Yes. If there is a specific physician from our group who you’d like to see for any exam or procedure, please ask your referring physicians office to request that doctor or request the doctor yourself if you are calling to schedule an exam. Schedulers at all of our sites have access to our monthly schedule and can ensure you will see whichever physician you choose.
A good rule of thumb is to allow roughly 30-60 minutes for any imaging exam and 2-3 hours for any procedure (i.e. biopsy, injection, etc.).
Please either inquire about this with your referring physician office or with the scheduling staff at any of our facilities. A copay is often also associated with exams and procedures and you may also ask about this before your visit.
Results from any imaging study (i.e. x-ray, CT scan, etc.) will be available the same day of the exam. Results from procedures such as biopsies are generally available in 1 week or less.
