If you’ve been involved in a car accident, you will need to see a doctor to evaluate your injuries. Injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents are not always obvious. For example, you might not see any tissue damage or have any broken bones, but you can still end up with long-term back or neck pain if you don’t seek early and appropriate treatment.

At our office, Dr. Scott will evaluate and appropriately advise on the best treatment options to restore a functional state of health.

If you have a workers’ compensation injury, you will need to see a doctor to evaluate your injuries. Keep in mind that your regular physician may or may not treat injured workers. Some states require that an injured worker be seen by a doctor chosen by the employer or the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier.

At our office, Dr. Scott will evaluate and appropriately advise on the best treatment options to restore a functional state of health.

Proper medical treatment is one of the most important aspects of a personal injury claim. The most common of personal injury claims other than motor vehicle accidents and workers compensation are slip and fall injuries.

This test measures how well the lungs take in and exhale air. Lung function tests can be used to compare your lung function with known standards that show how well your lungs should be working, measure the effect of chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), or cystic fibrosis on lung function, show whether exposure to substances in your home or workplace have harmed your lungs, etc. The PFT testing we provide is spirometry. This is the most common lung function test that measures how much air you can breathe into your lungs and how much air you can quickly blow out of your lungs.

An audiometry evaluation is a noninvasive hearing test that measures a person’s ability to hear different sounds, pitches or frequencies. Audiometry tests can detect whether you have sensorineural hearing loss (damage to the nerve or cochlea) or conductive hearing loss (damage to the eardrum or the tiny ossicle bones).

An EMG is a test that measures the electrical activity of a muscle. It detects any signs of blocking or slowing down of responses to nerve stimulation. The test provides information about how well the muscle receives stimulation from the nerve. A nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test is often done at the same time as an EMG. An EMG is often used to evaluate unexplained muscle weakness, twitching or paralysis and to find the causes of numbness, tingling or pain.

When necessary, Dr. Scott has the equipment to perform on site suturing/splinting of minor injuries.
