What about X-rays and scans? Same day X-ray appointments can be arranged. Local Ultrasound, CT and MRI scan appointments can usually be arranged within 7 days.

I have had previous tests; do I need to repeat them with you? Not necessarily. Please bring any test results or reports with you in order that you can be advised appropriately.
