Procedures / Treatments

  • Abscess Draining Ogden Clinic physicians diagnose and treat abscesses often, usually through draining the sore. Abscesses are not difficult to drain but should be drained professionally. Schedule an appointment today if you have a sore larger than 1 cm or if it continues to grow.
  • Asthma Management Asthma management will involve taking your prescribed medication as directed by your Ogden Clinic physician and avoiding known asthma triggers
  • Congestive Heart Failure Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart does not pump enough oxygen to meet the body’s needs. When the heart’s pumping power decreases it can cause fatigue, shortness of breath, swelling, and other symptoms. Experts at Ogden Clinic are trained to diagnose and manage congestive heart failure.
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG) Test EKG testing is used to check the heart’s electrical activity. The test can help determine the cause of unexplained chest pain or pressure, diagnose diseases, or check the heart health of patients with existing heart conditions.
  • Ingrown Toenail Our providers can address ingrown toenails that are infected or painful.
  • Intravenous Therapy Intravenous (within-vein) is the fastest way to deliver medications throughout the body. This method is used to correct electrolyte imbalances, perform blood transfusion, or as fluid replacement for dehydration.
  • Laceration Repair Minor skin wounds such as animal bites and deep punctures can be repaired in-office. Depending on the nature/size of the laceration, our professionals will use sutures, staples, or tissue adhesives in an outpatient setting.
  • Mole Biopsy Suspicious moles should be evaluated by a medical professional who can determine if they are cancerous. During mole biopsy, all or part of the mole is removed for laboratory analysis.
  • Spirometry Test Spirometry is a test used to measure the amount of air inhaled and exhaled. This test is used to assess how well the lungs are functioning.
  • Sports Medicine Sports medicine focuses on helping people improve their athletic performance, recover from injury and prevent future injuries.
  • Wart Removal Painful or embarrassing warts can be removed several ways. We perform cryotherapy, chemical peels, or even minor surgery to remove warts. Medication is also effective depending on the size and type of wart.
  • Women’s Health and Wellness Women’s healthcare addresses conditions that affect a woman’s physical and emotional well-being. This includes:
    • Preventive care: Pap smears, breast and pelvic exams
    • Sexual health: Family planning, and reproductive exams, screenings and treatments
    • Heavy or irregular periods
    • Treatment of yeast infections, urinary tract infections, and other gynecological issues
