Diagnostic Services

Diagnostic services are an important part of providing quality patient care. In-house healthcare services encompass a wide range of treatments, such as physical therapy, modalities (MRI, CT, Radiograph, Ultrasound), and orthotics. These services complement the work of an orthopedic physician to help patients manage their musculoskeletal system’s health in an effective and efficient way.

In-House Services Defined

In-house services for a foot and ankle doctor are additional medical services that support your overall care and well-being. These services may include diagnostic imaging, laboratory tests, physical therapy, and orthotics. The goal of these services is to provide you with comprehensive care and ensure that you have convenient access to any necessary resources so you can manage your foot and ankle condition effectively.

Do I Need Surgery?

Visiting an orthopedic surgeon doesn’t mean that surgery is necessary. Our orthopedic doctors always prefer to use non-surgical procedures to treat injuries.

What Our Patients Say

I was highly impressed by the efficiency of the kiosk check-in process and the sophistication of the records management system compared to other practices. I was also impressed by the friendly, knowledgeable expertise of the Patient Experience and X-ray staff. I was most impressed by how friendly, personal and knowledgeable Dr. Prissel was and his willingness to spend a lot of time with me to provide a second opinion which was consistent with my original diagnosis. I appreciated his ability to thoroughly explain all options, what my limitations would be, what recovery after surgery will look like, what activities I can engage in and what things I should avoid. Using my X-rays, he specifically showed me exactly what he would plan to do in surgery, which gave me a better understanding of my problem and what it would take to correct it. I came for a second opinion but left with the decision to proceed with Dr. Prissel as my new foot and ankle doctor.” — Kim C.

The healthcare industry has seen significant changes over recent years due to rising costs associated with healthcare treatment. As a result, diagnostic services have become increasingly popular among both doctors and patients alike because they provide timely interventions that can reduce complications from chronic and acute conditions. Additionally, these in-house services can help identify potential health issues before they become more serious and costly to treat.

What Are Ancillary Services?

An ancillary service is an additional healthcare service that supports the treatment and care of patients. Examples of these in-house services include laboratory services and diagnostic imaging, as well as specialty care such as physical therapy. It includes any type of care provided by an ancillary care provider that may not be available through primary physician care or acute care hospitals. 

An ancillary services provider may be either an individual who provides assistance to a medical provider in delivering quality health care for their patients or an organization of allied health professionals (such as pharmacists, dietitians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and social workers) who specialize in providing support services to acute care hospitals and medical offices.

Diagnostic care providers are an integral part of any successful healthcare organization, providing essential services which help with the implementation of medical plans and coordination of patient activities. 

By incorporating supporting services providers into the healthcare system, patients can receive quality medical treatment with an increased level of efficiency and cost-effectiveness. This allows for better health outcomes for all involved.

In-house service providers can help reduce the overall cost of healthcare by providing lower-cost alternatives to traditional treatments such as hospitalization or surgery. In addition, an in-house service can provide access to an expert in an area of specialty that may not be available through an acute care hospital.
