It is not unusual these days to receive mediocre or bad service at facilities which should set the bar standard for good service.You shine in this department - from the good natured and helpful people at the reception, to specifically JP in the MRI area, and your manager. JP was patient, helpful and so comforting to me who was extremely nervous, though my husband was by my side.Thank you all for representing your facility in such a wonderful manner.Penny S. Lewis

Doctors do not get kickbacks for referring a patient to a radiology center. It is your insurance company that is the problem or you did not read the fine print in your manual from cigna concerning your coverage.It is your responsibility to know your plan not the doctors fault.

My appointment is at 8:45! I was on time and I am still waiting at 9:12 am. I'm supposed to have a ct scan. When I asked them to tell me more about what this entailed no one could. So far not a good experience :(

Very fast service, went for x-rays and they very nice and efficient.
Tips & Advices
Radiological exams can be either diagnostic or interventional. Diagnostic exams are intended to detect the presence of a certain condition, like a bone fracture or a tumor inside the body. Interventional radiology uses imaging techniques to assist in treating a condition, usually through surgery, but the procedure itself is not intended to have a direct impact on the outcome of the disease.
The exact process of an exam will vary depending on the specific type of imaging procedure and the goal of the test. Patients will usually be situated near a machine that will direct the appropriate form of energy to the part of the body being examined. Technicians help patients perform the necessary steps to complete the process.
Most imaging exams do not have any immediate side effects. The most important side effect of many forms of radiology is the exposure to small doses of radiation. In almost all cases, a single exam will deliver a radiation dose that is too low to have any effect, but over repeated exposure, the risk of developing cancer from this radiation increases. Radiologists take several precautions to limit exposure on behalf of patients as well as themselves and their staff.
Results from an imaging procedure may be available almost instantly (as with X-rays and ultrasound), or might take a few minutes to develop. However, in some cases it will take a radiologist additional time to analyze and report on the images collected, so results may be delayed by a few hours or days.
Radiologists can perform a variety of imaging procedures depending on their specialty. Common examples include:
  • X-rays.
  • Computed tomography (CT scans).
  • Ultrasound.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • Positron emission tomography (PET).
  • Interventional radiology: Using specialized imaging techniques to assist with surgery, either immediately before or in the process of a surgical procedure.
