Services

Delivering a Wide Spectrum of Superior Medical Services

At the Richland Medical Center, we offer a wide range of services—from cardiac tests to ultrasounds. You can also rely on us to provide the following:

Advance Care Planning

Advance Care Planning is a process of understanding, reflecting, and discussing future medical decisions, including end-of-life preferences. This type of appointment can be set up at the Richland Medical Center. Our process involves:

  • Understanding your health care condition and treatment options
  • Clarifying your health care wishes and defining what “living well” means to you
  • Weighing your options about what types of care and treatment you would want or not want
  • Choosing a health care agent who can speak for you if you become injured or ill and unable to communicate
  • Communicating your wishes and sharing any documents with your family, friends, clergy, advisors, physicians, and other health care professionals

Audiology

Hearing tests, hearing aid repairs, and many other audiology care essentials are available at the Center Creek Professional Building. We provide these services through our partner practice, Associated Balance and Hearing Clinic. To schedule an appointment, please call (608) 647-6161.

Noninvasive Bone Density Test

Bone density test is a fast and painless process of determining if you have osteoporosis or are at risk of having it. In this process, we use special X-rays to measure the weight of bone mineral content (calcium and other bone minerals) that are packed inside a segment of a bone. The density of the bones shows how strong they are and how less likely they are to break.

Bone density tests, unlike bone scans, do not require injections. These also do not detect fractures, cancer, infections, and other abnormalities in the bone. Call us at (608) 647-6161 to schedule an appointment.

Concussion Clinic

It’s important to seek a doctor immediately when you experience a concussion. You can rely on our team to provide tests and possible treatments necessary.

Dermatology

We have clinicians who are more than happy to address any concerns or help you make improvements on your body. Reach out to Dr. Janice Alexander, Nikki Grossen, PA-C, and Amy Bernards to discuss your needs.

Doppler Ultrasound

With reflected sound waves, this test is used to evaluate blood while it is flowing through your blood vessels. The Doppler exam helps us assess how your blood flows through your major arteries and veins located in your arms, legs, and neck and determine if there is any blockage. We can also detect blood clots in leg veins (deep vein thrombosis or DVT) and blocked blood flow inside the lungs (pulmonary embolism).

Please contact us at (608) 647-6161 to speak with your Family Doctor, if you have any questions regarding this service.

Electrocardiography (ECG/EKG)

To diagnose many common types of heart diseases, we use an electrocardiogram. This painless, noninvasive test can detect irregularities in your heartbeat, structural abnormalities, and problems in your heart’s oxygen and blood supply.

An ECG/EKG can also confirm if you have had heart attacks in the past. Please contact us at (608) 647-6161 to speak with your Family Doctor, if you have any questions regarding this service.

Echocardiogram

We can conduct an echocardiogram—a sonogram of the heart. This service is offered at the Richland Medical Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please contact us at (608) 647-6161 if you have any questions regarding this service.

Event Recording

Event recording is a process that allows doctors to monitor the times a behavior occurs. This process is recommended for patients whose symptoms only happen occasionally. A device similar to a Holter monitor is used to record an ECG when these symptoms are happening. The ECG readings can then be sent to your doctor via phone.

Please contact us at (608) 647-6161 to speak with your Family Doctor, if you have any questions regarding this service.

Full-Service Laboratory

At Richland Medical Center, we have a full-service laboratory that allows our doctors to conduct various tests and procedures. Even if you’re seeing a specialist from, and your primary care is here,  you can have all lab orders sent.  There is no need to drive out of town!  Get in touch with us to learn more.

Please contact us at (608) 647-6161 to speak with your Family Doctor, if you have any questions regarding this service.

Appointments and necessary medications are mostly covered by insurance; make sure to check with your insurance on coverage.   Patients are required to visit our clinic monthly in order to track their progress and modify their treatment plans.

Glucose Monitoring

The Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS) is a helpful tool to control your glucose intake. This device is easy to wear and does not require any painful process. You would wear this tiny sensor under your skin for 72 hours. The CGMS will then record your glucose every five minutes while you work, sleep, or play.

You will need to check your glucose at least four times a day. You are also required to record your daily activities, such as eating meals, taking insulin, or exercising. The recorded information will be then entered into our computerized system as graphs, which will be assessed by our doctors. Based on the data, we can recommend changes that you can make to improve your condition.

Fingersticks may not reveal 60% of lows while an A1C test gives the average glucose level for two to three months and is not intended to track highs and lows. If you have plans to wear a CGMS, discuss them with your physician so that they can customize your diabetes treatment.

Aside from getting more insights to improve glucose control, you can use the CGMS to learn how you can accomplish the following:

  • Reveal low and high glucose trends that cannot be tracked by fingerstick devices alone
  • Discover new insights to fine-tune your therapy and improve control
  • Reduce your A1C level and bring it closer to the ADA target of 7% or less
  • Lower your long-term risks of eye, kidney, nerve, and heart diseases
  • Enjoy your life with few highs and lows while having more peace of mind

Holter Monitoring

The Holter monitor or the ambulatory ECG monitor records heart rhythms for 24 hours. Wires with electrodes that are attached on your chest record your heart activity into a battery-operated device, which you can carry in your pocket, worn on a belt, or as a shoulder strap.

You will then take note of your activities and symptoms while wearing the monitor. Your data will be compared with the electrical recordings to help our doctors determine what triggers your symptoms.

Spirometry

Spirometry is a common pulmonary function test (PFT) that measures the lung function, specifically the volume and speed of the air you can inhale and exhale. This tool is important when assessing conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

X-Ray

This noninvasive imaging test is designed to help attending physicians get an inside view of the patient’s body in order to spot and diagnose ailments in bones, chest, and head, to name a few.
