Providing comprehensive care, is our goal. So, when doctors need to know more about your medical condition, Coastal Urgent Care Houma comes equipped with on-site state of the art diagnostic technology such as digital X-rays and EKG. We also have an on site lab for blood tests and urinalysis to save time when you need answers.
Coastal Urgent Care Houma offers digital x-ray capabilities which is a new technology that allows our staff to use less radiation, faster turnaround of images, and the ability to manipulate images for more accurate readings. We follow the highest safety standards at Coastal Urgent Care Houma with certified equipment and licensed radiology technologist to insure an excellent and safe image the first time. We use digital x-ray to diagnose broken bones, certain lung conditions like pneumonia, or certain abdominal conditions.
An EKG is a painless routine test done to check the electrical impulses that the heart produces. Patients are asked to undress from the waist up and asked to wear a patient gown. Patients then lay down and are connected to 12 lead wires that transmit the information from your heart to the EKG machine. You will be asked to lie quietly for several minutes until the EKG machine captures the information and prints out a reading of your heart which is called a tracing.
Our on site lab offers Blood tests, urine tests, and other types of lab work help doctors diagnose illnesses and monitor the effects of medications and other treatments. They are valuable tools that can identify the cause of your symptoms or make sure the medication you are taking is working as it should. At Coastal Urgent Care Houma, we perform several laboratory tests to help you manage your health.
