      My wife has been to this facility on 2 occassions both for cts with contrast. This means a large needle is needed. Both times she had no bruising or blown veins. This team is wonderful. Starting with appointments very kind to call with cancellation so she could be seen as speedy as possible. Following up with payment. We had to pay with change and 1 dollar bills. They were kind and received payment without making her feel belittled. Thank you staff for everything.

      I had my first-ever CT scan this morning. The day they received the order from my doctor, Panama City Open MRI called to schedule an appointment. They were courteous and professional over the phone and walked me through what needed to be done. I arrived later that day to pick up the barium I'd need to drink and was served right away. I even had flavor choices!! With the barium (in a paper tote bag) I was given clear instructions on when and how to drink it. No questions needed! Yesterday, I received a call reminding me of my 8:00 am appointment, letting me know exactly what my co-pay would be based on my insurance, and informing me, "No need to arrive earlier; we've built in the time for you to fill out paperwork, so you can come right at 8:00 am." (Nice!) My paperwork was actually on an iPad and most of it was pre-filled for me. But I think where they really shone was through Ms. Donna, the CT scan tech. She embodies the warmth and appeal of Southern hospitality and I swear she is walking in her calling. I was admittedly nervous, but she let me know what to expect at every step with a calm demeanor and good humor. As much as she could make it a good experience, she did - and I'm so grateful. I actually hugged her before leaving! None of us really wants to be in a position where we need to get an MRI or CT scan or any of this -- but Panama City Open MRI & Imagining makes it the best experience they can. If I need another scan for anything, I'll be making my appointment here.

      I unfortunately am claustrophobic and smll spaces causes me have panic attacks. An MRI scares me to death. I had to have one done recently and my orthopedic surgeon prescribed me a seditive type med to help me relax and have the test done. HOWEVER, I took the 3 valum as directed but I was WIDE AWAKE the whole time. The young lady started the test but immediately had to stop and I could not do the test that day. So, I was refered to Panama City Open MRI and I did not have a seditive this particular day, but I went anyway. When I arrived and was called to the back by Alex, the nurse/tech and he was soooooo nice and understanding. As he explained the process, I immediatly began to panic and cry, and he walked me into the testing area and assured me he would be right there and what he would do if I wanted to stop the test. Alex made sure I was comfortable and seemed to genuinly care about my fear. Alex placed a white washcloth over my eyes and talked me through the entire process and I DID IT!!! THANKS ALEX FOR BEING AWESOME AT WHAT YOU DO!!!!
