AHS Newsletter Highlights Us!
Atlantic Health Solutions decided to spotlight us for their newsletter, and we're so honored. Here's what they had to say about our center: Carlsbad stands apart from the rest because they’re so personal. Technologist, Kara Lucas says, “You don’t have that medical feel when you walk in. It’s a more relaxed and inviting environment.” Not to mention the price and quick access, Carlsbad also wants their patients to feel as comfortable as possible. They’re always looking for ways to change and grow, to better themselves.
Within the city limits of Carlsbad alone there is about 1,400 acres of park space, available and utilized for special events and sporting activities. The population hovers as low as 35,000 so the small town atmosphere fosters strong communal support. Everyone knows everyone, so patients are more like family.
The office is it’s own tight-knit community, much like the surrounding town. In the past, they’ve participated in a local chili cook-off together.
Specifically, we would like to focus on Kara. She’s been Carlsbad’s technologist for almost 7 years. She loves patient interaction, saying it “feels like you’re helping the patient in their first step to receiving the medical help they need.” Kara has a degree in Radiological Technology from New Mexico State University and has her national certification for X-Ray and MRI. When she’s not in the office, she spends time working on her house, enjoying her married life, and traveling.
Honorable mentions go out to Darrek Easley, the office manager, and Amanda, the patient coordinator, who both care about each patient and really strive to go the extra mile.
Carlsbad Open MRI offers just that: an open MRI, as well as ultrasound. They’re located at 2319 West Pierce Suite A in Carlsbad, NM. You can reach them at (575) 628-1234 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
