Since its formation in 2015, NJIN has grown into a leading provider of outpatient imaging in northern and central New Jersey, providing high-quality, lower cost and convenient services as an alternative to more expensive hospital-based imaging. Montclair Radiology’s long-standing brand has been a fixture in the markets it serves, and its high-quality reputation for delivering outstanding patient services is symbiotic with that of our existing NJIN operations.”
Dr. Michael Pollack, President of Montclair Radiology, shared, “The physicians and employees of Montclair Radiology are excited about this opportunity to affiliate with and become part of NJIN. Our medical group has gained the trust of patients and referring physicians in northern New Jersey by providing exceptional radiology services.
