“From the first call with Vista Health to the MRI itself, the service has been exceptional.”
After being told she needed jaw surgery to rule out intracranial hypertension, Anna chose Vista Health for a brain MRI scan.
Why did you decide to have an MRI scan?
My surgeon needed to rule out cerebral hypertension before operating on me because I'm having jaw surgery. As a result, my primary care physician referred me to Vista Health for a brain MRI.
Describe the service you experienced.
An MRI brain scan with Vista Health was recommended by my surgeon. After contacting my GP, I was unable to schedule an appointment until four weeks. This worried me since I wanted a diagnosis as soon as possible so that I could proceed with my surgery. I contacted Vista Health's patient care team, who scheduled me for a next-day GP appointment. After that, a radiologist examined everything and advised me on which scan I needed.
What treatment did you receive after the scan and what did it involve?
During the MRI, I suffered panic episodes due to my claustrophobia. The people who worked there were patient and considerate. The team was extremely caring, reassuring, and supportive; they waited for me and assisted me in calming down. I would not hesitate to recommend the team at Stratford. Thank you so much to Ajeesh, Madhu, and John for the amazing care provided. From the first call with Vista Health to the MRI itself, the service has been exceptional.
How has using our service benefitted your life?
The next day, I received the report from the GP that Vista Health had scheduled for my referral, and I received the full diagnosis I needed. There is no need for treatment, but I am now able to schedule my jaw surgery.
Thank you for sharing your experience. Is there anything else you would like to add?
Once again, thank you so much! When I didn’t know where to turn, Vista Health gave me direction, and now I’m able to proceed with surgery.
