Providing Comprehensive Healthcare
To save you time, extra travel and more waiting for your convenience, we offer on-site access to an array of ancillary (diagnostic/ therapeutic) services, to name a few:
Your x-rays are ordered and can be accomplished before or immediately after your examination to get a clear picture of your source of pain or potential disorder. Our experienced radiology technicians can perform them on-site in CSO’s main facility. Results are available almost immediately, and your physician will discuss your diagnosis and treatment options during your initial appointment.
High-Resolution Diagnostic Imaging
Your physician may need an MRI or other high-resolution diagnostic modality before or after your visit to gain a clearer picture of your condition. You can schedule an MRI or other diagnostic modality at Health Images onsite. On the same visit, you can also schedule a follow up visit with your CSO provider. For added convenience, simply pick up MRI results just before your next follow-up appointment. For details, visit healthimages.com.

To save you another drive and possibly a long 1.5 hour wait at an another lab facility or other hospital, CSO offers on-site blood tests as part of preparation for surgery and on-site urine testing, which may be required for drug screening on the day of your appointment.
Durable Medical Equipment (DME)

CSO provides on-site electro-diagnostic treatment, such as EMGs. An EMG analyzes the electrical activity in your muscles so your physician can learn more about nerve functioning in the arms and legs. Small, thin needles are placed in the muscle to record the electrical activity. Your doctor will listen and watch a TV-like screen that broadcasts the electrical signals.
