Is it safe to schedule medical imaging during COVID-19?

We are in unprecedented times with the COVID-19 pandemic. While many events and activities have been put on hold, one thing everyone should maintain is their regular health appointments, screenings and any medical imaging. It is normal to feel stressed during this time, but by maintaining your care you are doing something beneficial for your health.

When you visit RDC, you may notice a few changes in our delivery of care:

When you call to schedule your exam you will be asked a series of health-related questions to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Prior to your appointment, you will receive a secondary follow up call/notification to check to see if any new symptoms or exposures may have taken place since you initially scheduled.

Day of appointment
At the entry of RDC facilities, you will be screened, have your temperature taken and asked to wear a mask or face covering. We are strictly enforcing a mask-wearing policy inside our facilities. If you do not have a mask, you will be given one. Once inside, we are practicing social distancing. All patients are asked to attend appointments alone (unless approved for guests) to avoid any crowding.

What you can expect from RDC and Staff
We are following CDC, state and local government guidelines for the well-being of patients and staff. All RDC staff are screened daily upon starting a work shift. All of our team members will be wearing protective gear throughout the day. We have increased the cleaning and disinfecting process to multiple times a day in common areas and continue our regular practice of cleaning and disinfecting after every patient exam in every modality.
