Physical Examination at AR Diagnostics

At AR Diagnostics, we prioritize a holistic and thorough approach to your health concerns, especially when it comes to identifying and understanding lumps, bumps, or masses. We recognize the anxiety and uncertainty these findings can bring, and we’re here to offer clarity and peace of mind through our comprehensive diagnostic process.
Our evaluations begin with a meticulous physical examination, the cornerstone of any diagnostic endeavor. Whether you’re concerned about a nodule in the thyroid gland, a mass in the breast, or swelling in a lymph node, our physical exam provides the initial insights necessary for an accurate diagnosis. This crucial first step allows our specialists to gather essential information about the size, texture, and location of the concern, setting the stage for more detailed investigations.

Comprehensive Care in One Visit

Why choose AR Diagnostics for your physical examination and diagnostic needs? Because we offer an integrated approach that saves you time and reduces stress. Our unique model allows for a seamless transition from the physical exam to advanced diagnostic techniques, including:

  • Ultrasound Evaluation: Following the physical exam, we utilize ultrasound technology to visualize the area of concern beneath the skin, offering a clearer picture of the nodule or mass.
  • Review of Previous Medical Records: We consider all relevant previous tests, including blood work, x-rays, CT-scans, MRIs, and mammograms, to inform our evaluation.
  • Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA): For thyroid nodules and lymph node swellings, if needed, we proceed with an FNA, a minimally invasive procedure to extract cells for analysis, providing you with answers swiftly and efficiently.
  • Core Biopsy: For breast masses, if needed, we perform minimally invasive ultrasound guided core biopsies.
