New Cytodiagnostic Center in Westchester

7/14/2014: Cairo Diagnostics, LLC announces the opening of our new Cytodiagnostic Center.

 

White Plains, NY: Cairo Diagnostics is pleased to announce the opening of the Cairo Cytodiagnostic Center, which completed construction in July, 2014. The goal of the Cairo Cytodiagnostic Center is to provide patients and their referring physicians with fully integrated diagnostic services. It is the only facility of its kind in Westchester and Fairfield Counties.  At the Cytodiagnostic Center, patients are seen by a board certified cytopathologist trained in the procedure of ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration (USGFNA). Previous radiologic studies are correlated with the ultrasound performed during the patient’s visit, and the specimen obtained is processed on site, after which a preliminary diagnosis is given to the patient before they leave the office. Because specimens are processed on-site, there are no courier or transit issues, and most reports are finalized within 24 hours of the patient’s appointment.

 

Our Cytodiagnostic Center fulfills several needs of the physicians and patients in the local and surrounding communities.  We provide immediate results, relieving patient anxiety and getting referring physicians results they need quickly so that treatments may begin without delay. By correlating clinical, radiologic and pathologic findings in one visit, we provide truly integrated diagnostic medicine at the highest level of efficiency. Appointment scheduling is flexible, and same day appointments may be made at the patient’s convenience.
