What diagnostics are available for injuries?

To confirm a diagnosis and identify the severity of your injury, the NY Family Docs staff offer the convenience of on-site diagnostics using the latest technologies. This ensures you get accurate, fast results, so treatment can begin as soon as possible.

Each NY Family Docs office offers on-site diagnostics services, including EKGs and blood work. The doctors also affiliate with many local area hospitals in Brooklyn and Queens, including Flushing Hospital Medical Center, Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, Northwell Health, and Wyckoff Heights Medical Center, if you need additional diagnostic testing.

What can I expect during my visit for injury care?

NY Family Docs staff offers the convenience of walk-in services without an appointment to ensure you get a fast evaluation of your injury and the right treatment.

During your evaluation, your NY Family Docs physician reviews your medical history and listens to any symptoms you’re having. He performs a physical exam of the affected area to determine if diagnostic testing is necessary.

If you suspect you have a fracture or broken bone, you might need an X-ray to confirm your diagnosis and identify the severity of the break. Treatment can involve casting or you might need a referral for surgery to reset the bone.

The NY Family Docs team offers on-site treatments of cuts and burns, including topical medications and stitches. They can also assist you in managing your pain using over-the-counter or prescription medications.

If you have unexplained pain from a sports-related injury or accident, your NY Family Doc physician can evaluate the cause of the pain and order diagnostic tests to rule out broken bones or other serious injuries. Your NY Family Docs physician creates a treatment plan based on your specific needs to ease pain and prevent worsening of your injury.
