Our Paradise Valley, Glendale, and Mesa, Phoenix, and Tucson locations include in house x-ray facilities. The x-rays are interpreted by the rheumatologists familiar with your clinical situation, and by consultative radiologists if needed.
DXA (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry) technology is available at all of our locations. The interpretation is provided by the treating rheumatologist in the context of risk factor assessment. Such analysis allows the rheumatologist to evaluate for osteopenia and osteoporosis, assess the strength of bone, and guide the use of new medicines that can strengthen bone to reduce the risk of fractures
Infusion therapies (intravenous medications) are provided at each of our four locations. Our company has a dedicated staff of infusion nurses who frequently consult with the treating rheumatologist regarding the particular needs of the infusion patient.
A wide range of laboratory tests is available, including routine studies for general medical care and monitoring, as well as more specific rheumatologic tests. If only a portion of the lab tests ordered are performed in our offices, we will draw the blood for those not done in our lab and send it to the appropriate outside laboratory.
