“Pilgrims and citizens of Mashhad can enjoy the high quality services of Dar al-Shifa’s Imaging Unit with affordable prices. These services include routine and specialized radiography, mouth and jaw radiography (OPG) and digital mammography and ultrasonography,” added Dr. Sargolzaei.
Director of Astan Quds Razavi’s medical institute went on to say that clients of this center’s general practitioners, orthopedists and urologists and clients of its gynecology clinic and dentistry polyclinic as well as patients of other medical centers all can enjoy the services of this center.
Sargolzaei also pointed to the employment of around 20 staff members including radiologists in the center’s imaging unit and said “the issue of lack of female radiologists, which exists in other clinics around the city, has largely been fixed in this Dar al-Shifa.”
“Pregnancy ultrasonography, color ultrasonography and fetal screening are some of the services offered in this center,” continued Sargolzaei, stressing that ultrasonography tests for pregnant women are conducted by female doctors in the center’s morning shift.
“In addition to having various medical units, Imam Reza Dar al-Shifa is the closest medical center to the holy shrine of Imam Reza,” highlighted Sargolzaei, stating that the number of the clients of the center’s imaging unit rises from mid-July to August, due to the spike in the number of pilgrims in this period.
He added that the imaging (Radiology and Ultrasound) unit of Imam Reza Dar al-Shifa runs every day even on Fridays and other official holidays from 7 AM to 7 PM on the floor -1 of the center. Sargolzaei also said that on special occasions, when there is a surge in the number pilgrims, the medical complex is open for 24 hours.
It is worth mentioning that Imam Reza Dar al-Shifa, which is affiliated to the Astan Quds Razavi Medical Institute, has a wide range of medical facilities and equipment and hosts specialized, committed and efficient staff in different sections, who offer services to the pilgrims and citizens throughout the year. This center is located nearby the Sheikh Tousi gate of the holy shrine of Imam Reza.
