Valued Partner – The following Message Is An Important Update Regarding Imaging Associates Response to COVID-19
Imaging Associates continues to adjust our COVID-19 stance to address rapidly changing Federal and State guidelines out of our deep concern for our shared patient’s health. The steps taken to date are as follows: · We are going above and beyond throughout the day in wiping down ALL touchpoints with a disinfectant made to kill the Coronavirus and our staff is continuously engaged in complying with personal hygienic practices recommended by the CDC. · We have removed specific touchpoints such as coffee pots, magazines, surveys to minimize unnecessary surface contact. · We are contacting our patients the evening before their exam and asking them if they have traveled out of the state in the last 14 days and if they have, we are rescheduling their exam 14 days out from the date of their return. We are also asking our patients if they are experiencing a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing to call us and reschedule and recommend them to contact their Primary Care Manager if they hadn't done so already. Regarding patients presenting themselves with COVID-19 symptoms, we will direct them to contact their Primary Care Manager. · We have eliminated our waiting room! We adjusted our scheduling practice and placed "time buffers" between our patient’s appointments. Our goal is that when our shared patients show for their respective diagnostic exams that they are met by our technologist and escorted directly to the modality as we do not want them in a waiting room with other patients. We have taken the aforementioned measures to help our community care partners like you maintain access to quality diagnostics and to ensure our shared patients may continue to seek timely primary and specialty care close to home, and in turn, avoid overloading our communities ERs / Hospitals during this ongoing crisis. My CEO (Ward Hinger) and I will continue to adjust our posture to comply with Federal and State guidelines and provide a safe environment for our shared patients and staff. Please feel free to share any feedback you may have at [email protected] Sincerely, Dr Gerald E. York Medical Director ~ Imaging Associates ... See MoreSee Less

👏👏👍. We’ll be there this week.

Always kind, always a gentleman!😊
The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it
I Hope you were taking those Measures on March 5 ? I had a bone Scan and got sick on the 9th of March ! Very bad sore throat , cough, Chills, fatigue, still not feeling good!

It was a fabulous evening - Having worked with some of these ladies in community partnerships to support events like Fur Rondy and the Alzheimer's Resource of Alaska, it was our pleasure to host the first (of many :) ) Mammogram parties for this group!
