About Southeastern Radiology Associates (SeRA)
Most patients do not realize that when it comes to their screening and diagnostic imaging services, they have a choice in where those procedures will take place. Often times the patient will just go to the imaging facility their primary healthcare provider suggests. Or in some cases, that decision is left up to the nurse or scheduling department within the office. Possibly ignoring the request of you, the patient.
At SeRa we would like you to know that you do have a choice, and the final say in where you prefer to have your imaging procedures take place. And we hope you would choose SeRa. Here are the top 10 reasons our patients say they choose SeRa.

Patients are referred to SeRa by their physician and will need to have written orders with them at the time of their appointment. Patients may schedule their own screening mammogram, but will need to have a physician for us to send the report to. General x-ray services are available without an appointment Monday through Friday from 8:00a.m. to 5:30p.m.
At Southeatern Radiological Associates, we know that every patient has the ultimate choice in where they will receive their diagnostic imaging services, and we are grateful that you haven chosen SeRa.
We provide patients with detailed information to explain their test and to discuss any preparations. These are provided through their referring physician and are also available in our facilities. The completed medical report is forwarded to the referring physician who will discuss the results with the patient. Diagnostic testing provides physicians with the tools they need to treat their patients. Southeatern Radiological Associates is dedicated to provide the best possible care for our patients and referring physicians.
