Our MS Imaging Center
The IMSMP is proud to offer our patients the convenience of a MRI Suite in the same building as your doctor’s office. We listened to our patients' state their frustrations of scheduling a MRI, attempting to have reports and discs sent to the right location and the lack of assurance that their doctor receives these important scans in a timely fashion. In order to alleviate these concerns and inconveniences, we have constructed a MRI Suite on the third floor of our building. This allows our patients to arrive at the IMSMP, have their scheduled MRI performed and then be escorted to the 4th floor for their office visit. Your doctor will be able to immediately read and review your MRI.
If your physician requests a MRI to be performed, prior to scheduling the appointment, the MRI department will verify your insurance, contact you to schedule the appointment, discuss any financial responsibility you may have and ask some pre-screen questions to ensure your safety, such as if you have a pacemaker or any surgically implanted devices. The MRI staff (pictured below) will perform any bloodwork your physician has requested or is necessary for the MRI.
It's advisable to inform the office of any insurance changes so that we have the most updated information on record.
If you need medication prior to your MRI, the staff can assist in obtaining the medication.
The MRI Suite is open 6 days a week, Monday - Saturday, with flexible times for scheduling. To schedule an appointment please call 212-265-8070
*The MRI Suite uses Siemens 3 TESLA scanners. These machines offer excellent image quality, superb diagnostic capabilities and exceptional patient comfort. Our patients deserve the most advanced imaging services available.
