scary

i'm very claustrophobic and was hoping i could deal with this. i had a stand up mri once and that was the best. my doctor preferred me going for the open mri instead for my back. the people working there were lovely. unfortunately, i just couldn't bring myself to go into that machine. there wasn't that much difference between a closed and open mri as far as i was concerned. i would only do stand up now no matter what.

THE WORST EXPERIENCE AT DOVE OPEN MRI....

Anyone reading this might think I was just having a bad day.....but please read on. So I arrived 45 mins before my appointment time, I filled all the paperwork out.....they kept me waiting one and half hours(after my appointment time), then Oga comes along and is impatient from the start as she is running behind....well, I knew this was a bad omen.....for someone who is very claustrophobic. I asked for music, Oga said that I might not like what they had but if I had my own I could use (!) no one mentioned that one could do this (bring your own music!)...the headphones she gave me were kind of like a child's plastic stethoscope....it would not even stay in my ears, she became more impatient....I very nicely said ""you should be more patient with people who are claustrophobic"" she replied instantly in a tone that made me even more nervous....""I am very patient""....anyway needless to say my experience there and with OGA was the worst of the worst. I wasted my whole morning there 3hours! I have to say though OGA made it worse. I might have been able to deal with it if I had music in my ears but she was so impatient dealing with me, it was TERRIBLE.

Great Customer Service

Being a claustrophobic I was very nervous about going for an MRI despite my doctor's insistance. However, I was referred to Dove Open MRI by my doctor's office and so I visited this location for my study.

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised and immedicately felt relaxed after the staff welcomed me. In tears I had explained to Colleen how scared I was and she sat with me to comfort me through the entire study. Without their polite attitude I would not have been able to complete this examination.

I thank you all, especially Colleen and Oga for your patience.

Regards, Ms Teri.

Wonderful Staff and Service

My mother is 88 years old and had to have an MRI on both of her shoulders and right elbow, which means we needed to make 3 trips to Dove.

The staff was kind, patient and very considerate of my mothers needs. I am very grateful for the patience and gentleness that Tony showed my mother. Because of the kindness that Tony showed her, I was not stressed about bringing her back, and this made my life so much easier.

The star says it all...

I have had a number of open MRI's, both in the suburbs and in Manhattan. I never had a problem even though I have a mild case of claustrophobia. When I needed to have an MRI in Manhattan on an urgent basis, I checked some websites and chose Dove because I wanted to ""be greeted with a smile and treated in a caring and respectful manner"". A ""friendly relaxed atmosphere"" sounded really good, too.

In less than 10 minutes of my arrival, I was upbraided by a staff member for taking a business call that I had been expecting for over a week. The waiting room was empty and my call didn't seem to bother anyone behind the glass-windowed office except this staff member. When I got to the MRI room, I was told that the music/headphones system hadn't been working for two weeks(!) but I was offered a cheap pair of sponge ear plugs to wear if I wanted. Well, in my experience an MRI sounds just like a jackhammer which is why one usually gets music to listen to and sound-cancelling headphones to wear. Although the technician was politely apologetic, I had my doubts about my ability to remain stock still for 45 minutes while listening to that amount of ear-splitting noise. The deal breaker for me was the machine itself. I actually tried getting under it for a minute before full-blown claustrophobia set in. Three strikes were enough for me. I left.
