Now and then, we hear from some of our patients about their experience with Glendale MRI Institute. Sometimes when patients come to us for important tests, such as CT scans and lung cancer screening, they do so with a lot of nervousness about their results. It’s a pleasure to work with these patients because we want to give them the peace of mind they need, along with the results they’re looking for. Here is one patient’s story.
I quit smoking a long time ago. Unfortunately, I had been a pack-a-day smoker for about 30 years before I finally realized that I needed to stop. When I quit, I quit cold turkey, and I know it was the best decision I ever made. In just a few months, I started to feel better. I was breathing better than ever, I could taste food again, I smelled flowers…it was a great feeling. I thought I was out of the woods.
A few years went by, and I started noticing some rattling in one of my lungs. I wasn’t feeling the best anymore, and I started to get nervous about lung cancer. I hoped that I had stopped smoking in time, but my doctor was suspicious enough to order some tests. There was a part of me that just wanted to live in ignorance. I was very scared to get the tests done because I didn’t want to face the bad news…if there was any.
My doctor suggested I go to Glendale MRI Institute for my CT scan and lung cancer screening. He told me that their caring staff would help put my mind at ease, and he said he couldn’t think of a more peaceful environment for these important tests. I am so glad he sent me to you. You have a beautiful facility, and even though the deductible on my insurance is pretty high, your prices were excellent and very affordable.
I was lucky. My tests all came back negative. I want to thank you for seeing me through what was a scary time in my life. I know I’ll be back if I ever have any suspicious symptoms in the future. I would recommend your services to anyone who was in my position. Thanks for everything!
What a touching story, and we’re so glad the test was negative!
