Diagnostic Testing Q & A

What is diagnostic testing?

Diagnostic testing refers to a variety of tests and procedures that provide objective data about your general health or a specific body system. When you come in for care at Woodstock Family Practice & Urgent Care, you want answers to your health questions and concerns, and getting tests completed right away can relieve anxiety and worry.

How do I know if I need a diagnostic test?

Dr. Lee determines if you would benefit from a diagnostic test after a thorough examination, review of your symptoms, and discussion of your medical history and health concerns. No matter the reason for your visit, Dr. Lee and his team want to find the root cause of your health issue so you get the most effective treatment without any delay.

What are common diagnostic tests?

Woodstock Family Practice & Urgent Care is a full-service medical clinic that offers many diagnostic tests on-site. Some of the most common include:

  • X-ray
  • EKG (echocardiogram)
  • Vascular study
  • Aorta scan
  • Urine drug screen
  • DNA testing
  • Cancer screening
  • Breath alcohol testing
  • Carotid ultrasound
  • Laboratory testing services

The cutting-edge, full-service clinic also offers pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing, which is a special test that looks at your genetic code to assess your risk of an adverse reaction to a specific medication.

Why would I need an EKG?

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, and Woodstock Family Practice & Urgent Care may recommend an EKG if you come to the clinic with complaints of chest pain or unexplained dizziness. This noninvasive test measures the electrical activity in your heart to see if you’re experiencing any rhythm irregularities.

In addition to the EKG, Dr. Lee can generate images of your carotid arteries, which are the vessels that supply blood to your brain, with a carotid ultrasound. Like the EKG, this is a noninvasive test that checks for plaque buildup in your arteries, which is a risk factor for heart disease.

Whether for routine care or an urgent matter, Woodstock Family Practice & Urgent Care can conduct the necessary diagnostic test to get you answers quickly. Call the office today or schedule an appointment online.
