COVID-19 Notice

Radiology Affiliates Imaging is open and providing care at both of our imaging centers. Screening exams have resumed at all of our sites. Based on guidance from the CDC, state and federal governments, and national radiology leaders, RAI has modified our policies and procedures. These important changes will help keep you safe.

All patients must be screened before their visit, so you cannot walk-in for your exam. We ask that you call to schedule all of your imaging studies and when you need to visit to pick up medical records. Please wear a mask and bring your own pen. If you want more information, please click here to see a detailed list of what RAI is doing to protect our patients...
