To schedule an appointment, please call:
The following information is needed when scheduling a test:

Many insurance companies require ‘preauthorization' when scheduling MRI, CT scans, Nuclear Medicine PET scans, and Interventional Radiology testing.

The preauthorization number is obtained by the ordering physician and is required prior to calling Scheduling.
