Noted Diagnostic Radiologists Joan Werber, D.O., Ahmed Farag, M.D., C.M., Join Forces to Create Diagnostic Imaging Specialists of Chicago
Date:11/23/2009

CHICAGO, Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of the Chicago area's leading Board Certified Diagnostic Radiologists are introducing a new era in women's breast imaging, coupling the latest technology in digital mammography, bone density and diagnostic ultrasound with the ability to have the full range of digital imaging completed, diagnosed and discussed with the patient before she leaves the office. Drs. Ahmed Farag and Joan Werber are delivering this patient-friendly approach, without the current 6-9 month wait for an appointment commonly found in Chicago, from their new offices at 60 East Delaware Place, Suite 1410.

"Joan has set the standard in women's breast imaging in Chicago over the last two decades, and I'm excited to be working with her," said Dr. Farag, the Harvard-trained former Chairman of Radiology at Lake Forest Hospital and a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada. "For most women," he explains, "the process of breast imaging typically involves waiting several months for an appointment, having one imaging test done at the initial appointment, waiting a couple of days for results to determine if a follow-up diagnostic procedure is warranted, returning to the office several days later for the follow-up test, and having only limited, follow-up consultations at best with the radiologist.

"We launched Diagnostic Imaging Specialists of Chicago to eradicate that entire mess for our patients and turn the painfully protracted process into a streamlined single office visit. With our cutting edge digital technology, we can discuss the results with the patient within minutes of completing the diagnostic imaging. And we can send the results electronically anywhere in the world that same day. Of course, if a surgeon prefers film or CD, we can deliver that as well."
