If you live with day in and day out discomfort of chronic pain, you know that it can get unbearable quickly. But with COVID-19 floating around, the last thing most people want to do is don the infamous mask and visit the hospital.
However, now that society is starting to emerge from restrictions and is getting back to normal life, taking care of that miserable chronic pain is probably at the top of most people’s back-to-normal-life list.
Scheduling an MRI is not a simple process — especially if you’re in pain. A typical process includes visiting your doctor, possibly being referred to a specialist, getting an MRI order from them, scheduling an MRI at a hospital and so on. At this point, you might be several weeks out from the initial decision to relieve your chronic pain.
Avoid the hospital
Even with the state moving from a moderate risk to low risk, many people are still concerned about visiting a hospital—and with good reason. Many hospitals are still limiting visitors to one person. To avoid that tangle of safety complexities, just skip that step and all of the above.
TaylorMed MRI is the way to cut out the middleman and all of the precursory steps to finding chronic pain relief. Kevin Taylor, M.D. figured out an easier and more simplified process for people to get an MRI without the long process and high cost.
Getting an MRI at TaylorMed is a flat fee of $399. Compared to the $2,611 average fee of a hospital MRI in the U.S., it’s a price you can’t beat. You also won't sacrifice quality at TaylorMed—Dr. Taylor only uses the best equipment. Their MRI machine has a 1.5T magnet and is the gold standard of image quality.
Get straight to the pain point
Chronic pain doesn’t wait for anybody, and you shouldn’t have to either. At TaylorMed, you can get a same-day appointment for an MRI with results emailed to you within 24 hours. Taylor is a board-certified radiologist, so you can trust the assessment you get.
Once you get your MRI report, you can take it those results directly to your doctor. It saves you time and money, is more convenient, and bridges the gap between the diagnosis and healing.
"This is a way for patients to take their healthcare into their own hands and save time and money while doing it," Taylor said.
Safety is not sacrificed
While it’s not a hospital, Taylor and his team recognize the urgency and importance of keeping their office a safe place for everyone.
They disinfect the magnet in the MRI machine after every patient as well as the locker room after every use. You’re also allowed to bring your own protective equipment such as respiratory masks.
With their low staff count, staggered appointment times and extra cleaning protocols, you can be rest assured Taylor and his staff are doing all they can to keep you safe.
