We Are Still Open For Your Imaging Needs

Due to current concerns regarding COVID-19, we want to assure you and your patients that we are taking every extra measure to provide the highest quality advanced diagnostic imaging all the while keeping our patients and the community safe.

Hospitals are now restricting any advanced imaging. We are a small independent facility that is able to maintain high levels of sanitation and limit the number of patients in our office at one time.

We are completely sterilizing the office and equipment after every patient.

We have restricted all visitors.

We have adjusted our lobby so that we can ensure multiple patients are not in the office at the same time

We are adhering to strict social distancing guidelines.

We are screening patients and requesting patients with fevers or flu symptoms, been in contact with someone suspected to have the coronavirus or anyone that has traveled to an affected region to please call and cancel/reschedule their appointment.

We are updating our policies daily to coincide with the strictest of measures.

We are all in this together and are here for you and your patients.
