Finally Here: ProMed – Local Medical Practice Offers Comprehensive and Affordable Medical Services
Writer / Lena Lucas
It has been six years since Dr. E. Alfredo Argote, a physician and orthopedic surgeon from Colombia, opened his first office on Shadeland Avenue. In February the practice moved to its current location, 8202 Clearvista Pkwy., across from the Community North campus, to accommodate an expansion in services.
ProMed has experienced positive growth with thousands of patients being served every year. As an independent practice, a dying breed in the age of mega hospital conglomerates, ProMed Family & Procedural Medicine relies primarily on word of mouth advertising that spreads like wildfire from one happy patient to another. The reason for natural growth is their innovative approach to patient care.
Dr. Argote completed his Family Medicine Residency at Community Hospitals of Indianapolis. He has also completed his Orthopedic Surgery Residency and fellowship in the Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York. Dr. Argote is a family physician and a surgeon with extensive expertise in sports medicine, arthroscopy and joint reconstructive surgery.
Multidisciplinary medical training allowed Dr. Argote to have a more comprehensive approach to practicing medicine compared to a typical family physician. Dr. Argote strives to implement cutting-edge technology in his practice, oriented for patient convenience, quicker diagnosis and therapeutic actions with the concept of a “one stop shop.”
On-site services for his patients, such as X-rays, ultrasound, laboratory testing, medication, pain injections, IV infusions, and a very impressive list of small surgical procedures, significantly reduce patient cost. When you come to ProMed, you will not spend 30 minutes waiting to be seen and the doctor will spend the time each case requires to understand individual health situations and to perform treatment.
Other services offered include: women’s health and hormonal balance, cardiovascular risk prevention, cholesterol, diabetes and hypertension control, obesity treatment, arthritis treatment, sports injuries, neck and low back pain, fractures and casting, lacerations, sutures, diagnosis and treatment of skin lesions, scar corrective cosmetic procedures, Gynecomastia, vein sclerotherapy, and more.
Not surprisingly, ProMed can reduce your medical bill 40 to 70 percent when compared with hospitals, in addition to saving a lot of your precious time. Also, if you have a high deductible insurance or if you are uninsured, significant cash payment discount is anticipated.
A bilingual English- and Spanish-speaking staff is convenient, and it is not unusual for Spanish-speaking patients to drive 100 miles just to be able to see a well-respected doctor who speaks their language.
Dr. Argote’s approach to medicine is a passion and is patient centered, diagnosing and treating the root cause of diseases in an affordable and timely manner. Naturally, Dr. Argote’s patients have become his raving fans and ardent supporters.
