There’s no convenient time to get sick. And with all the work and family obligations confronting many of us each day, often there’s no convenient time to schedule a doctor visit for a health issue such as a cold, flu, earache, or sinus infection. As a result, too many people simply endure unpleasant symptoms rather than seek the care they need.
Imaging Central, a locally owned and operated outpatient imaging center located at 7111 W. Central Ave. in Toledo, takes pride in offering convenient access to advanced diagnostic imaging services in a comfortable, inviting environment. The service-oriented team at Imaging Central also embraces a patient-focused care philosophy that respects their time and makes them feel welcome.

Rehabilitation following an injury, illness, or surgery commonly involves some combination of physical, occupational, and speech therapy to overcome multiple functional deficits.
