More Fellowship-Trained Subspecialists
The group has more fellowship-trained subspecialists than any other institution in the area, with the exception of a local teaching hospital. Many of our physicians have served and are currently serving in executive leadership roles in state and local medical organizations in an effort to preserve the quality of healthcare.
West County Radiological GRoup is a hospital-based radiology group. The radiologiosts do not own any imaging centers or imaging equipment. Therefore, we have no conflicts of interest that would encourage us to suggest any unnecessary follow up studies. We treat our patients just like we would like to be treated; with courtesy, respect, and understanding. Our goal is to get results to the referring physicians within a metter of hours if a routine study is overed, and within minutes if the situation is more critical. We work with our hospitals to ensure that these studies reach the referring physicians’ offices promptly.
