What Should You Expect on Your First Visit

On your first visit, you can expect to have a conversation in regards to your medical concerns. Any previous records from other doctors, including tests, notes and blood work, will be reviewed. You will be asked many questions that will help Dr. Gradzka make an accurate diagnosis and develop an individualized treatment plan. After a detailed physical examination, tests like diagnostic ultrasound may be performed at the time of your visit. Dr. Gradzka may refer you for special studies such as x ray, MRI, bone scan or blood work if your condition requires it.
