X-rays are often necessary when evaluating an illness or injury. They’re an invaluable tool for deciphering the cause of whatever symptoms may be present. Whether it be a finger that is too painful to flex in any direction, a foot or ankle that you can’t seem to put all of your weight on, or anything in between. Getting an x-ray can sometimes be viewed as a hassle. At ConvenientMD, all of our clinics feature on-site state-of-the-art x-ray capabilities. In addition to providing x-ray services to urgent care patients when necessary, we also accept x-ray orders. Any patient can just walk in with their x-ray order. We will complete the x-ray and send it back to the ordering provider. We are proud to offer a better alternative to traditional imaging services at ConvenientMD clinics.
It’s important to note that while it is crucial to follow your residing State’s stay at home orders to slow the spread of COVID-19, if you need urgent medical care it is just as important not to wait and risk your illness or injury getting worse. All ConvenientMD clinics are following strict protocols to keep patients and team members safe and healthy. Learn more about ConvenientMD’s COVID-19 safety policies.
So, why should you consider ConvenientMD the next time you need to get an x-ray? Here are three reasons that point toward a more pleasant imaging experience.
1. Short Wait Times, Flexible Scheduling
Depending upon the situation, getting an x-ray done in a traditional setting can be easier said than done. Between having to schedule an appointment and dealing with excessive wait times, many patients find the entire experience to be a headache from start to finish. At ConvenientMD, the average visit is 60 minutes. Additionally, as a walk in clinic there is no appointment necessary to receive an x-ray, which means you can visit any ConvenientMD clinic any time between 8am-8pm, 7 days a week.
2. A Comfortable and Clean Environment
Most people, if asked, would agree that they’d rather not make a visit to the hospital unless absolutely necessary. ConvenientMD offers clean, comfortable waiting areas featuring complimentary beverages, flat-screen TVs, and additional amenities. Our teams work together to ensure patient comfort and satisfaction remain top-of-mind at all times. At ConvenientMD, comfort is central to the patient experience.
It’s important to note that while keeping clinics clean and sanitary is always a top priority for ConvenientMD, we are taking extra precautions at this time. To give a quick summary, all patients are screened for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the clinic, and all temperatures are taken. Anyone with suspected symptoms of COVID-19 OR a temperature of 100.4˚F or higher will not enter the clinic, and will be evaluated from their vehicle. All patients and team members must wear a mask. Plexiglass barriers are installed at check-in windows. Patients are directed to remain at least 6′ apart in the reception area.
3. Reduced Patient Costs
Cost savings is one of the most important reasons to get an x-ray at ConvenientMD. On average, our patients will save approximately 82% when compared to a hospital imaging center. This savings is applicable to individual x-rays, which means those who require multiple x-rays stand to save hundreds if not thousands of dollars by having their imaging performed at ConvenientMD. Just as with other imaging locations, x-rays are promptly sent to the ordering provider once completed.
Remember— clinics are open normal hours and x-ray services are available at all ConvenientMD locations in New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts 8am-8pm, seven days a week.
