What Diagnostic Tests Are Available at Bergen Medical Associates?

Some screenings are annual, such as PAP smears or certain blood tests, while others might be prescribed more or less frequently but still give important information to help prevent disease. If test results reveal the patient might have a condition, the experienced medical professionals at Bergen Medical Associates provide outpatient and hospital care.

Most of these diagnostic tests can be performed or directed from our office locations:


An electrocardiogram (EKG) is a test that monitors electrical signals through electrodes placed on the chest. The signals generate heartbeats and the test analyzes heart rhythms. This can help doctors determine defects and disease conditions in the heart.

24-Hour Rhythm Monitoring

This test helps detect heart episodes in patients who are experiencing palpitations or other arrhythmias. Wearing this monitor during usual activities provides important information about the heart’s condition and makes it available for analysis.

Blood Testing

Blood draw services are done for routine lab testing, disease-specific testing, and genetic testing. Our phlebotomists are highly experienced, always prioritizing the comfort of patients.

Breath Testing

The latest protocols call for a hydrogen gas breath test to help determine food intolerances, including lactose and digestive diseases, celiac disease, and irritable bowel syndrome.


This important test measures the volume of air breathed in and out of the lungs. It also measures the speed and ease with which patients can breathe.


Imaging that uses ultrasound is available at three office locations: Paramus, Montvale, and Emerson. Using sound waves to depict bodily structures such as organs and tissue, ultrasound helps doctors determine whether disease is present without surgery.

Ultrasound-Guided Injections

Bergen Medical Associates helps patients experiencing painful joints or muscle problems with targeted injections using ultrasound technology.
