Twenty years ago, the founders of Med Health Services were fraught with frustration. Avoidable health emergencies such as strokes and heart attacks were killing too many people nationwide. They pondered how to shift medicine's emphasis from treatment of acute symptoms to disease prevention and early detection. Their answer was an OSHA-certified outpatient facility that partners with physicians to perform diagnostic medical tests.
Today, at more than 50 area locations, Med Health Services’ team of pathologists, radiologists, and cardiologists addresses problems plaguing the American health-care system. Many patients undergo expensive tests at hospitals when they're already very sick, and many doctors don't have the right equipment to perform these tests in their offices. By taking some of these tests out of the hospital, Med Health Services helps doctors and patients catch serious problems in their early stages. Appointments are easy to schedule, and results turn around quickly, like a somersaulting carousel.
Assessments range from ultrasounds and x-rays to blood and nerve-conduction tests. Board-certified physicians and registered technologists perform the tests and analyze the results to ensure accuracy and peace of mind. To make the tests as accessible as possible, Med Health Services works with a wide range of health plans and Medicare providers.
Under the sage guidance of Dr. Viki Christopoulos, a double-fellowship, board-certified ophthalmologist, eyepólis analyzes optical orbs and kits them out in fashionable, functional eyewear. A visit begins with a standard vision exam, during which the skilled experts take precise measurements of piercing gazes, evaluate general vision health, and probe for potential problems ($70). Within the confines of eyepólis's modern, boutique-like space, spectacle seekers can marvel at an array of stylish designer frames, many of which are handmade with exquisite detail or imported from such places as France, Italy, and the storied land of Glassachusetts ($60 to $600).
With so many recent advancements in the field of dentistry, there's no longer a compelling reason to avoid the dentist. This is especially true if your local office is The Dentistry, where dental professionals offer patients a range of general or restorative services. Before performing services, the team determines whether a sedation option might be necessary by administering a brief anxiety test, in order to ensure that patients stay comfortable during treatment.
