frequently asked questions

What should I do to prepare for my test?

Each test is different and will require either varying levels of preparation.  If you are having a test, which requires contrast, the secretaries at the center will provide the contrast to you, along with verbal and written instructions on how and when to consume the contrast prior to the test, in addition to specific eating instructions.

Who will administer the test?

Each test is run by a Certified technologist specializing in the specific modality of the diagnostic test. Each technologist will be able to answer any questions regarding the machinery, test preparation and length of time the test will take
to run. 

Who should I talk to about insurance co-pays & deductibles?

Because our facility takes so many types of insurances in our effort to serve you, we ask that you save all insurance questions for the front desk secretary. The secretary will have access to all of your insurance deductibles, co-pays, and authorizations. 

How long will my test take?

Each test can vary in time. Some of the less complicated testing such as an x-ray can take as little as 5 to 10 minutes. Other testing such as Nuclear Thyroid testing requires 2 visits in a 24-hour period in order to verify start and end results to the test. Depending on the modality and type of test performed your test times can vary. If you are having several tests done on the same day, please verify with the secretary the time of each test, he or she can provide you a window of time that it will take so you can plan your day accordingly. 

Will I need someone to pick me up & drop me off for my test?

In most cases, you can go in and out of the test without any down time. The only test, which we require transportation would be an MRI in which a sedative was administered for a claustrophobic patient.
