I’m a firefighter/paramedic and so I deal with patients all the time. We always try to give that customer service that quality care and that’s what I like about Southwest Diagnostic Center for Molecular Imaging. They give you that customer service and they care about you and that impresses me. I’m kind of like one of those old-fashioned guys that when I take my automobile and to be fixed I go to the same place
because I know them and they know me. Over the years that I’ve come here I still see the same faces and they’ll say hi and they know you and I like that I like that continuity of knowing that that staff is here and that they’re capable of doing the job that was first referred here by my doctor. Honestly say they treat me like family I mean they communicate with you they tell you what’s going on they make you
comfortable and they get you through the procedure as best they can.
