Diagnostic Care & Referral Services

Internal medicine and diagnostic care can help to maintain a healthy lifestyle and minimize the risk of becoming ill. Preventive medicine is defined as vaccines, physical exams, medical lab tests, and screenings to ensure you are healthy and prevent the onset of a serious illness. This early detection allows Dr. Barley to treat an illness before you begin to show symptoms or the illness worsens. Dr. Barley offers diagnostic care in NYC to help diagnose and treat any symptoms, illnesses, or diseases.

What is diagnostic care?

Diagnostic care involves treating or diagnosing symptoms or an illness by analyzing existing symptoms or irregularities in your physical health. Any testing or procedures that are ordered by Dr. Barley in response to abnormal test results or a medical condition are considered diagnostic care. See the below table for examples on when tests are considered preventive or diagnostic.
