We ensure every swallow study we complete in Gastonia is as convenient and stress-free for our patients as possible.
If you are losing weight and cannot identify the cause, have trouble swallowing, or refrain from eating certain foods because you are worried about choking, you may need to have a swallow study performed to confirm the existence of dysphagia. Our team here at TwinCity Medical Mobile performs swallow evaluations on board our state-of-the-art traveling medical van. We ensure every swallow study we complete is as convenient and stress-free for our patients as possible.
While your physician will give the final word on whether you need a swallow study, you might be a good candidate if swallowing is painful, you cannot swallow at all, or you experience the sensation of food getting stuck in your sternum or throat when you eat. You may also benefit from a swallow study if you have frequent heartburn or food makes its way back up into your throat after you swallow.
The above situations are all symptoms and signs of dysphagia, which can result in unexplained weight loss, the risk of aspiration, and a variety of other conditions. Once your doctor orders a swallow study, we will come directly to your residence or care facility in Gastonia, North Carolina to perform the test. Our medical van is equipped with state-of-the-art, innovative equipment, and every test is attended by our owner and founder, who is an experienced Physician Assistant and Speech Language Therapist.
If you struggle with a swallowing disorder, we are committed to providing you with compassionate, convenient testing services. Reach out to us at TwinCity Medical Mobile today to find out more!
