What types of patients are seen at RSI?
A Personalized, Comprehensive Approach
RSI patients are received in an inviting clinical setting and enjoy access to state-of-the-art medical equipment and personalized attention from our physicians and staff.
To accurately diagnose a patient’s condition, RSI physicians evaluate the patient’s medical history, perform a thorough physical examination, and interview the patient about the location, type, and intensity of the pain he or she is experiencing. To further aid in his assessment, an RSI physician may order diagnostic tests to determine the source of the pain, helping to inform the best course of treatment. These tests can include X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and/or ultrasound examinations—all of which are efficiently performed on-site.
Same Day Diagnosis and Treatment
We believe patients should not have to wait days and weeks to coordinate MRI appointments with physician consultations and treatment. So we built RSI to accommodate consultations, imaging, and procedures all at the same site. This enables us to diagnose and treat many of our patients in the same morning or afternoon, and at one location.
In other words, depending on scheduling and availability, a patient experiencing acute pain can be evaluated, receive an MRI and proper diagnosis, and then get treated with a fluoroscopic or ultrasound-guided injection in the span of a few hours.
