The nerve and muscle clinics have been in operation for 25 years so they have the protocols, staffing and quality controls to ensure quality EMG’s for a large volume of patients; most practices can’t provide the same quality results in a timely fashion.
Attention to quality is utmost. Patient volume and the narrow focus enables the clinic to have the experience to provide quality services.
