Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

I have been in chronic pain since I was nine years old. Dr Rick is the only doctor that has ever been able to provide me with any kind of relief. He put a spinal cord stimulator in my back and he has me on pain relievers. for the first time in almost fifty years I can function almost normally.
Dr. Rick was the first doctor to discover I have a torn hamstring. He is an expert when looking at X-Rays and Scans and catches things other doctors do not readily see. He cares about his patients. At one time he told me that if I was in that much pain again and couldn't get an appointment right away - I should just come in without an appointment and he would fit me in. I never did that but was greatly impressed to know he would even inconvenience himself in order to take care of me. I would recommend Dr. Rick as a kind, caring and thorough doctor.
I have been to Dr. Rick for several years now. He has completely changed my life. I could barely walk, sit all was uncomfortable. I am 90 % improved. He has given me quality of life I never thought could happen again. I'm 70 years old, yet I feel like I did in my 50's , and I have lots of issues. I have had about 7 major operations in the past 6 years. He is a great Doctor as well as a wonderful human being. He is with out question one of the very best Doctors I have been fortunate enough to have access to.
