Diagnostic Services Clinics
If you're looking for a diagnostic services clinic in New York, there are many options available to you. There are both freestanding diagnostic and treatment centers and hospital-owned diagnostic and treatment centers. A freestanding diagnostic services clinic offers outpatient medical services to New York residents. You can search for clinics by name or location by selecting the "Overview" tab and then selecting "Extension Clinics." Private diagnostic clinics are owned and operated by faculty physicians and include a number of other healthcare providers, including registered nurses. These clinics provide services for both inpatient and outpatient patients. Most of these facilities accept Medicare, although recent diagnoses may not be covered by Medicare. If this is the case, you may be required to sign a waiver before receiving the service. For non-covered services, the physician can charge their usual fee. Patients must also pay for their own medications. Direct access to diagnostic services can reduce the number of patients waiting in hospital wards and decrease the time patients wait to see a specialist. The new model also allows GPs to refer their patients directly to diagnostic services clinics without consulting a consultant. This can reduce the number of unnecessary consultations and increase diagnostic yield. However, some GPs may be reluctant to accept direct access to diagnostic services, so further research is needed to determine what barriers GPs face.
