One little problem with this facility, and a heads up for anyone needing hip area X-rays:

I was having severe pain in my hip joint area and the doctor wanted a X-ray, so instead of going to Mascaras, I decided to try the new place in the Laguna Mall since it was closer.  When my turn came, I was instructed to undress; don one of those semi-garments and to call when ready.  I did that and then was told to climb up two VERY steep steps to a wooden platform. There was no railing or grip to assist the process and even had there been, the pain was in the way.  The operator, a very sturdy young man, came and sort of lifted me up the steps.  Then the xray was taken. After that, I was in so much more pain that I had trouble making it to the car.

The age group living here often has hip problems, so a setup like they have in that place is NOT okay.  I've had numerous X-rays done at Mascaras without going through anything like that.  Hopefully, they will get the proper equipment to take this kind of film in the future at the new place.

Gringal, I had the same problem as he was x-raying my hip and knee.  After the debacle with the hip, he then told me I needed to stand up straight and hold the film cartridge behind me.  When I asked him how in the world I would do that he took my arms, straightened them, pushed them behind my back and had me clasp the film.  This was painful for my arms and neck as it was heavy.  I told him he needed to hurry as I could not hold it for very long.  He went behind the partition and then proceeded to tell me I had to hold it lower.  When I bent my knees in order to get it lower he told me I had to have them straight!!  I told him that was too bad because my arms were not long enough to put the thing in the position he wanted it.  He came in, took me down and laid me on the table for the knee x-ray.  Needless to say, it will be a long time before I try that again. :)

I recently had to have 2 back xrays there. That is normally done in a vertical position but not on top of a 2 foot stand with only one step up. The equipment did not appear new. The latest xray machines are digital and this one certainly was not. I also will not be going back

I had to hold the X-ray board while I bent a painful knee in different positions. Old machine and no lead protection for the patent. Old machines put out many much more radiation than new ones, so you are taking a risk. Are there any newer x-ray centers lakeside?

Sandrita was asking about the place opposite QC on Interlago Plaza. Gringal, you mentioned the place you went to is on Laguna Plaza?

My error.  It is across from Quality Care.  I would not recommend going there.  Mascaras Clinic is a better choice,  IMO.

I agree what all of you went through sounds like the middle ages. I have two conflicting thoughts. One is to let your doctor and them know show them without names these comments. Second is if they are really experts in this business, they should already know how to set up a diagnostic lab so I question the accuracy of what they do .
