Shop Small Day 278: MCAI

I’m not certain if today’s business/service truly qualifies as a small business, but the experience definitely sets it apart from the rest. Ok, ladies. Today we’re talking about ta-tas. Particularly, getting yours checked. If you’ve been delaying your annual (or first) mammogram because you’re nervous…your anxiety will be calmed at Midwest Center for Imaging.

Apparaently they also do ultra-sounds and other imaging services, I’ve only been there for mammograms. Even though they are affiliated with Rush Copley hospital- there is nothing hospitalish or clinic-y abour MCAI.

Think spa.

Here’s the rundown. You give your name at the front desk. Then, the person checking you in escorts you to their desk where they verify name, insurance, etc. I was checked in by Liz who couldn’t have been friendlier- she even brought be a bottle of water.

After a brief check-in, and an enjoyable conversation, Liz walked me back to the next area where I was greated by my technician, Rhonda.

imageFrom there, Rhonda walked me into my changing room (told you! quite spa-like) and explained the procedure plus new technology changes from last year.

No paper gowns here- love the Made in USA comfy robes. Granted- they used have crazy plush awesome never want to take them off robes, but I’m guessing a few people may have walked off with those!

Start to finish, the whole process took about 30 minutes.

MCAI is clean, professional, and un-commonly cozy.

Like I said, not certain it qualifies as a small business, but too many of my friends hadn’t heard of it. And, since they dread their appointments, I thought more of you would appreciate the peace of mind MCAI brings to a necessary appointment.

Since we’re talking ta-ta’s- in case you missed Day 175- Tina’s can help out with custom bras.
