About our project

The problem we solve: The east side of San Antonio,Tx has a growing geriatric community, as well as pediatrics, low income individuals, people with limited health coverage, as well as poor to no transportation. Best Tech Imaging will be the first standalone X-ray and Ultrasound clinic on this side of town. This will allow the patients of this community to take advantage of advanced imaging without having to commute numerous miles, for basic procedures. For the duration of my 34 years in this city, this problem has never been addressed.

About our solution: I will incorporate digital x-ray and ultrasound units, with rapid turnaround, and prompt interpretations from our teleradiology partners. Patients will be able to walk in with either a hand carried order, or a call from their providers, and receive excellent service, within their own neighborhood.

Progress to date:

Bio: This is Willie Griggs R.T.(R) A.R.R.T., founder of Best Tech Imaging PLLC. After 34 years of taking x-rays in the beautiful city of San Antonio, I discovered there was something missing: An imaging center on the Eastside! After careful market research and analysis, it turns out that all the major players in the city, in regards to diagnostic x-rays, ultrasounds, MRI, CT-scan, Bone Density (DEXA), Interventional, Nuclear Medicine, Mammography, etc. with a total of 40+ locations, have forgotten that side of town. I am committed, as a Military Veteran, ,to assist the underserved citizens of Bexar county, to receive the services they deserve, without the inconvenience of an extended commute. Our initial service offering will consist of x-ray and ultrasound services, with future services and locations throughout the Eastside, as we grow.

How We Help Patients

My marketer spoke to quite a few senior citizens on the eastside of San Antonio in regards to establishing a stand alone Medical Imaging Center. The responses were uniformly positive. The primary concern is that many seniors, and underprivileged individuals, lack the access to make it to get basic image exams. Some get frustrated, and skip their appointments, which further compromises their well being. With BTI in close proximity, there physical and emotional needs will be met.

Thank You

I didn't envision the historical significance of this project, until after I'd begun my initial research. The populace of the eastside of San Antonio is in dire need of this imaging center. It will provide access to convenient Radiology and Ultrasound services, and expedient interpretations to their providers. I have spent the bulk of my 34 years in the field, in this city, and I'm amazed that this issue wasn't addressed sooner. Now is the time to make a difference. With your help, the citizens of the eastside will finally have access to this initiative within the confines of their community. I am humbled to be able to provide this service, as well as supply higher paying jobs, to strengthen the economy.
