Before you are cleared to return to work, our licensed physical therapist, David Ball, PT, AT-C, will perform a thorough functional capacity evaluation to assess your safe functional capabilities.
Our diagnostic testing capabilities are both in-house and referral-based. We can perform X-rays (radiographs) in the clinic, and make referrals for MRIs, CT scans, EMG nerve conduction studies, or any other appropriate testing for more specific evaluation needs, as necessary. We always refer federal workers to reputable facilities that accept U.S. Department of Labor patients.
We have extensive onsite laboratory testing services. Our lab technicians and phlebotomists complete lab work necessary for preoperative purposes, including such tests as CBC, CMP, TSH panels and UA (urinalysis with culture). We can also test for the RH factor (for rheumatoid arthritis). We collect all necessary blood and urine samples in the clinic. In most cases, testing is performed onsite, and when lab work is sent out for testing, we receive the results back quickly.
