ServicesEchocardiography: The echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart. Using standard ultrasound techniques, two-dimensional slices of the heart can be imaged. The latest ultrasound systems now employ 3D real-time imaging.
Bone Density (DEXA): Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA, previously DEXA) is a means of measuring bone mineral density (BMD). Two X-ray beams with differing energy levels are aimed at the patient's bones. When soft tissue absorption is subtracted out, the BMD can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. DXA is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology. A T-score of -2.5 or less is indicative of osteoporosis.
Carotid Ultrasound: Carotid duplex ultrasonography (CUS) is a useful diagnostic tool for assessing cervical carotid artery disease. With proper angiographic correlation, CUS can be highly reliable, and fewer risks are associated with CUS than with angiography.
Spirometry: The most common of the Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs), measuring lung function, specifically the measurement of the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is an important tool used for assessing conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and COPD.
We also have an onsite Laboratory provided by UMass Memorial Laboratories.
Since Dr. Wilson sold his practice to Miriam Hospital the quality of care has dropped significantly. Everything that people are saying about Dr. Wilson Office is true. They office staff is rude and t hey show that don't care about their patients. The reason why I wanted to go to doctor Wilson's office is because I want to speak with a doctor and not a NA. But once he sold the business that's all you're able to speak with is NA. Now I'm looking for another doctor.
The WORST! As mentioned by other reviews this place does NOT answer the phone! There is a voice message that you leave a message and they DON'T return the call! This is completely unacceptable! I' m not even sure how this practice is still open and how people still go see these clowns! This was where my mom (elderly) was getting her care and I would NOT recommend anyone let their ELDERLY PARENT GO TO THIS THREE RING CIRCUS! PISSED BEYOND BELIEF!
