Do I need a doctor’s order to schedule an imaging study?
An authorized healthcare provider must order all of our examinations, and we do not perform a study without a copy of that order. Why? Having the order in hand not only insures that we know what your healthcare provider wants done – and why – but also allows us to communicate important information back to his/her office, so that you can get the appropriate care. This is also a legal requirement. How do you get the order? You may bring the order with you, or your doctor’s office may fax one or send an on-line requisition to us. If we receive the order in our office BEFORE your exam, we can investigate special circumstances or check with your provider then, saving time on the day of your appointment.
