Testimonials & Reviews
Patient who visited Gateway Diagnostic Imaging shortly after visiting Hospital Imaging*:
To whom it may concern,
I am telling this story so other patients will not experience the same financial burden that was put upon my family.
My doctor recently ordered that I have a CT scan of my Abdomen and Pelvis and sent me to Hospital Imaging*. Scheduling was a disaster. Hospital Imaging* originally told me that they would not schedule my CT that day. I spent 2 ½ hours making repeated phone calls, verifying insurance information for Hospital Imaging*, and ultimately begging that they add me to the schedule. They finally scheduled me later that day but at a location that was over 20 miles away from our home. The whole experience was time-consuming, highly stressful, and VERY EXPENSIVE. In fact, we had to pay $1,127.49 when we got to the appointment, despite having BCBS insurance.
Turns out these center’s costs are not apples-to-apples. Please do your research! When finding out that I could get the same CT exam for less than $400 at Gateway, I was furious! My wife and I work very hard to earn the money we make and we do not want to waste thousands of dollars on an exam that some other places charge only a few hundred dollars. My family, friends, and physician now know to seek out places, like Gateway, that charge insurance prices that are so much less than hospitals!
*Note: The actual name was changed to Hospital Imaging for legal reasons.
