Candace Roberts, Peggy Trease, Barbara Ginn and Bob Fair welcome you to Advance Imaging.

Advance Imaging, located in the heart of Claremore at 1110 W. Will Rogers Blvd., offers ­magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a comfortable, patient-focused environment. With the first location in Tulsa, the ­company opened the Claremore facility in February of this year. “We are able to tailor our services to each individual and offer a personal touch. We focus on quality of care and treat our patients like family,” explains Peggy Trease, business ­development manager. “If you need to have an MRI, choose us for compassionate care and ­excellent, timely service.”

While it’s not the most thrilling news that doctor’s orders call for an MRI, it is ­comforting knowing that you don’t have to travel to Tulsa or anywhere else for top-notch ­service. Advance Imaging utilizes a 1.5T GE Short Bore. “The image quality of our machine will stand up to anything in the country,” explains Bob Fair, executive director of Advance Imaging. Since the scanner is of the short bore variety, people feel less claustrophobic than they would imagine.

If you’ve never had an MRI before, you may be a little afraid or intimidated. The staff at Advance Imaging does everything in their power to make you feel as comfortable as possible. This is apparent from the moment you call to set up your appointment with Patient Care Specialist Candace Roberts, as you walk through the door and are greeted with friendly, smiling faces, and throughout the entire process with Technologist Barbara Ginn.

At Advance Imaging, ­quality of care is the number one priority. Barbara Ginn, a Claremore native, performs every MRI and has 37 years of experience in her field.  According to Barbara, everyone receives ear plugs for the MRI, and she closely watches the patient throughout the entire procedure. Patients with anxiety or claustrophobia get a panic ­button, and sedation is available for adults. “My personal ­philosophy is to treat everyone the way I would want my mother to be treated,” she adds.

Barbara explains that MRI uses a giant magnet to take ­photographs, with no radiation. Typically at least a hundred photos are taken on three planes – side to side, front to back, and top to bottom. MRIs are used for a variety of orthopedic injuries – sprained knee, torn cartilage, back pain, herniated discs and sprains, as well brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and stroke. The process usually takes about 30 minutes. Advance Imaging can safely treat everyone from five years old and up.

The company is owned by Dr. Steve McCormack, a ­neuroradiologist and OU Medical School graduate. “We have the absolute best educated staff and most advanced ­technology available,” says Bob.

If your physician gives you the news that you need an MRI, remember that you have a choice. Select Advance Imaging for excellent, friendly service right in town. Same day appointments and results are available.
