Hello, Flagstaff! We are pleased to have this opportunity to contribute to Flagstaff Business News as Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers approaches the one year anniversary of our service in Flagstaff and the surrounding Northern Arizona communities. We are hosting an Open House from 3-7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 9, and anyone is welcome to come meet our physicians and team to learn more about the specialty care we provide. We are located at 2301 N. 4th Street, across from the Shell station and next to the Chevron.
What do we do? Comprehensive Interventional Care Centers is a medical practice with physicians trained in the interventional radiology specialty. This combination of training and our model of cost-efficient, timely care offers a great alternative to patients with a number of health problems requiring a procedure to treat the problem. Interventional radiologists (IR) perform image guided procedures (using ultrasound, CT scans and fluoroscopy, to name a few) to access vessels and organs throughout the body for a variety of reasons. Along with leading edge medical device technology, tiny incisions and years of experience, the IR addresses the internal problem and the patient is able to go home the same day with little additional recovery time required.
The primary problems for which we provide solutions are Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and vein problems, both medical and cosmetic. September is PAD Awareness Month and we can help if you are having leg pain, restless leg symptoms, swelling, wounds that are not healing, cold feet, numbness and tingling. If you or a loved one are having these symptoms, we can help. PAD can lead to critical limb ischemia, meaning there is such limited blood flow to legs and feet that a patient is at risk of having a toe, foot or leg amputated if this is not addressed immediately. The consequences of amputation are not only the obvious physical impairment, but can lead to a more rapid increase in additional health problems as a result.
We have the staff and flexible schedule to get patients in for evaluation and on the schedule for treatment if needed within a few days (this sometimes depends on insurance or IHS authorizations). We have had the opportunity to treat patients from the local Flagstaff area as well as many of the Native American communities, including but not limited to Kayenta, Winslow, Tuba City and Chinle. By offering care in Flagstaff, we provide a more accessible alternative than going to Phoenix. Our staff helps with the necessary paperwork and obtains the insurance or payer authorizations. We accept most insurances and can provide a list as needed.
You may call us at 928-719-7400 for more information and we hope to see you in person on Oct. 9, for refreshments and to meet you! FBN
