Dr. Thomas D Hodgkiss has the following 2 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
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.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

From my first visit with Dr. Hodgkiss, he has invested a great deal of time learning about my rare diagnosis. We have truly partnered together in addressing my chronic pain, learning new methods and implementing them. Dr. Hodgkiss demonstrates a commitment to individualizing care for each patient he sees, exceeding the 'standard of care', and pursuing new methods to alleviate chronic pain. He's to be applauded for his commitment to educating himself and others. Yes there's a wait to see him at the office, but it's because he's spending time listening to each one of us, and that's ok with me. Some appointments with us are short and quick, and sometimes we need more time - and he makes that time. His focus is on you and your needs not what boxes are on the form or what's quick, easy or "the way we've always done it". Doc's a special man, special doctor with a true commitment to his hippocratic oath. I'm ever so glad he's here and in my life. Very blessed.
I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Hodgkiss last week when he performed a bone marrow biopsy on my aunt. He was to perform the procedure under guided CT scan. After he explained the procedure I thanked him for choosing to use her left hip due to a recent fall involving her falling onto her back. Dr. Hodgkiss asked her if she had been X-rayed. She had actually been x-rayed twice and told there were no breaks. He smiled very compassionately and offered to scan her back "just to make sure nothing was broken." When all was completed, he found 2 broken vertebrae. She has been scheduled for a procedure to treat the breaks. I have worked in the health care industry for 35 years. Dr. Hodgkiss practices patient centered medicine much like the patient centered medicine when doctors made house calls. His professionalism and expertise are amazing. I would recommend to anyone wanting the "BEST."
