but it is your CHOICE where you can go!
5 Reasons Why You Should Choose Houston MRI® & Diagnostic imaging
The cost of an imaging study at a hospital owned imaging center can be 2 to 6 times more than at Houston MRI® & Diagnostic Imaging. Why?!
- Less Overhead. With fewer layers of management, less hours of operation and no government bureaucracy, Houston MRI® passes those savings to you…the patient! Giving you more $$$ to use for the treatment of your condition!
- More Focused Services. Houston MRI® specializes in performing the more common, non-invasive radiology tests which do not require hospital level care. This affords further savings to you and also quicker exam times since hospitalized patients are not in your way.
Your time is valuable, and we respect your time at Houston MRI ®.
