The staff was amazing! they were so friendly and professional. One of the best experiences I’ve had regarding customer service. They helped me feel relaxed , they were genuine and the facility was very clean . I’d love to go back there.
I would definitely make the 1 hour drive again to use this office. My appointment was relaxing and I was able to pick my style of music to help drown out the MRI noise. Thank you Colleen & Anita for all your help! You guys were great!
I needed a MRI quickly, they were able to get me in the same day. When I arrived the front office was very nice. Anita the Imaging Tech, was so nice, helpful and thorough in the information she gave to me. During the MRI, she checked with me several times to make sure I was comfortable and liked the music that I had requested. I’ve had other MRIs and this was a much more pleasant experience. If I ever have to have another, it will be with Gulf Coast MRI! They are the best!
