Makana North Shore Urgent Care offers an x-ray lab on site with immediate interpretation by physicians who then can diagnose and treat injuries and illnesses from broken bones to pneumonia.
Instead of going to an ER or waiting for a referral from your doctor to obtain an x-ray, our on-site medical specialist and certified x-ray-technician will perform the x-ray study for your convenience. This will allow us to rapidly diagnose your illness or injury during your visit to our clinic. In addition to musculoskeletal x-ray imaging, we also offer other digital x-rays to assist in diagnosing other illnesses and conditions including pneumonia.
The accuracy of our x-rays is important to us to best serve you and ensure proper diagnosis. In addition to being read by our on-site medical specialist, all of our digital x-rays are also interpreted by a board-certified radiologist who will provide a formal radiology report for you. At your request, we can also provide the digital images for your files or for you to take to your primary care physician. Everything is done in one visit, so you can save time and you can heal faster.
When you’re in need of lab testing, you want a medical office that offers convenient hours and fast results. At Makana North Shore Urgent Care, we offer in-house lab services for our patients. This reduces wait times for results and also reduces the fees associated with having to go to another location for such lab work.

Saving you money is important, which is why we keep physicals affordable.
