AMI Spotlight: Radiologist Assistants Brick Women's Center

The AMI Spotlight is on the Radiology Assistants (RA) at the Brick Women's Imaging Center. The RA’s role is to ensure that patients have a positive experience with AMI before, during and after their exam.  Prior to the patient’s arrival, the RA will ensure all previous films are received and loaded into our system.  For certain exams, the RA will also verify insurance coverage.  Once the patient arrives at our office, the RA will take the patient’s medical history and ensure all forms are completed.  The RA also supports the Radiologist during the daily review of the patient images which helps the Radiologist dictate each case in a timely and efficient manner. If for some reason, a patient needs to come back for additional images, the RA will call the patient and schedule the appointment.

Toni Ann (right) is an RA at the Brick Women’s Imaging Center.  She has been with AMI four years.  Making sure patients have a positive experience is the most rewarding aspect of being an RA for Toni Ann. Toni Ann says, “The sense of family among the AMI employees not only helps ensure patients are comfortable and satisfied, but also makes the office a supportive work environment.”

In addition to her duties as an RA, Toni Ann is also AMI's Wellness Coordinator. She provides tips and knowledge to assist employees in meeting their fitness and nutrition goals. Toni Ann also develops wellness challenges throughout the year for the employees. Recently, over 40 employees participated in the 2nd Annual Employee Weight Loss Challenge. The employees that participated lost a total of 175 pounds!.  The next challenge is the 100 miles in 100 days challenge.  The goal of this program is to get employees up and moving, especially now that the weather is getting a little cooler.  As a personal trainer, Toni Ann enjoys helping people make healthy choices, which can lead to a happier life.

Toni Ann leads a very active lifestyle and spends her free time doing a number of outdoor activities including hiking and paddle boarding.  She also has two Great Dane rescues, Diesel and Lady Murphy.
