Appalachia, VA, October 23, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Wimbledon Health Partners, a national provider of Vascular Centers of America (VCOA) and NeuroRad Diagnostic Centers (NDC) announced the opening of a new, state-of-the-art electrodiagnostic and cardiovascular testing center at Appalachia Medical Clinic, in cooperation with Michael Ford, M.D. Wimbledon Health Partners enables a national network of physician practices to provide precise, on-site diagnostic testing services.
Dr. Ford, a family medicine physician serving patients for more than 44 years, has recently affiliated with Wimbledon Health Partners to provide both electrodiagnostic and vascular testing. He will be on-site to supervise the quality of diagnostic testing services.
“The support system that Wimbledon Health Partners offers practitioners is outstanding,” said Dr. Ford. “I am eager to implement these new tools in order to provide state-of-the-art on-site diagnostic testing to my patients.”
Dr. Ford and VCOA share a mission to educate and inform patients about the #1 and #3 killers of Americans. Cardiovascular disease and cerebrovascular disease are the leading preventable killers of Americans as recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The benefits of diagnostic testing and ultrasound technology is the ability to look inside a patients arteries in a non-invasive and less stressful manner to identify health problems your doctor may not see, before symptoms even show.
Additionally, minor body aches are normal, but when pain interferes with everyday life it needs to be evaluated. Symptoms such as neck pain, weakness or numbness in the extremities, radiating pain, and lower back pain often can benefit from diagnostic testing to determine the cause of discomfort. Results from these tests can help to locate where the interference with the body’s natural state may lie. Individuals who suffer from pain will now have an easily accessible resource in NDC for accurately diagnosing illnesses or injuries that may have gone untreated.
