Will I need X-rays?

When making your appointment, you may have a question as to whether you need X–rays, MRI, CAT scan, or other testing. It is very important that, if you have had any of these tests, you bring them with you. Do not just bring a report from the radiologist or radiology center. We’ll obtain X-rays here in the office, and if necessary, recommend an MRI. If your insurance company allows, we may be able to perform that MRI right here in the office and review it together.
