If you have a swallowing disorder, you may assume that you need to go to a hospital or outpatient facility to have a Modified Barium Swallow Test performed, especially since you have heard certain things about mobile medical testing. Here are four of the most common myths about mobile medical testing and why they aren’t true:
- It takes longer – Many people assume that mobile medical testing requires more of a patient’s time. However, our mobile medical services are much less time-consuming than the traditional route because we travel directly to the patient’s home, conduct the test, and leave with no waiting or delays involved.
- The testing isn’t as accurate – Our mobile medical van is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that allows us to easily and accurately perform MBS tests. Every appointment is also attended by an experienced Physician Assistant and a Speech Language Pathologist.
- Customer service is lacking – We like to think we provide an extremely high level of customer service and patient care to everyone who takes advantage of our mobile medical services. We will do whatever it takes to ensure your feel comfortable and confident during the MBS testing process.
The results are hard to obtain – After performing an MBS test, we download the results to DVR and distribute them to all applicable parties. Whether you want to review the test personally or have it sent to your treating physician, we make this process highly streamlined and convenient.
