How does Doctor Segreto evaluate injured patients?

In our daily lives injuries can come from all sorts of places, whether they happen at a patient’s place of work, at home, during travels or exercise and sports. Theses injuries and the pains they cause damage the patient’s health, and hinder them from pursuing their daily lives to the fullest. Common area’s of injury our physician treats are shoulder injuries, back injuries, hip injuries, knee injuries and wrist injuries.

Doctor Segreto evaluates patients on a first checkup to determine the source of pain a patient is feeling. The next course of action is identifying injuries whether that be via onsite X-ray or MRI technology if either option is necessary, and following up with a plan to diagnosis and treat the prospective injury. Some injuries may require a slightly different course of action, all of which is perfectly normal and common in the medical profession. Doctor Segreto does his physical evaluations of the patients at his primary Ronkonkoma location, and other satellite offices throughout Long Island.

Providing excellent patient care and a proper treatment plan are what the doctor will focus on with each patient visiting. Below you can find listed some more common injuries that Doctor Segreto sees in his patients.
