In order to maximize the effectiveness of your visit here, it is important that our physicians can view any and all radiology films and reports that you have had. Please contact the hospital or facility where the imaging study was performed and request a CD containing your images be made.  Please pick up this CD and bring it with you to your appointment to allow our doctors to directly view the imaging studies.  CDs can usually be supplied to a patient at the time the imaging study is performed.
