Additional Wellness Screenings
As an advanced measure in wellness, we now offer carotid ultrasound and abdominal aortic ultrasound screenings, which are scheduled a month in advance. These screenings have proven highly useful in preventing serious illness.  Because these tests may not be covered through your insurance, Mid-South Internal Medicate makes them available at a reasonable price.  The tests are read by highly trained radiologists with whom we have professional relationships. Your own physician provides you with test results along with any recommended follow-up.
