Provided by VRI, a RadNet Company, the LifeConnections health center offers you convenient access to digital x-ray services. You can bring a referral from any doctor. X-ray is a simple, painless medical test that can help your doctor provide you with appropriate treatment. It's a fast, easy and safe way for your doctor to view and assess conditions ranging from broken bones to pneumonia to cancer. Many different types of x-rays, such as bone or chest x-rays, exist. The type your doctor uses depends on what part of your body needs examining and for what purpose.
X-ray services are available Monday-Friday, 9 am - 1 pm and 2 pm - 6 pm with a referral from a doctor. Appointments are not required. For more information, please contact the health center at (408) 424-2000.
The health center provides routine adult and pediatric specimen collections for diagnostic testing and screening. Sometimes special preparation is required to improve the accuracy of a test. This may involve fasting (not eating any or certain foods) for several hours or even overnight, drinking more or less water than usual, or avoiding certain medications or vitamin and herbal supplements before the test. Your physician should provide you with written instructions for preparing for your test. If you did not follow the test preparation instructions you received from your physician, let the staff at the specimen collection lab know about this before your specimen is collected.
Appointments for specimen collection or lab draws are recommended, although we do accept walk-in visits. We accept referrals from outside providers.
