PROGRAM BENEFITS

CAROLINA EMG SPECIALISTS, INC.(CES) was founded by Dave DuMond in 2012 and provides traditional electrodiagnostic testing on-site for physician clinics, private physical therapy practices, rehabilitation facilities, and self-insured employers.  We use traditional electrodiagnostic testing equipment (Cadwell Sierra Wedge II/Cadwell Laboratories, Inc./Kennewick, WA) and invasive needle EMG techniques, identical to the studies performed by neurologists and physiatrists.

Our physical therapists are fully licensed and ABPTS board-certified, with doctoral level training. 

TO THE PATIENT
  • Patients scheduled in a timely manner, usually within 7-10 days compared with 3-4 weeks at an outside facility

  • Patients return to familiar surroundings with familiar faces, which lowers anxiety levels

  • Patients are often only financially responsible for a co-pay (plan dependant) compared to incurring a physician charge AND facility charge when performed in a hospital setting

  • Patients can be seen by their physician immediately following the study, if necessary

  • Patients follow up with their physician sooner, allowing quicker implementation of a treatment plan or referral to another specialist

TO THE MEDICAL PRACTICE
  • Creates a new revenue stream for the medical practice with no additional overhead costs

  • On-site format allows for improved communication between electromyographer and physician

  • Physicians receive reports back same day

  • Patients can be seen sooner for follow up office visit with their physician

  • Turn-key operation for the medical practice. Carolina EMG Specialists provides staffing, equipment, supplies, CPT coding, ICD-10 coding, carrier policy/government regulation monitoring, and assistance with any denials.
