      What a fantastic facility! The moment I walked in to have a scan which my physician requested, I knew I was in a patient centered facility. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I felt immediately at easy. The equipment was modern and amazing. The technician was knowledgeable and courteous. This is one of the best medical experiences I have ever had in my life and I am a senior. I have been to other facilities for imaging and the Open MRI of Asheville is superior

      The staff here were very kind and understanding. Allowed me to reschedule a few times to allow my mom to come with me. The nurse who performed my CT was wonderful and understood when I had a panic attack getting the IV. That’s just something that happens when I get an IV, it is not at all a reflection of the nurse. She was kind and consoled me and stopped the procedure when I asked. Next time I visit, I’ll take some medication ahead of time to better prepare myself. Overall, I had a very good experience here and would recommend their facility to anyone.

      I have never felt more comfortable in a medical setting. The staff at the front desk and in the imaging area were very professional. They were very informative and made you feel very at ease. It's not always fun having an medical issue requiring an MRI, but knowing that there are places like Open MRI out there, I won't be near as nervous should I find myself coming back. Thanks!!
