      I must have a MRI of my brain every few years, and it is always something that I dread. Open MRI dispelled all my concerns about the procedure, which I am clearly not a novice of. Aletha was warm and reassuring, Stephan was efficient and also reassuring, allowing me a trial run so to speak. I would recommend this location to everyone!

      I HAD TAKEN MY 78 YEAR OLD MOTHER TO HAYWOOD IMAGING WHERE SHE WAS QUICKLY DISMISSED AS UNABLE TO HELP BECAUSE SHE WAS HAVING TROUBLE LAYING FLAT ON HER BACK. SHE WAS REFERRED TO ASHEVILLE OPEN AND I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO THANK THE MOST COURTEOUS STAFF (SARA) THAT I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH, AND THEN THE CARE THAT THE TECHS TOOK WITH MY MOTHER ENSURING HER COMFORT AND TAKING THE TIME TO HELP HER POSITION ON THE TABLE SO THE MRI COULD BE DONE COMFORTABLY. THIS TYPE OF CARE IS RARE TODAY AND I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. ASHEVILLE OPEN WILL ALWAYS BE MY FIRST CHOICE FROM NOW ON AND WILL BE FIRST ON MY RECOMMENDATION LIST TO ANYONE WHO NEEDS COMPASSIONATE CARE AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. THANK YOU AGAIN.

      My husband had an xray there today. He was very impressed with the whole process from scheduling, check in, exam and check out. Great Staff! He chose Open MRI because it is more affordable than the competition and because of excellent past experiences with this facility.

      I had to have an MRI with contrast done on my shoulder. Super helpful staff and was a very painless procedure. If its beautiful weather, they have rocking chairs out front of their entrance. The doctors and nurses put you at ease by explaining the procedure very clearly.
