Important: Insurances require pre-certification for all MRI's and CT's. Should you need same-day radiology services for one of your patients, please call radiology. We will acquire the necessary information and start the pre-certification process—this usually takes up to 30 minutes. All other radiology referrals will be offered appointments after 3 days to allow for pre-certification to take place.
