Jean Hutton, grateful patient

MRI quick, accurate and close to home

My knee had been sore and swollen and my doctor thought I was probably due for a knee replacement. He recommended an MRI on the knee joint to get a base line reading for the arthritis.

Initially I’d planned to go to London, until my son-in-law, who is a doctor, said “Why don’t you go to Stratford? You won’t have the drive, you won’t have the parking problems, and you’ll have quicker results.”

He was right. The wait was much quicker than I’d expected and the results went right to my own family doctor in St. Marys. The facility was clean and modern, and the staff were knowledgeable.

I think the MRI is filling a very important need in the area—especially with the aging population—and making an essential service accessible to more people in Stratford, St. Marys and throughout the County. I’d highly recommend anybody to come here. It was wonderful.
