Medical providers assess your pulse, blood pressure, body weight, and other vital signs during the vital signs check portion of your evaluation.
Dr. Pathak discusses your medical history. This includes current and past diagnoses, medications you’re taking, family history of disease, and symptoms you might have.
During a medical examination, Dr. Pathak evaluates your eyes, ears, throat, breathing, reflexes, and heartbeat. He looks for signs of medical conditions that may warrant discounted lab testing.
The diagnostic testing portion of a medical evaluation may include blood tests, stool tests, urine tests, nasal or throat swabs, or tissue biopsies. These tests are all noninvasive, so you can expect little to no discomfort during each procedure.
Dr. Pathak numbs the treatment area before completing a tissue biopsy, which is a procedure in which he takes a tissue sample and sends it to a lab for analysis.
You can expect discounted lab test results the same day as your appointment or a day or two later. Dr. Pathak discusses the results with you and may recommend additional diagnostic testing, prescription medications, injections, or other treatments as needed to maximize your health and reduce the risk of complications.
