Our mission at Summit Radiology is to provide our community with state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services in a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment; one in which we would be happy to treat our own families.
Summit Radiology has been awarded accreditation in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR accreditation “seal” is awarded to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards in imaging. When you see the seal you’ll know the personnel are well qualified, through education and certification; the equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment you will receive; and the facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.
We focus on offering a high quality, service oriented alternative for your diagnostic imaging needs. Physicians choose Summit Radiology because we offer exceptional quality in clinical services, images and diagnoses, and ease of scheduling. Patients choose Summit Radiology because we offer compassionate care and convenience at an affordable price.
>> One Bill: When a patient goes to the hospital or other facilities for an outpatient imaging procedure they will receive two bills; one for the scan and another for the doctor’s interpretation. This often results in the patient having to pay more money out of their pocket. At Summit Radiology we will bill both the scan and the interpretation on one bill which means lower costs to the patient. In other words, NO SURPRISES- our lower overhead costs allow us to pass the savings on to our patients.
>> Exclusive Technology: We took great care in choosing the equipment to bring to the Rockford community. The Siemens Espree 1.5T Open Bore MRI was chosen for the advanced imaging technology, wide, 70cm bore, as well as the 550 lb table limit. This means comfortable environment for our patients (especially those who are larger or claustrophobic) and high quality images for our physicians. Our Siemens Somatom CT offers advance 3D imaging capabilities, lower radiation dosage and shortened scan time.
>> Fast, friendly and efficient service: Our on-site radiologists and our exclusive relationship with some of the country’s most sought-after subspecialty radiologists allows us to deliver the interpretation report in 24 hours or less. In addition we accept STAT appointments and can turn reports around quickly when needed. We strive to leave room in our schedule to handle add-ons and flexible scheduling.
>> Non-clinical environment: We have created a spa-like atmosphere that helps calm and welcome our patients. Warm colors, beautiful appointments, and peaceful surroundings help make the experience less stressful. Easy access to our facility and no long wait times.
