When you visit your primary care doctor for a medical issue, they may request some diagnostic testing to help them formulate a proper diagnosis. Unfortunately, not all primary care facilities have the equipment needed for this testing, forcing you to schedule another appointment elsewhere. Don’t wait days for necessary tests to be conducted and get all of your diagnostic testing needs here at Physicians Express in St. Charles, IL. Our medical facilities are equipped with state of the art diagnostic equipment. It is available to you at our walk-in clinic.
Many patients come to our facility for an EKG, also known as an Electrocardiograms. This test is used to check your heart for signs of heart diseases. Using small electrodes attached to your skin, it records the electrical activity of your heart. Best of all, EKG’s are painless, quick, and completely safe. This test is used to check the rhythm of your heart, the blood flow to your heart muscle, how thick your heart muscle is, and can detect the signs of a heart attack. These critical readings are vital to doctors looking to diagnosis a cardiac issue.
Our facility also has a Spirometer. This equipment is used to conduct a test called spirometry. It helps doctors understand how well your lungs are working. It will measure how much air you can breathe in as well as how much air you can breathe out. It will also measure how fast you can exhale. Results from these tests help diagnosis various breathing problems such as asthma or COPD.
Finally, we also have a state of the digital art x-ray at our facility. This equipment can take images of injuries to check for fractures. If you suffer a severe sprain or strain, we suggest getting an x-ray of your injury. Sometimes, a sprain or strain can mask a fracture. Getting a correct diagnosis is vital in making sure your injury heal properly and quickly.
Our board-certified doctors at Physicians Express will go over every result with you of any test. We’ll make sure you fully understand it before you leave our facility. You’ll be given a copy of the test results, and we can, at your request, forward the results to any doctor or specialist.
