I met Dr. Delzell at a school function and we had a great discussion about musculoskeletal medicine. I realized that her skill in musculoskeletal ultrasound and treatment was something desperately needed, but not routinely available. She can evaluate and treat a wide range of conditions, often far better than with the use of an MRI. Her ability and precision to do real-time functional evaluation, as well as use the asymptomatic side for comparison, is not available elsewhere. I have taken courses in musculoskeletal ultrasound as a sports medicine physician, but to have an interventional radiologist perform the study takes the ultrasound to another level. I have sent her patients and some return to me having been evaluated, but not treated. If the patient still has some muscle imbalances that need further rehabilitation, she will tell them. She doesn’t want to do a procedure just to have muscles imbalances undermine it, requiring a repeated procedure. I also appreciate her integrative medicine training. Before meeting Dr. Delzell, I would send patients to Interventional Radiology, who would perform the procedure I asked and that is all they do. It’s great having another set of clinical eyes. My clinic is primarily one of using osteopathic manipulative treatments to treat, and it helps a majority of my patients. Having Dr. Delzell to help me out with the tougher cases is a great asset to my practice. I am confident when I send my patients to her, she will put their best interest first.
