There haven’t always been so many options at our fingertips as there are today. This is amazing because it forces companies, brands, etc., to be in competition with each other in order to provide the best product for customers. If you’re in the mood to watch a movie, you have thousands of movies to select from. It allows you to choose something that fits you and increases your chance to pick a movie that you actually like!
The same can be said when it comes to your healthcare provider. From hospital locations and urgent cares to outpatient imaging centers, there are so many options for patients when it comes to diagnostic imaging. This puts the power in your hands, allowing you to pick somewhere that is affordable, provides quality services, and allows you to have a pleasant experience. After all, if you can choose anyone why would you bother picking an imaging center that wasn’t up to your standards?
At Rosetta Radiology we understand that meeting patient expectations isn’t enough, and we’ve made it our mission for over a decade to consistently exceed expectations at every level of care for our patients – from your initial appointment scheduling to your office visit, your post-procedure follow up, and beyond. Still not convinced? Here are 7 great reasons why we’re the best option for all of your imaging needs.
1. We offer a comprehensive suite of services.
Many imaging centers offer just one or two services (such as a standalone MRI center), but when you choose Rosetta for your imaging needs you’re selecting a provider that can meet your needs not just in the immediate moment, but down the line as well! We offer full diagnostic imaging services, women’s imaging services, and radiation oncology services, so whether you’re in need of an x-ray for a broken bone, a breast biopsy to potentially diagnose cancer, or radiation therapy to treat your cancer, our team is here for you.
2. We offer prior authorizations.
Prior authorizations are crucial in helping minimize patient costs, but they can be a headache to do. Here at Rosetta our team takes this work on for our patients, contacting your insurance company on your behalf prior to your visit and making sure that everything that needs to be approved is approved before you even step foot in the door. That gives you freedom to focus on what’s most important: your health.
3. Our turnaround times for scan results are significantly faster than the competition’s.
Instead of having to wait a decent amount of time, we offer 24-hour reporting. Your results will be sent to your physician the next day!
4. Our radiologists are onsite.
Many patients don’t realize that many imaging centers employ offsite radiologists rather than onsite radiologists. In many cases these radiologists don’t live in the same city or even the same state as the center that you visited. Instead, the photos from your imaging scan are sent to them through a secure platform and then they “read” (i.e. diagnose) the images remotely. This might not seem like it matters, but the downside to this type of imaging is that many offsite radiologists do remote reading for many imaging centers, so they have a high volume of scans waiting to be looked at. They’re not familiar with your specific history or background, they don’t know you personally, and oftentimes they’re not available for follow-up. Patients usually wait longer to get their results, and in some cases things might be missed because the radiologist is unaware of certain things in your medical history.
At Rosetta our radiologists work onsite, which means they’re here at our facility all the time! Patients get to interact with them personally, can ask additional questions, and receive results from their scans either in person or over the phone much more quickly than they would from an offsite radiologist. This is a huge benefit, especially if you are waiting for results about a potential cancer diagnosis.
5. We do not charge a reading fee.
Centers that utilize offsite radiologists often-times charge patients an additional fee for the radiologist to read or interpret your scan, and in many cases this additional fee comes as a surprise to the patients. We understand just how important transparency is, and we go out of our way to make sure that all costs are communicated clearly upfront before services are rendered so that patients are fully aware of their financial responsibility for the procedure (if any).
6. We don’t make you feel like a number.
Although we offer a huge suite of services, at the end of the day we’re a small, local business that focuses on forging relationships with patients and positively impacting our community. When you come here for your annual mammogram each year you’ll find comfort in knowing the technologist who performs the scan, and you’ll get to enjoy that more personalized experience that comes with choosing a small imaging center over a large hospital where you’re just one more unfamiliar face in the crowd.
7. Our staff is amazing.
From our radiologists and technologists to our incredible front office staff, hands down the best thing about Rosetta Radiology is the people that work here. Our team is a tight-knit group, and one of the biggest things they have in common is their passion for our patients. We truly care about each and every person who walks through our door, and we’re committed to making sure that all of our patients receive the highest level of care possible!
We know that you have options when it comes to selecting your imaging provider or your cancer team, and we’re grateful to our patients for continuing to trust us over the competition with their care. If you live in the Manhattan area and are in need of diagnostic imaging, women’s imaging, or an experienced radiation oncology team, please take some time to speak with our imaging experts and see if we’re the right fit for your needs. You won’t regret it!
