine, urgent, or for employment we have the ability to process just about anything the Provider needs to know.

Lab – We are able to examine basic blood workups as a part of a routine physical, or more comprehensive tests looking to diagnose a specific illness.

ECG – Heart health is important to monitor and we’re able to provide an Echocardiogram as a part of our heart health examinations.

Ultrasound – This is a safe imaging procedure that uses sound waves to create images of organs and structures within the body.

Available Ultrasounds

Abdomen, Aorta, Arterial-Bilateral, Carotid, Echo, Limited Retro, Pelvic (Female), Pelvic/Prostate (Male), Testicular, Thyroid, Venous-Bilateral

X-Ray – This is a quick imaging technique that allows doctors to see parts of the body below the surface of the skin to determine the integrity of items like bones.

Drug and Alcohol Screening – As a part of our Occupational Health Services we are able to provide the necessary evaluation of worker’s health conditions needed for DOT certifications.

COVID-19 Screening – We are able to provide rapid results to COVID-19 concerns and provide the necessary documentation for travel.

Our primary concern is to deliver effective treatment for our patients, and we’re proud to offer the necessary lab and diagnostics tools necessary to deliver the quality of care we aspire to provide.

Available Testing Services

Allergy Testing – An allergy test is an exam performed by a medical provider to determine if your body has an allergic reaction to a known substance. Along with your medical history, allergy tests may be able to confirm whether a particular substance you touch, breathe or eat is causing symptoms. The test identifies allergens, like mold, pet dander, bee stings and peanuts. During allergy skin tests, your skin is exposed to suspected allergy causing substances (allergens) by a healthcare provider and is then observed for signs of an allergic reaction. Signa of an allergic reaction may include a wheal (raised mark), rash or other reactions. The results can help you take steps to manage allergies.

 Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) Test – The ankle-brachial index test compares blood flow in the ankles and arms, detecting poor circulation that can be caused by plaque buildup. During the ankle-brachial index test, inflatable cuffs are used on your arms and ankles to measure your blood pressure. The test is quick and painless. This test can be very useful as one component of making a diagnosis of a condition like peripheral artery disease.

 Bone Density Test – Used to measure the strength of your bones. It’s a tool that that helps your doctor diagnose decreased bone mass (osteopenia) and weak, brittle bones that are at the highest risk of breaking (osteoporosis). A bone density test is similar to an x-ray.

 Stress Echocardiogram Test – An ultrasound of your heart taken before and after exercise. It produces moving images that show how well your heart functions under stress.

 Nuclear Stress Test – Is a test which helps diagnose and monitor cardiac abnormalities for those who cannot tolerate a treadmill stress test or with high suspicion of heart disease. A special camera takes pictures of blood flow in and around the heart in two phases. The first set of images are taken at rest (before injection of medication). A second set of images are taken after medication injection to visualize the heart under stressful conditions.

 Treadmill Stress Test – Helps determine how well your heart responds during times of stress and exercise. It typically involves walking/ jogging on a treadmill while hooked up to an EKG to monitor your heart’s activity.

 Cognitrax – Serves as an instrument to detect early cognitive impairments and identify symptoms , behaviors and comorbidities that can impact health. It is a computerized test with a series of questions.

 Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) – Evaluates the function of your peripheral nerves. An NCS can help detect the presence and extent of peripheral nerve damage. Your peripheral nerves are the nerves that lie outside of your brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).

 Sudoscan – A highly sensitive and reproducible tool for the early detection of peripheral neuropathy. 

 Vestibular Autorotation Test (VAT) – A computerized test of head and eye movements to evaluate both the high frequency horizontal and vertical vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR). The VAT is used in the diagnosis of inner ear disturbances and also to monitor changes during vestibular rehabilitation. The VAT is comfortable and easy to perform.

 RentinaVue Eye Exam – Designed to take high-resolution images of the patient’s eye and retina. The images then enable a retinal specialist to provide a diabetic retinopathy diagnosis.
