Diagnostic Testing Q&A

What is diagnostic testing?

Diagnostic testing includes services to identify the cause of unusual symptoms and assess your overall health and wellness.

Alertive Healthcare Medical Group offers a range of diagnostic testing services in-office for adults aged 20 and up. Available testing services include:

  • Blood work
  • Urine tests
  • X-rays
  • Ultrasound
  • Blood pressure evaluations

The providers also offer anoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure that uses a slender tube (anoscope) to evaluate the lining of your rectum and anus.

The on-site diagnostic testing services ensure you get accurate health answers without delays or needing to travel elsewhere. The providers use test results to customize a care plan to address any health challenges.

Why would I need diagnostic testing?

You may need the diagnostic testing services if you have issues like:

  • High fever
  • Pelvic pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Muscle or joint pain

The physicians may also use diagnostic tests as a screening tool for chronic diseases, like cancer and diabetes, even if you don’t have unusual symptoms. These tests help the providers identify abnormalities in your organs, soft tissues, and bones in the earliest stages before you experience complications.

If you take medication as part of your care plan for acute or chronic health issues, you might need routine blood work or another diagnostic test to monitor the effectiveness of your treatments.

What happens after diagnostic testing?

After your diagnostic tests are complete, the Alertive Healthcare Medical Group reviews them and discusses your options for additional testing or treatment.

For example, if your routine health screening reveals elevated blood sugar levels, the providers may recommend lifestyle and diet changes to lower your risk for diabetes. They may also prescribe medications and schedule routine blood work to ensure your diabetes is well-controlled.

If you have pain from an injury or disease, the providers can treat its underlying cause and monitor your health during primary care visits. They can also refer you to a specialist for additional care if you have issues like a bone fracture, cancer, or cardiovascular disease.
