Imaging studies arrive at our office via the U.S. Postal Service, UPS, FedEx or private courier . Electronic studies sent as DICOM images can be received at any time. Studies are routinely dictated within 24-48 hours of receipt. Reports will be faxed, emailed, or sent via return mail at your discretion. If there is a film finding that demands your immediate attention, Dr. Longmuir will contact you right away by telephone. STAT reads are performed when indicated.
For your convenience we accept Personal Injury cases and Worker's Compensation claims, working on an attorney lien basis. We will direct bill for our report (professional component) providing your office has billed only for the taking of x-rays (technical component). We are not an authorized Medicare provider or participating provider in any private health insurance plan and are unable to bill for these. Private pay accounts receive a professional discount when payment accompanies the film studies to our office. We will interpret up to and including 13 sectional plain film views for $45.00. This reduced fee does not apply to MRI, digital motion x-ray, diagnostic ultrasound or CT.
We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit cards as well as business and personal checks. Please contact our office for a welcome packet of our referral and assignment forms. Or, these forms can also be downloaded in English and Spanish below.
Please complete one referral form per x-ray or ultrasound series and have the authorization/lien form signed by the patient PRIOR to calling our office at (602) 274-3331 to arrange for our courtesy courier pickup. This service is offered every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with a 24 hour notice needed for pick-up the following day.
