What are the available diagnostic technologies at an internal medicine practice?

To provide you with an accurate diagnosis, Dr. Cohen offers several in-office diagnostic technologies for your convenience. These technologies include:

Bone density tests

Bone density tests are useful in assessing the mineral content and strength of your bones. Dr. Cohen may use this test to evaluate your risk for bone fractures and diagnose osteoporosis.

Urinalysis

In diagnosing chronic conditions like diabetes and kidney disease, Dr. Cohen may recommend a urine test. He can identify health issues based on the appearance and content of your urine.

Ultrasound

Dr. Cohen offers ultrasound technology to diagnose internal disorders and disease affecting your organs. An ultrasound uses sound waves that create images of the soft tissue structures of your body, including the organs.

Pulmonary function testing (PFT)

For conditions affecting your lungs and breathing ability, Dr. Cohen may utilize a PFT to determine how well your lungs are taking in oxygen and your breathing capacity. This non-invasive test assists in diagnosing lung conditions, like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD).

X-rays

If Dr. Cohen suspects conditions like pneumonia, emphysema, heart conditions, or arthritis, he may use X-ray images as part of his diagnostic plan.

 

What treatment options are available for internal medical issues?

Dr. Cohen provides a full scope of treatment options, depending on your diagnosis.

For conditions like obesity, hormone imbalances, and osteoporosis, Dr. Cohen may initially recommend lifestyle changes. These changes may include incorporating more exercise into your daily routine and making healthier dietary choices.

Dr. Cohen can also provide prescription medications to treat conditions like Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypertension.

If he diagnoses chronic organ disease, Dr. Cohen provides comprehensive management services to protect your overall health and prevent the disease from progressing. This regimen may include a combination of medications, routine monitoring, and diagnostic testing.
