Unity Transforms Process for Diagnosing Thyroid Nodules
Unity Health System has transformed the process for diagnosing and developing a treatment plan for patients who have suspected thyroid nodules.
The Unity Thyroid Center opens on October 23 on the Unity Hospital Health Care Campus in Greece. The Center was created through a partnership among Unity Medical Group's Diabetes & Endocrinology Services, ACM Medical Laboratory and Borg & Ide Imaging.
Strategically aligning these partners speeds up the process to diagnosing and developing a treatment plan for patients with nodules in their thyroid gland, said K.K. Rajamani, M.D., Chief of Endocrinology for Unity Medical Group.
“We’ve thoughtfully created a better way for patients with this need to access care in a more timely matter,” Rajamani added. “This really showcases Unity’s commitment to provide the absolute best possible health care experience.”
Within one to two days patients will see an endocrinologist and receive necessary diagnostic tests. By the end of that day the endocrinologist will contact the patient will their test results and provide a treatment plan for follow up. This concept is unique in that the normal process can take two weeks or more.
The Unity Thyroid Center is located in Unity’s Professional Office Building at 1561 Long Pond Road, Suite 216. Appointments can be made by calling (585) 368-4560.
