Thank you for
considering Pacific Coast
for all your ultrasound needs. These highly qualified professionals are
pleased to provide compassionate care, expert diagnostics, peace of
mind, and a miracle experience:
My name is Darlene Ginnett. I have been an ARDMS
for 13 years. I am fortunate to have received my ultrasound education
at one of the few accredited ultrasound programs in southern California
after receiving my college degree in radiology sciences. I am proud to
hold specialty certifications in GYN/OB, Abdomen and Small Parts. I
have worked with some of finest radiologists, obstetricians and
surgeons at high volume medical and imaging centers. I had the
opportunity to educate and supervise student interns as Clinical
Coordinator of a local ultrasound college. My interest in 3D technology
began while training as sales consultant and application specialist for
Image Quest Ultrasound, but my passion has always been performing OB
ultrasounds. I am fulfilled and rewarded when I can spend quality time
with expecting families, showing and telling the miracle of their
baby’s development. We utilize the highest 4D imaging
from GE Medical Systems. To be able to provide this in our beautiful
comfortable theatre complete with surround sound and 100”
is an honor for me. The final important qualification I can
assure you of is our full medical compliance. Every study
performed whether diagnostic or elective is reviewed by our board
certified radiologists and a report is sent to your doctor.
will make choices and decisions for many years for you and your child.
Expect the best from the start.
