What is an x-ray?
Getting an x-ray as a preventive measure is like having a snapshot of the area you can use to compare when problems do arise. At Dr. Avi Ishaaya Centers in Los Angeles, CA, we have diagnostic x-ray services for our patients on-site. An x-ray allows your medical team to take a closer look at the tissues, organs, and bones in your body without making an incision. Having a diagnostic x-ray on your medical record as a reference point is never a bad idea. When you need it most, you will have valuable information from the x-ray to compare your past and current images. For example, if you have a chest x-ray without symptoms during an annual exam, you will have a record of what your lungs looked like before. If you come in for a cough that won't go away, then you will have a before picture to have a better perspective on your lung health. Schedule an appointment with our board-certified physician in pulmonary, internal, sleep, and geriatric medicine, Dr. Abraham "Avi" Ishaaya, to discover your options in imaging with our in-house x-ray technology.
"I have known and been seeing dr ishaaya for about 7 years. He is the most knowledgeable and kind person ever. I highly recommend him!!"- E.B. / Yelp / Mar 17, 2020
"Dr. Ishaaya was so terrific and knowledgeable along with his very friendly staff. I recommend them highly. I was able to get a allergy test, a breathing test and a chest x-ray, and then the results with the Dr. in a very short amount of time. It was seamless and I really appreciated not having to make 4 different appointments to get this all done. I would highly recommend Dr. Ishaaya to everyone!!"- I.P. / Google / Mar 13, 2020

"Honestly, this doctor is a Godsend. He actually listened to me when I said I couldn't breathe. He did a bunch of tests and figured things out that no doctor had before. He was nice and patient and made sure I got out to my car on time so I didn't get towed. I'm honestly going to him for everything. Also, his office staff is beyond nice."- A.O. / Yelp / Mar 04, 2020

Who can have an X-RAY?
Adults and children can both have x-rays at our office. However, it is best for children to have limited exposure to the radiation from an x-ray. Dr. Ishaaya believes that children should only have an x-ray when medically necessary. He will only request an x-ray for a child when there are no other alternatives to diagnose a condition.
Here are some of the ways Dr. Ishaaya can use the x-ray. He can look for:
- Bone weakness
- Lung, heart, digestive health concerns
- Circulatory issues (blood clots)
- Tumors or cancerous masses
Our x-ray technicians are highly trained and certified to perform the imaging services, and will provide you with the least amount of exposure and only take the images needed. Step-by-step, our technician will walk you through the process depending on what area of your body you need to have the x-ray. In a matter of seconds, the image will be recorded.
After Your In-House x-ray
We will have a radiologist review your x-rays within a few days (depending on when you have the x-ray done) and discuss the findings with Dr. Ishaaya. We will then contact you with the results. Dr. Ishaaya may find something on an x-ray that he does not treat. When this happens, he will refer you to a local physician or specialist who can address your newly diagnosed medical condition.
