Radiologists Dr. Raymond Welsh and Dr. Randall Raziano
Your mammogram is normal. Your chest x-ray looks good. Your MRI shows your condition has improved. One of the most critical elements in the successful treatment or prevention of any medical condition is a correct diagnosis. For many of the patients at Montrose Memorial that usually involves a visit to the Medical Imaging Department. Radiologists Dr. Randall Raziano and Dr. Raymond Welsh are the unsung and often unseen heroes who spend a lot of time alone, in a darkened room, carefully analyzing an immense array of images as they partner with local physicians to solve a myriad of medical mysteries.
It is rare for a rural hospital such as MMH to have two fellowship trained Radiologists. Dr. Raziano, who completed Medical School and Internship at Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans, followed by a Residency in Diagnostic Radiology and a Fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at Emory University in Atlanta, specializes in a variety of minimally invasive interventional procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of problems involving the arteries, lungs, liver and kidneys, among others.
Dr. Welsh, a graduate of The University of Southern Florida College of Medicine in Tampa, completed his Internship at Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, VA, his Residency at Emory University and a Fellowship in Musculoskeletal Radiology and MRI with California Advanced Imaging in San Francisco, CA. His expertise includes MRI, Musculoskeletal Radiology and Neuroradiology.
Their individual areas of focus compliment each other and together they offer patients a broad spectrum of knowledge and experience.
The two radiologists feel extremely fortunate to work with a cohesive and dynamic team of professionals that in Raziano’s words, “never settle for adequate” when excellence is needed for every single procedure. “The best surprise upon arriving at MMH and the best thing about my job is the unbelievable staff in Medical Imaging,” agreed Welsh. “They are experienced, well trained, have a good work ethic and are terrific to work with. They always want their work to be the best and it shows.” Both doctors feel that their jobs are made much easier by a staff with a great attitude that takes its job very seriously.
“Also essential to excellent diagnostic work is the state of the art technology and equipment that we have here for all imaging modalities,” Raziano said. “We have digital mammography, a new CT and MRI. Because of this, advanced medical imaging procedures can be done right here in Montrose."
Like Raziano, Welsh spent considerable time in big city hospitals where excellent medical care is available, but with some big differences in delivery. “In a large
metropolitan hospital the sheer volume of cases can make it more difficult for physicians and patients alike,” he said. "Here, our volume allows us to provide each patient with personalized care and the local physicians have a great, let's work together for the best of the patient attitude that you don't often find in a big city environment."
Patients who come to the Medical Imaging Department at MMH can be assured of the finest diagnostic testing available anywhere. The technology and state of the art equipment rivals that found in any big city hospital and the compassionate staff is highly trained and dedicated to their work.
And the radiologists? They are usually found at their computer screens in their darkened offices, often alone but always connected, to patients, physicians, research
facilities and medical schools, as they strive to make every diagnosis quickly and correctly to help save lives and provide invaluable information needed for treatment.
