X-Rays Q & A
What are digital X-rays?
An X-ray is a common form of medical imaging that produce images of your bones. Dr. Johnson and Dr. Ahwah use digital X-rays to assess injuries including bone breaks and fractures and as a diagnostic tool for sports-related injuries.
Digital X-rays might also be useful in monitoring chronic health conditions, like arthritis, and diagnosing the cause of abdominal pain.
At New MD & Urgent Care, digital X-rays are available on-site to provide you and your doctor with fast and accurate test results. You won’t have to visit a hospital or other medical facility for your X-ray testing, so your treatment can start sooner.
What are the benefits of digital X-rays?
When comparing digital X-rays to traditional film X-rays, the digital version might be a safer option, as they use less radiation. Digital X-rays are also more comfortable than other imaging technologies. You can often sit upright during your X-ray.
Using advanced digital technology, Dr. Johnson and Dr. Ahwah can take precise images of specific areas, ensuring you get a highly detailed picture of the treatment area without having to take multiple X-rays. This type of testing is more accurate and of a much higher quality than traditional film X-rays.
Digital X-rays also make it easier for your doctor to update your medical file and send X-ray images to your specialist or primary-care physician.
What can I expect during a digital X-ray procedure?
Digital X-rays are painless and only take a few minutes, depending on the treatment area. You can relax in a comfortable exam room while the X-ray technician sets up the equipment around you.
During the X-rays, you must remain as still as possible to get an accurate result. You might need to reposition your body several times during the test, based on the reason for your X-ray.
Once the imaging test is over, your New MD doctor reviews the results to give you a proper diagnosis before your appointment ends. Dr. Johnson and Dr. Ahwah create a customized treatment plan to address your injury or condition, or they can refer you to a specialist for further treatment.

WHAT WE OFFER
Services We Provide
Great Doctor & Staff Very efficent and caring
Except for being 35 minutes late opening, the experience was good.
Dr Ahwah was very good! He listened to me and checked me thoroughly. I highly recommend him. I’m not sure though if he has other regular office other than Urgent Care, otherwise, I will have him as my PCP.
Very quick! I showed up as a walk-in patient right when the Clinic opened. Spent maybe 15 minutes filling paperwork and dealing with insurance. Saw the doctor almost immediately, took him 5 seconds to determine my ailment, sent me off with 3 prescriptions. A couple days later I’m as good as new!
Quick and efficient! Glad to know this option of a quick visit is so close to home and open on weekends
I was treated promptly and keep kindly, when I came in after a bicycling accident. The medication that was prescribed is working. The glued wound continued to bleed at home, so I had to apply a large adhesive strip to stop bleeding on my clothing. I’m trending better. Thanks for your care.
Very helpful staff in & out quickly . Highly recommend for urgent care .
I was already at Concentra and the customer service was so bad I left and drove to NewMD in El Cerrito. I was done before Concentra called me to set up my information for my visit. The staff at NewMD was absolutely wonderful.
The doctor and whole team was awesome. My first time there and my first time to an urgent care facility. Good to know there is a convenient place in my neighborhood that I can get in and out quickly. A quick diagnosis, vitals, medical notes/info, and a prescription …and a CVS in the same mall for the pharmacy!
The staff and doctor were all quite courteous and welcoming. I got a lot of information about my condition from the doctor, who was very thorough and had an excellent “bedside manner.”
visit to your medical service was timely & well done
Dr. Ian Ahwah was great! He knew exactly what was going on with my severe sore throat and prescribed me some meds that took care of the condition. Thank you Dr. Ahwah!
