Northeast Radiology is the regional leader in high quality, premium service and high value medical imaging.
We know that healthcare costs are an important part of your family’s budget. Our charges reflect the true costs of high quality imaging and our charges are usually much lower than those of all other providers in our communities.
We understand that waiting for the results of your imaging test may cause you significant anxiety. We believe that it is your right to know your results. Our Results Now™ program can eliminate the anxiety that comes with waiting for results. At Northeast Radiology, our physicians will review your images and give you a preliminary result while you wait. In some cases, when comparison studies are not available or when advanced computer post-processing is required, it may not be possible to give you a preliminary result immediately. In these cases, we will call you as soon as your results are available.
We have expanded our Results Now™ program to offer preliminary results of biopsy procedures such as breast biopsies and thyroid biopsies. This unique service is available only at Northeast Radiology. Please speak to our scheduling or nursing personnel if you are interested in preliminary biopsy results.
Regardless of whether you choose the Results Now™ option, rest assured that a final report will be delivered to your doctor’s office rapidly. Final results are almost always available to your doctor within 24 hours. Our average report turn-around time is 2-4 hours.
Patients at Northeast Radiology who register for our patient portal can access all of their results using our secure HIPAA compliant on-line server at any time from any place. Your physicians also have on-line access to your results and images using our secure server.
Imaging Costs – High Value Imaging:
Educate yourself and avoid unnecessary expenses.
High quality medical imaging is not cheap. Having said that, costs vary greatly between providers. In most cases, your out of pocket costs at Northeast Radiology will be much lower than at other hospital and group practices in our communities. Your savings at Northeast Radiology could be hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars.
Before you schedule your imaging procedure, consider the quality of the imaging center and also the cost to you. At Northeast Radiology, our quality is second to none. All of our facilities are fully accredited by the FDA and the American College of Radiology. All of our physicians are board certified and have subspecialty fellowship training. Many of our doctors are listed among America’s Best Doctors.
Once you have assured yourself of the quality at Northeast Radiology, please check with your insurance company or call us to find out what the examination will cost you. Many insurance companies now offer on-line tools to estimate your out of pocket expenses. Each imaging provider should be able to tell you what you will be expected to pay – to not do so is unethical. Make sure you ask for the complete cost. Some hospitals may bill you separately for the facility (hospital) fee and the professional (physician) fee. At Northeast Radiology, there is one global bill – no surprise charges you were not told of. If a facility refuses to tell you the cost of a test, don’t schedule it with them – they are not proud of their costs.
