Patient FAQ's

The Visit


X-Ray

If you do not bring an x-ray with you we can do one in our office.

  • What do I wear?

    If you have buttons, zippers or designs on your shirts we will give you a gown to wear.

  • Can I wear jewelry?

    Any jewelry around your neck or chest could interfere with the x-ray (i.e. necklaces, brooches, etc). We may ask that you remove any jewelry until after your x-ray is finished. Women may be asked if they are expecting and special shielding may be required.

  • I am pregnant, what now?

    Shielded will be provided and patients will only take one picture.

  • If I recently had an x-ray completed, do I need to have another?

    And will insurance cover the cost? If you bring the x-ray film with you or if we receive a written report from the physician's office where the x-ray was completed, then you may not need to have another x-ray done at our office.

  • How much is too much radiation?

    The radiation you receive in the office is very little. You will get more radiation exposure from the sun during your lifetime.
