Preparing for Your Diagnostic Imaging Visit

What you need to do to prepare for your visit to Diagnostic Professionals, Inc. in Broward County, Florida will depend on the type of diagnostic imaging procedure you will be having. Prior to your appointment, our staff will give you more specific instructions. In general, here are good ways to prepare for your radiology procedure at DPI:

  • Download our patient information forms and fill them out before you arrive to your appointment, if possible.
  • Ensure you have proper directions to the DPI location you’ll be visiting.
  • Make sure you come to the appointment wearing loose, comfortable clothing, preferably without metal zippers or snaps.
  • Bring the prescription that your physician gave you for your procedure, or email us your prescription in advance.
  • Bring any previous imaging studies of your body area being examined, if you have them, to your appointment.
  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time to complete any paperwork and change out of your clothes if needed. We may ask you to arrive earlier depending on whether you need medications before your procedure.
  • Bring your insurance card and photo identification to your appointment.
  • Depending upon your insurance, we may need to collect a co-pay at your appointment.
  • If you know that your radiology procedure will involve sedation or pain medication, ask someone to accompany you to drive you home after your appointment.
