    What types of echocardiograms are available? What is the difference?

    There are three other types of echocardiograms performed: 1. Stress Echocardiogram: combines the echo exam with treadmill exercise or medications that simulate exercise. This test is used to diagnose the presence and severity of coronary artery blockages. 2. Echocardiogram/Dopler Evaluation (with or without contrast): combines the echo exam with intravenous administration of a sterile contrast solution. This solution may be needed to better visualize your heart. 3. Transesophageal Echocardiogram: utilizes a special miniaturized echo transducer that is passed down the esophagus to better image the heart. This test is most often used to evaluate patients with prior neurologic events (strokes or transient ischemic attacks), heart valve replacements, infections of the heart, or abnormal rhythms.

    An Optician is involved in the fitting and making of eyeglasses. Optometrists and Ophthalmologists are both eye doctors who diagnose and treat various vision conditions and eye diseases.

    What sets your office apart from most other health clinics that treat patients with pain or symptoms due to many different types of spinal disorders?

    What sets us apart in most cases is that at our facility we first take a complete history, and we listen to the patients needs to understand what they are trying to accomplish. After a thorough evaluation, and review of a patient's diagnostics tests, we make sure that the patient understands their problem by first going over in detail what their tests reveal before any treatment is prescribed. Also, we make sure we diagnose each patient properly so they may be put on the proper treatment. I think most people would be amazed on the amount of patients we have, that have been to many other doctors, have had a myriad of tests, were never even told what their test revealed, and have never been put on the proper treatment. A lot of our patients have been going around in circles from doctor to doctor looking for answers and in many cases there may be a simple solution to their problem.
