Looks like I might have gallbladder issues so I need an ultrasound. My local doctor has given me a list which includes Northeast Radiology, Kingwood Radiology, Green Oak MRI, Deerbrook Diagnostic and Lonestar Radiology. Does anyone have any personal experience with any of these places? If I need surgery I will be going to the Med Center. What a way to start the year.
I had surgery recently, & the surgeon wanted an EKG & chest x-ray. He suggested Northeast. I had not met deductible at that point, & they wanted over $800. I declined, feeling it was too pricey. Went to PC doc who did EKG in his office as part of my co-pay. He suggested Deerbrook for the x-ray. They filed on my insurance, & I think it was about $24. So glad I did not pay NE the $800!
Houston Medical Imaging on Richmond. Google their website. They even offer a cash price list. You can take the doctor's order to any place to have the test done. I had an ultrasound done there and just had to pay my copay.
Thanks all. I called Green Oak but they don't do ultrasounds anymore. Finally got an appointment at Deerbrook Diagnostic for tomorrow morning. They read and report to the doctor the same day. I don't want to drag this misery out any longer than necessary.
Why drive all the way to the medical center? There are plenty of places here more than qualified to perform surgery. I had a hernia fixed at Northeast and my grandmother had her gallbladder removed there too. No issues
So I ended up using Deerbrook Diagnostics only they are now called Cleveland Regional Hospital. I met with the surgeon yesterday and the surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning. I will be so glad to get this over with. I'm so tired of chicken broth, jello & toast. On a positive note I've lost 15 lbs. and have a good jumpstart on my new diet. I would kill for a grilled chicken breast and salad at this point. LOL
