Orlando imaging center offers complimentary transportation for their patients

Online PR News – 04-June-2012 – Maitland, FL – Orlando, FL – Open MRI of Orlando (OMRI) announces the purchase of a new vehicle to bring patients who need transportation to their Maitland location. This complimentary transport service is especially valuable for claustrophobic or anxious patients who need on-site sedation before having an MRI scan. Patients are relaxed during the scanning process, and afterwards, they have safe transportation to their home or office. In all cases, patients do not have to worry about arranging a ride with friends or family, and they do not have to deal with the hassles of traffic.

The new service is just one way Open MRI of Orlando demonstrates its commitment to superior patient care. They are dedicated to making an MRI scan a more comfortable experience for all patients, including children, obese patients, and those who suffer from anxiety disorders or claustrophobia. Our MRI machine is open on four sides of the body, as opposed to a traditional MRI machine, which is a closed tube. CEO Clayton Swalstad says, "Open MRI [of Orlando] continues to keep a primary focus on our family of patients and fellow Orlando residents that suffer from claustrophobia."

Every patient who needs an MRI is treated with compassion by caring and experienced staff. Patient care goes beyond the MRI scan itself in several unique ways at OMRI:

* Same day appointments are offered, and full x-ray service is available without an appointment.
* OMRI handles all insurance pre-authorizations for patients.
* Hours are based on patients’ schedules, with early or late appointments available.
* Anti-anxiety medication is provided for claustrophobic patients.
* OMRI can accommodate patients weighing up to 550 pounds.
* On-site radiologists read the scans for quick response.

Patients have responded favorably both to the care and transportation service. One satisfied patient declares, "I can’t say enough about the transportation department at Open MRI. They are always on time and … I appreciate them so much."
