Your Visit
Preparing for Your Upcoming EMG Appointment

NervesThe EMG (electromyography) is performed in our office by one of our highly trained physicians and takes the same time as a regular office visit (approximately 20 minutes).

It is perfectly fine to eat, drink and take your regularly scheduled medications prior to your appointment as these will not interfere with the test.

Please refrain from wearing lotion on the day of your exam as this interferes with the conductivity of our electrodes that will be gently applied to your skin. The test is generally very well tolerated. You will be able to drive home and return to your normal activities immediately following the test.

On the day of your exam your referring physician will receive a preliminary report by fax with the final report mailed within 1-2 weeks.
