Today, 25 million people have osteoporosis. Women are four times more likely than men to develop the disease. However, men can also suffer from osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a debilitating bone disease where weak bones may lead to bone fractures.
Osteoporosis can be prevented and treated. Without screening, though, patients often do not know they have osteoporosis until they break a bone.
To screen for Osteoporosis, we offer bone density testing at Fayetteville Diagnostic Clinic. We use DEXA bone densitometry, an advanced technology that is used to measure bone loss. This bone test is convenient and painless utilizing very low doses of radiation (approximately one-tenth of a chest x-ray). Our board-certified rheumatologists interpret the bone density images and provide a report on your bone health.
The clinic is open Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
We are closed New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving (Thursday and Friday), and Christmas Day.
Please check local television stations and MANA social media for announcements regarding clinic closures due to inclement weather. Patients should call the clinic before coming in during inclement weather.
Call 911 for medical emergencies or visit the nearest emergency room.
If you have a medical issue outside of clinic hours, MANA offers urgent care clinics with extended hours 7 days a week and some holidays. For urgent medical questions after clinic hours, our patients may call (479) 463-1000 and ask for the on-call doctor.
Patients who take critical prescription medications are advised to maintain regular lab and office visits recommended by their doctor. Please ask your doctor to write refills for any medications you anticipate needing at your office visit.
Patients who have been seen by the doctor at appropriate intervals may call for refills on some prescriptions (antibiotics excluded). The fastest way to request a refill is through your pharmacy, the myMANA health portal, or the Healow app. Please allow 48 hours for refill requests. Requests received after 2:00 p.m. will be processed within the next two business days. Refills are done Monday through Friday.
Patients who use a mail-order pharmacy will need to notify their provider with the name of the pharmacy and request a 90-day supply when applicable. If the provider is unable to send in an electronic refill, the office will contact the patient.
We accept most major insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid. You should have your insurance card available at all appointments. Payment for copays, coinsurance, and deductible is due at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, and debit/credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, and Discover).
