Trust the reviews! When I first saw ALL 5 star I was like there's no way. After visiting I feel like there's no way you could have anything BUT 5 stars. Amazing experience, thanks so much!!

My orthopedic sent me to Northeast GA med center for an MRI and I was quoted $2,800 and some change WITH insurance. All said and done I was in the building for 45 minutes. The hospital wanted me to be there 45 minutes early just for paperwork… I will recommend First Look MRI to anyone and everyone I meet who needs an MRI. Way cheaper, way faster, and way more professional than any medical center.

Top notch. That's all there is to it. Don't waste your time looking anywhere else. When your doctor takes their kids there instead of the hospital they are affiliated with... that should tell you all you need to know.

Why can't all our healthcare be like this? Honest, open pricing, excellent service, and fast results from an exceptionally qualified radiologist. Empowered consumers in an open market. Makes sense to me.

The easiest and fastest way to get an MRI

Without the frustration and delays of using insurance

Do you have joint pain, back pain, headaches, or just worried about your health? In order to get answers, you need an MRI scan. The problem is that MRIs are too expensive and you need permission from your doctor and insurance company which makes you feel trapped. We believe that you should be able to find answers about your health quickly and easily, without breaking the bank. That's why we offer MRI exams for one low transparent price and no doctor order is required. Here's how it works:

5 minutes
No doctor’s order needed


Come to the appointment

20-30 minutes for a scan
No insurance accepted


Receive your results by email

In under 24 hours
STAT in under 90 minutes

Feel frustrated and marginalized?

Take charge of your health

Want answers today without having to ask for permission from your insurance company or doctor? At First Look MRI, no order is required and the results are sent directly to you, the paying customer, and to the doctor you specify. At other facilities in Atlanta, an MRI plus an additional reading fee can cost thousands of dollars and it may take several weeks to get see your doctor, get the order, have the scan, and visit your doctor again to learn the results. At First Look MRI, you can schedule an exam yourself online and get answers the same day, saving time and money. For lightning-fast service, STAT results are sent to you in under 90 minutes.

Confused by the report?

Add a video to explain the findings.

- Exclusively at First Look MRI -

A video report created by the radiologist will show any abnormal findings and discuss the clinical implications and severity of your condition.

Now you can understand the problem from an unbiased MRI specialist's perspective and not have to wait for your doctor to explain the results.

Start with the MRI

When you need answers, schedule your exam easily by phone or online and have answers the same day. If the MRI is abnormal, you can see your doctor with the results in hand, not wasting time and money on an initial office visit. Finding answers at First Look MRI is easy and stress free with no order required, transparent pricing, and no hidden fees.

Superior service for less money

Healthcare simplified

A well-deserved A+ goes out to the Brookhaven First Look MRI! This is a first class business. From my first phone call to walking in the door and walking out was truly refreshing. Where else would you get this? A reasonable cost full of value, even to the point that you will receive a video of your MRI explained in laymen terms by A DOCTOR! Highly recommend these folk.

Seriously the best experience you could ask for when having an MRI. The waiting room looks like a hotel lobby, the staff is super friendly, there was no wait, and my MRI with a personal video review by the doctor was waiting for me in my email by the time I got home.

Why are our MRI scans so cheap?

Good question! The reason we are able to provide high-quality MRI scans in Atlanta, Dallas, and Denver for a fraction of the price that large hospitals or healthcare providers charge is because we cut out not only the middleman (insurance companies), but also the high overhead that comes with running a large operation.

Since we don’t bill insurance and do only MRI scans, our process is streamlined, requiring less staff and infrastructure. Plus, we are privately owned by Dr. Gay, so we don’t need high profits to satisfy investors or to help pay for expensive hospital operations, so we pass the savings on to you.

With high field MRI scaners in Alpharetta, GA, Brookhaven, GA, Plano, TX and Centennial, CO, and a true open MRI in Braselton, GA to serve you, we are committed to provide the very best user experience in the world, in a relaxing, comfortable environment.
