May I ask my doctor to send me to Albany Advanced Imaging?

Of course! We work closely with and accept referrals from any licensed healthcare provider (physician, osteopathic physician, chiropractor, physician's assistant, nurse practitioner, oral surgeon, podiatrist). Most practitioners are quite receptive to their patients' requests and preferences regarding their own health care. We are proud of the high level of patient and referring provider satisfaction.

May a friend or family member accompany me?

Yes. We welcome patients and their friends or family. Please exercise good judgement with regard to the number of persons accompanying you. We are unable to provide supervision of infants or young children for patients undergoing imaging examinations.

How will I get the results of my imaging exam?

We will issue a prompt, accurate report generally on the same day as your imaging exam. You will obtain the results from the referring healthcare provider. Follow up with him/her as directed.

Many of our referring physicians have on-line access to their patients images, however we can also provide a CD of the report/image to patients on the same day as the appointment if requested.
