AMI Spotlight: Front Desk Staff, Mays Landing Office


Some of the first faces you will see when you walk into the AMI Mays Landing office are those of our front desk staff.  Being greeted with a friendly smile is simple, yet vitally important.  We want to ensure that our patients have the best possible experience, from the time they walk through our doors until they leave the office after their exam.   

The front desk staff is responsible for registering patients, answering questions and being great support to our patients.  Their main goal is to accommodate the needs of our patients in a prompt, professional manner.

In 2014, the Mays Landing office won the annual AMI Customer Service Excellence Award.  This award is given to the office that received the highest overall satisfaction rating from our patients. Kudos to the Mays Landing staff!



If you have been to our Mays Landing office, you may have met Binny, Jeanne, and Lee Ann. Lee Ann is the lead receptionist at this office.  She oversees the front desk staff and enjoys helping her fellow staff members create the best experience for our patients.

AMI Spotlight: Radiologic Technologists, Mays Landing Office



In this feature, the spotlight is on the Radiologic Technologists at the AMI Mays Landing office.  The technologists will ensure you have the best imaging experience possible.

Do you ever notice the R.T., MR, CT, or M, on the technologist uniforms?  These credentials designate that a technologist is certified in radiology (R.T.) and an area(s) of specialty.  All of our technologists have completed their training at an accredited Radiologic Technologist program and are licensed through the State of New Jersey.  An associate's degree is the most common educational path for radiologic technologists.  Most technologists start out as radiologic technologists and then go on to specialize in areas such as mammography, MRI, CT, sonography or nuclear medicine.

To stay up to date with the latest advances in radiology, our technologists complete mandatory continuing education requirements, as well as learning from daily interactions with our radiologists. No matter what the specialty area, all technologists are committed to providing you the highest level of imaging combined with unsurpassed patient care.
