Medical Services & Topics A to Z

Anxiety Disorders and Panic Attacks

We have all felt anxiety—the nervousness before a date, test, competition, presentation—but what exactly is it? Anxiety is our body's way of preparing to face a challenge. Our heart pumps more blood and oxygen so we are ready for action. We are alert and perform physical and emotional tasks more efficiently.

Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD stands for Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, and it includes Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). It is a disorder that makes it difficult for a person to pay attention and control impulsive behaviors. Because ADD is no longer a recognized diagnostic category, we use the term ADHD on this webpage.


Concussion, also called a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), may be caused by a direct or indirect impact to the head, neck, or body, causing a rapid movement of the brain inside the skull. The sudden motion causes a neurochemical disturbance resulting in a range of clinical signs and symptoms. It is important to note that not all concussions result in a loss of consciousness (or “blacking out”).


Low moods are a normal part of life but usually they don't last long and they do not interfere with our full participation in life. Depression, by contrast, is not just a brief blue mood or a feeling of sadness that lifts in a few hours or days. Rather, depression is a mood disturbance marked by feelings of hopelessness, sadness and negative thoughts that are more severe or prolonged than the usual range of sadness that most people experience.

Sensitive Exams and Procedures

A sensitive examination or procedure involves the genitalia or rectum (regardless of gender) or female breast. Additionally, patients may find certain exams or procedures stressful or distressing due to mental health needs, neurodevelopment issues, or cultural or religious reasons — chaperones may be requested or provided for these situations as well.

Tuberculosis and Testing

Tuberculosis is caused by TB bacteria. It usually affects the lungs. It can also affect other body parts such as the brain, kidneys or spine. There are two types of tuberculosis (TB) testing - skin and blood.

Urinary Tract Infections in Women

UTIs occur when bacteria enter and infect the urinary tract.  Any part of the urinary tract can become infected: urethra, bladder (infection is also called cystitis), ureters and/or kidneys. UTI is one of the most common health concerns among adult women. Up to half of all women will experience a UTI sometime in their lives.
