Neuroradiology specialist Dr. Andrew Kreek has been a part of the PrimeImaging team for more than a decade. “Most people don’t realize that when you come to us as a patient, your test is read or your procedure is performed by one of our radiologists who is highly specialized in the area of concern,” says Dr. Kreek. “This allows for a unique approach into a higher standard of care.” Delivering excellent radiological outcomes is a practice that Dr. Kreek prides himself in for patients who depend on his expertise to receive the care they need. “Relieving the anxiety for the patient is critical,” he says.

5. Why have you chosen this field of speciality?
My journey into the medical field was somewhat unorthodox. After spending some time in the private business sector, I considered some tough decisions. That meant a change in career path, where I found an opening to work in a local hospital. After being engrained within the healthcare setting and interacting with physicians, I determined my new direction into neuroradiology.
