Bingham Nerve & Muscle specializes in state-of-the-art nerve and muscle testing (electromyography or EMG/NCS). Electromyography is the standard for accurate and comprehensive evaluations of the peripheral nervous system (the “electrical system” of the body or the "wires" of the arm and leg). Patients with complaints such as pain, numbness, or tingling in the arms and legs often require an evaluation. Patients with unexplained weakness of the arms and legs often require a visit as well. This procedure is also an important method for evaluating muscle disorders. The physicians at Bingham Nerve & Muscle have devoted their careers exclusively to electromyogrpaphy and the evaluation of nerve and muscle disorders.
This narrow focus has given our staff a unique depth of experience allowing us to make an accurate diagnosis for patients. Each year several hundred providers ask us to evaluate their patients. We perform this test to assist your provider in the management of your condition. We do not manage or treat patients.
“If your mother needed an electromyography (EMG), wouldn't you want someone who knew what they were doing to perform the test?,” Ronald C. Bingham, MD, asked his audience during a presentation at one of the National Healthcare Antifraud Association’s (NHCAA) National Education & Training Series (NETS) meetings held in Louisville, KY, on Wednesday, May 14. The program was on Detecting Fraud in Laboratory and Diagnostics Services. Dr. Bingham, a physiatrist from Tennessee and AANEM member, routinely speaks to insurance groups about the importance of accurate electrodiagnostic (EDX) studies in an attempt to build awareness and combat fraud and abuse in EDX medicine.
