I have had seven MRIs in the last 18 months with the last two at St. Charles Imaging. How I wish I had the other five here as well! I am EXTREMELY claustrophobic and this is the ONLY machine that I felt somewhat comfortable in. I wasted my time with open MRIs only to find that the imaging is not nearly as clear or complete as closed MRIs, and the other closed MRIs I had been in were so confining that the experience (even with the help of several Vicodin!) was very traumatic for me. This new machine at St. Charles Imaging is truly much bigger than any other MRI I have been in and therefore not as stressful for people like me who have extreme claustrophobia. I would highly recommend it. Also, the staff is fantastic - professional, caring, and kind, and they do their best to get your insurance pre-approved in a timely manner and your appointment scheduled immediately, unlike other MRI facilities I have been to. I highly recommend St. Charles Imaging.
Friendly staff. If MRI tests are not your cup of tea, this is the facility for you. You are made to feel more than comfortable. Ask all the questions you want you won't be made to feel dumb. This MRI is the FASTEST MRI that I have ever experienced. Emily the office manager is never without a smile and is super smart. You will find answers to questions. Also this MRI machine is not considered open, (I don't believe) but it sure gives you that open feeling.. I would not go any other facility. They made me feel so comfortable I honestly fell asleep. Really a great place to have your MRI. Don't be afraid call today, you won't regret it.
