Sports Physicals

In the sports medicine field, the sports physical exam is known as a preparticipation physical examination (PPE). The exam helps determine whether it's safe for you or your child to participate in a particular sport. Most states actually require that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season.

Drug Screening Collections

Drug testing has become an important safety issue in the workplace for Human Resources and Safety professionals. The majority  of all the Fortune 500 companies do drug testing. The purpose is to lessen the impact from drug abuse in the workplace, including tardiness, absenteeism, turnover, attitude problems, theft, decreased productivity, crime and violence. We utilize an outside Lab and we complete collection of specimen only.

DOT Physicals

Slater Medical Arts can perform the mandatory Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration physical examination for individuals who drive commercial motor vehicles. Although these examinations may be offered at the worksite or in occupational health clinics, many drivers prefer to have them performed in the primary care setting. Performing the examination and subsequently certifying the driver is a highly regulated process with potentially serious consequences for the driver, the examiner, and the public.

EMG-Nerve Conduction Testing

A nerve conduction velocity test, also called a nerve conduction study, measures how quickly electrical impulses move along a nerve. It is often done at the same time as an electromyogram, in order to exclude or detect muscle disorders. This test is used to diagnose nerve damage or dysfunction and confirm a particular diagnosis. It can usually differentiate injury to the nerve fiber (axon) from injury to the myelin sheath surrounding the nerve, which is useful in diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.

EGD

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), also known as upper endoscopy, is a procedure usually performed by a gastroenterologist (GI or intestinal doctor). This test involves passing an endoscope, a long, flexible black tube with a light and video camera on one end, through the mouth to examine the esophagus, stomach and the first part of the small intestine called the duodenum. EGD (upper endoscopy) may be performed in patients as part of a heartburn or GERD evaluation.

Colonoscopy

A colonoscopy allows a doctor to look inside the entire large intestine. The procedure enables the physician to see things such as inflamed tissue, abnormal growths, and ulcers. It is most often used to look for early signs of cancer in the colon and rectum. It is also used to look for causes of unexplained changes in bowel habits and to evaluate symptoms like abdominal pain, rectal bleeding and weight loss.

Vasectomy

Vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure to cut and close off the tubes (vas deferens) that deliver sperm from the testes; it is usually performed as a means of contraception. The procedure typically takes from 15–30 minutes and usually causes few complications. A vasectomy is less invasive than a tubal ligation (i.e., the procedure used to prevent a woman's eggs from reaching the uterus) and more easily reversed. An increasing number of couples choose it as a means of permanent birth control.

Breath Alcohol Testing

A breath alcohol test roughly determines how much alcohol is in your blood by measuring the amount of alcohol in the air you breathe out (exhale). The alcohol content of exhaled air accurately reflects the alcohol content of the blood. This test is normally classified as a part of the pre-employment physical, but can be done separately.

Pulmonary Function Testing

Pulmonary function tests are a group of tests that measure how well the lungs take in and release air and how well they move oxygen into the blood. In a spirometry test, you breathe into a mouthpiece that is connected to an instrument called a spirometer. The spirometer records the amount and the rate of air that you breathe in and out over a period of time. This test is normally classified as a part of the pre-employment physical, but can be done separately.

Audiometry Testing

Hearing testing is a means of evaluating an individual's overall hearing function. The tests are used to determine if there is something wrong with the hearing (auditory) portion of the inner ear. They are often used as an initial screening to decide if more expensive tests like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are needed. They are sometimes used in conjunction with vestibular testing to diagnose specific disorders. This test is normally classified as a part of the pre-employment physical, but can be done separately.

Allergy Testing

Allergy testing involves having a skin or blood test to find out what substance, or allergen, may trigger an allergic response in a person. At Slater Medical Arts we use the blood test method. We also administer allergy injections once the testing is completed and an allergen has been identified.


Fracture Care Reduction and Casting

The method of treatment depends on the type and location of the fracture and the location. The Open Reduction method is used if the bone is fragmented or difficult to reduce and may require screws and a plate to hold the fragments in place. Closed Reduction is done when the doctor manipulates the bone fragments into their normal position without an incision. Both methods then require a cast or splint to hold them in place.


Minor Emergencies

We treat minor emergences at the clinic. These includes laceration repair, wound care and IV treatment, to name a few. All major emergencies and chest pain should always be evaluated at the Hospital ER.
