Mink Radiology is a unique, specialized radiology practice based in Beverly Hills. The entire practice is designed to ensure that each patient receives the highest quality of care in a warm and comfortable setting. Unlike the large institutions, such as university-type hospitals, where many patients never interact with the radiologist, we believe in providing highly personalized and individualized care for our patients.
Jerrold Mink, M.D., had practiced Neuroskeletal radiology at both UCLA and Cedars Sinai since 1975 and had become disappointed with the impersonal “system.” He recognized the need for a different paradigm. He brought together a group of physicians who shared the desire to practice medicine at the exceptional professional level to which they had become accustomed, and to interact with patients and referring physicians on a personal level.
Dedication to Personalized Patient Care
Our physicians are committed to applying their academic skills to this unique, highly personalized and individualized practice of radiology. Each referring physician request is previewed prior to the imaging procedure so the examination is tailored to yield maximum information in the shortest time possible. Our radiologists closely monitor the progress of every examination to ensure that the examination is targeted to the specific clinical problem. Reports are typically typed and faxed within 3 hours of completion, although “STAT” cases are called to referring physicians at the conclusion of the examination.
Commitment to the Highest Standard of Patient Safety
Mink Radiology offers three outpatient imaging centers in the Los Angeles area. All of our facilities are accreditted by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR is a national organization devoted to making imaging safe, effective and accessible to those who need it. Accreditation is awarded following an in-depth review of facilities, equipment and staff qualifications by an ACR panel consisting of board certified physicians and medical physicists.
Diagnostic Excellence By Highly Skilled Experts
Each of our physicians are board certified by the American Board of Radiology. All of our physicians have a substantial academic background and have taught at the university level. They are active professionals who have published extensively in the medical literature and have lectured to medical professionals. One of the physicians has written five major texts in radiology.
Immediate Physician Access to Images and Reports Via the Internet
Mink Radiology utilizes an advanced picture archiving communication system (Kodak Carestream PACS) that allows our physicians to review patient diagnostic images and reports over the internet at anytime. Referring physicians can also view their patient's studies using the same system used by our radiologists. This allows for greater collaboration between physicians and radiologists, thus, resulting in better patient care.
Acceptance of a Wide Range of Insurance Carriers
We work with virtually every national and local insurance carriers. A list of common carriers we work with can be found on our Patient Services page.
