Zwanger-Pesiri’s New Elmhurst Practice Is Third Queens Facility To Open In The Past 12 Months
BY MICHAEL JOHNSON
In a sign of the continuing economic boom around the borough, Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology debuted its third new facility in Queens in the past year, opening the doors to its state-of-the-art Elmhurst office this week.
The Long Island-based private radiology practice opened an office in Laurelton and Ozone Park in the past 12 months, and it also has 23 offices on Long Island and one in Cobble Hill in Brooklyn.
“In the past 12 months, we have been able to open three state-of-the-art offices in Queens. The residents here deserve high-quality care and we are dedicated to providing them with that care,” said Dr. Steven L. Mendelsohn, the chief executive officer of Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology. “We are constantly striving to make the best imaging easily accessible, and our Elmhurst office will enable us to serve another new community.”
Last month, state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli’s economic snapshot of Queens noted that nearly 30,000 healthcare jobs have been added in the borough since 2009. In total, more than 105,000 people work in the healthcare industry in Queens, many of them at facilities like Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology’s practices.
The Elmhurst office is equipped with the newest MRI machines available, the Vida 3T. Patients can experience open-sided MRIs, and also receive Nuclear Medicine, Low-Dose CT scans, Ultrasounds, X-rays, 3D Mammograms and Bone Density scans. Zwanger-Pesiri offices specialize in a variety of radiology practices including musculoskeletal imaging, neurologic imaging, oncologic imaging and vascular imaging.
Across all of its facilities, Zwanger-Pesiri employs more than 65 radiologists who focus specifically on their field of expertise. Dr. Mendelsohn said that this approach leads to more accurate results for patients.
The newest facility is located at 88-12 Queens Blvd., which is directly across from the Queens Place shopping plaza, and only about 1,000 feet from the Woodhaven Boulevard subway stop for the E, M and R trains.
