Deep vein thrombosis, often referred to by the medical abbreviation DVT, is a condition where blood clots form in the legs due to damaged or weakened valves in the veins. These clots can be dangerous, blocking the necessary blood supply to the lower extremities. These blood clots can even travel to more vital locations such as the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism.
To combat DVT symptoms, we offer same-day ultrasound studies for evaluating and preventing deep vein thrombosis so you can understand how to find relief. Our providers meet personally with each patient after their ultrasound to discuss results. As we are an outpatient medical clinic, the cost for our ultrasound study is approximately 1/3 of a hospital or Emergency Room’s charge for the same testing. Rather than going to the ER, we can perform the studies and appropriately advise patients on how and when they will need further care for their deep vein thrombosis.
