McKINNEY — For people living outside major cities across the United States, like those in McKinney, access to high-quality healthcare services may be limited.

By opening its location in McKinney, Envision Radiology seeks to break down travel distance and to open up access to outpatient imaging services.

"We are proud to be a part of the McKinney community and to be able to serve its providers and patients," stated Brandon Turman, Area Marketing Director. "Our facility will provide McKinney citizens, and similar North Dallas surrounding communities a first class experience when receiving their critical imaging services."

With close to 200 physicians practicing in the immediate area, Envision Imaging of McKinney’s location is well-suited to serve them.

"Most patients have been forced to travel to Plano, Allen, Frisco or even Dallas to receive MRI- and CT-related services," continued Turman. "Because we are so conveniently located, doctors can make referrals to our center and feel that we are an extension of their offices, helping to provide superior care and service to their patients with our friendly technologists and staff to answer questions."

The newest Envision center will have an onsite radiologist, Dr. Jonathan Bard, who will serve also as Medical Director of the facility. Dr. Bard has been practicing Radiology since 1999 and is well respected in the Radiology industry, and has a subspecialty in Neuro Radiology.

"With an on-site radiologist at the facility and same day appointments, we are guaranteeing same day report turnaround," said Turman. "For a patient who is in pain, that turnaround time can mean a quicker diagnosis and start of treatment." The McKinney center creates a comfortable, welcoming environment by offering refreshments, comfortable seating, fresh baked cookies and high-speed internet access to patients and visitors.

The facility boasts high end state of the art GE equipment, which is ran by technologists who are genuinely concerned for patient care, and have many years of combined experience.

The McKinney opening brings the total to 18 locations for the company in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
