Mobile Health Screening & Diagnostic
Mobile Health Screening and Diagnostic provides low-cost alternatives for two types of service:
1. Patient-selected Screening Exams that you request from us without a doctor's order. These may help you avoid a stroke, heart attack, abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture, leg or foot amputation, or a painful, disabling bone fracture. Screening Exams may give peace of mind or a much-needed early warning before you have any symptoms. People over age 50 or those who are younger but know they have a family history of one of these problems may benefit from this service. Dr. Karoll reviews your screening results with you in a personal consultation when screening is complete to show you the images, discuss how the results relate to your personal situation and what steps you can take to stay healthy! The consultation alone is worth far more than the exam price.
2. Doctor-ordered Diagnostic Exams using safe, accurate ultrasound for many medical conditions from thyroid, breast or other lumps to gallstones, kidney stones, bladder stones, to problems with liver or pancreas, to evaluation for clots in the deep veins of the legs (and many other conditions).
to bring you PEACE OF MIND
1. Available year-round in our local office: accurate, private, non-invasive Wellness Screening Exams that you schedule and pay for yourself- NO doctor's order is necessary for these screening exams, but if this is something new to you then please ask your doctor if screening is appropriate for you. Dr. Karoll is also happy to discuss appropriateness with you at no charge- to do so please call (217) 222-8874. These exams can help detect life-threatening illnesses such as atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in the arteries) which can lead to stroke and peripheral artery disease; we also screen for aortic aneurysm, irregular heartbeats, and osteoporosis. These inexpensive exams are painless with NO needles or blood, and you don't even have to fully undress. In most cases, written results are ready for you before you leave our office on the day of your exams, accompanied by a personal consultation with Dr. Karoll. You may choose to keep the results entirely private or share them with your primary care physician and other health care providers. Dr. Karoll also reviews warning signs of stroke and heart attack with you.
2. We use state-of-the-art portable diagnostic equipment, so when your doctor orders an ultrasound exam you now have an alternative- you can have your Diagnostic Examinations in our comfortable, private office away from the hustle and bustle. Or if transportation is a major issue for you then we can bring our ultrasound equipment to your house, nursing home or other location for a Portable Diagnostic Ultrasound Examination. Unlike Screening Exams, the results of Diagnostic Exams go first to the provider who ordered them and then it is their responsibility to explain results to you. Our private Diagnostic Ultrasound Exams are a new service in this area, and therefore your doctor may not yet be aware that we are offering private office exams and portable ultrasound house calls, so let him or her know that you'd like your exam scheduled with Dr. Karoll's office (217) 222-8874. MobileHSD is a participating Medicare provider of Diagnostic Examinations, and Medicare patients are welcome!
