Do I need an appointment?

For X-Rays, you don’t need an appointment – walk-ins are welcome during our regular hours. However, if you prefer, you can schedule an appointment for X-Rays. Ultrasounds and Mammograms do require appointments for dedicated attention. Contact one of our clinics to set up an appointment. In urgent cases, we may accommodate walk-in ultrasounds if available on the same day. Contact us to inquire.

What hours are you open?

That is dependent upon location. For more information on our hours, please visit our clinic locations page.

Should I come early for my appointment?

Please arrive 15 mins prior to you scheduled time as this will give you time to check-in.

Most ultrasounds take at least 30 minutes and Mammograms take around 20 minutes. Please follow the specific exam instructions. The time that your X-Ray takes depends on what your doctor has ordered and how many people arrived before you. For example, chest X-Ray takes approximately 5 to10 minutes, others take longer.

Can I bring my children to my exam?

We ask that you don’t bring children with you. They will not be permitted into any exam rooms with you and we do not offer supervision. If you need to bring your child with you, please bring someone to care for them in the waiting room while you are in the exam room.

Can I bring family members into the exam room?

Only you are permitted into the exam room. There is a waiting area available for any additional people that you bring. Only in special cases may your family member be permitted in the exam room.

For obstetric ultrasounds, we ask that your family member/ significant other may enter only after the medical aspect of the procedure is done. The ultrasound technician will call your family member/ significant other into the exam room after the preliminary scans are performed.

For any other exams, another person may help you if you are limited in your mobility and require additional assistance. The technologist will call the additional person into the exam room when assistance is needed.

What if I have mobility issues?

All of our clinics are fully handicap accessible. We ask that you kindly advise us of any limitation of mobility prior to your exam so we can better accommodate you. If you are unable to get on the exam table yourself, please bring someone who can assist you.

Will I have to undress?

Depending on the part of the body that is being examined, you may have to change into a gown. We ask you to do this so that we can get the clearest picture possible. Clothes create artifacts and can make it much harder to see your bones and organs clearly.

Will I have to remove my jewelry or hair clips?

You need to take off any items if they are in the same area as the part of your body being examined including piercings. They may be in the way, or they may show up on your X-Ray film and can hide important information.

Are pets allowed?

Only trained guide dogs, hearing dogs, or service dogs are allowed in the clinic.

How and when will I get my results?

We send your test results to your doctor as soon as possible. If your doctor does not have your results within one week, please ask your doctor to contact us.
