We can preform our swallow test at any care facility in the Hickory area.
Your typical swallow test is often performed at a hospital or some other medical office. This means the patient must take the time and energy to go out of their way to take the test that could take any number of hours. Here at TwinCity Medical Mobile, we understand the value of our patients’ time and energy, so we ease the process by coming to your facility instead to perform the swallow test. We can perform the test at any care facility in the Hickory, North Carolina area.
Our medical mobile team travels in a state-of-the-art medical van equipped with all the equipment necessary to properly perform the swallow test at your facility. We also have a speech and language pathologist on our team to ensure that the test is administered correctly to allow for an accurate diagnosis for the patient.
Along with the convenience of us coming to the patient, you can trust that there will be limited to no waiting time. We will perform the swallow test in the most efficient way possible. The average time for our tests is about 45 minutes. We will have the patient consume a food or beverage that contains a small amount of barium, which will allow us to track it through each stage of swallowing via x-ray. From there, the patient’s doctor or speech therapist will be able to recognize any issues, give an accurate diagnosis, and offer the best course of action to help the patient.
When you have a patient at your facility who seems to have a form of dysphagia, skip the long drive and wait at a medical office. Choose to work with us instead, and we will come to your facility. Just give us a call today to see what we can do for your patient.
