Preparing for Your Radiology Appointment

Appointment Scheduling:

We ask that patients please follow the instructions provided to you by our scheduling coordinators. Our coordinators work side-by-side with our radiologists and will provide specific instructions regarding your appointments.

Many of our online resources provide general information that give you an idea of what to expect, but our coordinators will provide specific details that will be pertinent to your personal imaging.

Arriving for Your Appointment:

The appointment time given to you by the scheduler is your arrival time, not your imaging time. On average, the time you are given is 30 to 45 minutes before your actual appointment. This allows time for you to register and complete any processes needed before your exam. It is important for you to arrive at the time assigned to ensure your visit goes well.
