Preparing for Your Visit


Your doctor should provide procedure-specific preparation instructions for you to follow prior to your test. Our technologists can also provide this information to you. 


Don’t expect to wait for your test. You will be taken care of at the time you were scheduled. And when it’s time to go, we’ll file your insurance for you. Plus, parking is free and close to our doors, and you can use the patient drop-off, pick-up area.

You can count on fast results – most in one day. Our special reporting system allows us to quickly get results to your doctor, and that means you hear news as soon as possible.

Accepted Insurances

We accept many healthcare insurances. If you have any questions regarding whether we accept your insurance, please call (865) 531-5400.
