AHIC lobby7313 logoPREPARING FOR YOUR X-RAY VISIT

PRIOR TO YOUR VISIT

Since there are no appointments required for X-ray examinations, prior to visiting our facility, please remember to bring your prescription from your physician, photo identification, and your insurance card. If you do not have your prescription and you were asked to come in for X-rays by your physician, please call our office to confirm that we have received it and that we have it on file.

ON THE DAY OF YOUR VISIT

  • Please wear comfortable clothing for your exam.
  • You may eat, drink, and take medications as usual unless you are advised differently.

FOLLOWING YOUR VISIT

  • Our radiologists will interpret your images and send a report directly to your doctor. Your doctor will communicate the results of your exam to you.

WHAT IS AN X-RAY?

An X-ray is a form of radiation, like light or radio waves, which can be focused into a beam. When X-rays strike a piece of photographic film or a screen, a picture is produced. Dense tissues in the body, such as bones, block (absorb) many of the X-rays and appear white on an X-ray picture. Less dense tissues, such as muscles and organs, appear in shades of gray, while X-rays that pass only through air, such as X-rays of the lungs or colon, appear black.

X-ray is Walk-In Only / No Appointments Needed

Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. (closed between 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m.)

** Please note that our X-ray suite schedules other procedures on Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings so you may be subject to a longer wait time.

For more information, please call 714-282-8160. Since X-ray is on a walk-in basis only, there is no need to schedule an appointment. The center accepts most health plans and also offers cash rates.
