The time can be longer during peak hours, but we keep three separate x-ray rooms operating so as to not waste your time.

All other exams, including ultrasound and Doppler exams, CT-scans and MRI, as well as bone densitometry are by appointment. We strive to extend our hours of operation so as to have convenient appointements available.
