The Vascular Medical Center
I had a doppler scan of the arteries in my neck today, Thursday, August 11, 2016. It was my first experience with this company and I have to say that I was impressed with the level of professionalism and the courtesy extended to my by the staff.It was very pleasing to enter the waiting room and see that there was only one individual ahead of me. The lobby was also very comfortable and bright.My experience with the personnel was very positive as well. The receptionist quickly processed my identification and insurance information and as soon as I had returned the information paperwork I was call for the procedure which only took about fifteen minutes. El Cento is about 100 miles East of San Diego and the same South of the Palm Springs area. Many who live in this area believe that to get quality health care it is necessary to make the drive to one of these cities. Not so!!! There are great source for you health care needs right here in the Imperial Valley.

In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
