RocDoc offers x-ray services 7 days a week between 12:00 to 18:00.

In addition to our normal walk in consultations, RocDoc is pleased to be able to offer our patients a full private x-ray service.  This facility is by referral only and this can be either by your own GP or following a consultation with one of our Doctors here at RocDoc.  We do not have an age restriction for an x-ray to be undertaken.

Should you require x-ray then RocDoc will aim to see you at the earliest convenient appointment.  As an x-ray is a standard procedure then in most cases there are no special preparations needed.  Patients may be required to remove any metal objects or clothes (a gown will be provided if required) that could interfere with the x-ray imaging.  During the x-ray being taken the patient may be asked to lie on an examination table or stand up in a specific location.  The room may be cool but this is in order to keep the equipment at the right temperature for its optimum performance level.

Patients should always informed their Doctor and also the Radiographer (the person who takes the x-ray) if they have any metal implants from previous surgeries, women should also advise if there is any possibility of them being pregnant.  The Radiographer may use pillows or sandbags to help the patient to hold the correct position.  The patient will be asked to stay very still, without breathing for a few seconds in order for the x-ray to be taken.  When the x-ray is going to be taken the Radiographer will go behind a walled area with a window but they can still see and talk to you.  If anyone else is in the room (for children being x-rayed for example) then they will have to either go outside the room or join the Radiographer at this time.  Often multiple images or views are taken from different angles so the patient may be asked to reposition and the process repeated again.

Once the x-ray has been taken then it will be sent to one of our Radiologists Consultants who will analysis it and issue a report directly to the referring doctor.  Patients may need to make a subsequent appointment to discuss the results with their referring Doctor if not a RocDoc Doctor.

In general, an x-ray procedure should only take a few moments, but we would request that patients give themselves enough time for their appointment.  The patient will not feel the x-ray being taken.

The x-ray service at RocDoc is a private facility and is therefore not available under any of the HSE schemes.  In some cases for patients that have health insurance it may cover some of the costs, however this varies by provider and type so we advise to contact your insurer to check this.

If you have not been referred internally after a consultation with one of our RocDoc Doctors then a full comprehensive x-ray referral form must be bought to the appointment which has been completed by a registered Doctor.  You will be asked for this at the time of booking the appointment and if not the same day appointment then you must either email it into us at admin@rocdoc.ie or drop it into our reception prior to the appointment day.

  • I emailed RocDoc about their procedures around testing young children, and Sarah was prompt, helpful and incredibly kind. I feel at ease, and more comfortable about arriving for testing in a few weeks. So grateful.

  • I would like to congratulate RocDoc on having an incredible girl called Anna working on their customer service line, both on-line, live chat and at the end of the phone. Yesterday I tried to organise a group booking for myself and the family, it was a little complicated to complete on line!
    Thank God for Anna! Anna was on duty on the live chat line and was absolutely excellent. She guided me through the whole process, she was so patient, polite, friendly and helpful, an absolute credit to you. Today I called to check the details were all correct and she had the loveliest telephone manner, she remembered me from yesterday (not surprising as I took up at least an hour of her time!), she immediately resolved an error I had made, and completely reassured me that everything was in order. Her manner was so lovely, I felt I was chatting with someone I knew, she was calm, confident, polite and so friendly. This is not the type of service you normally receive from live chats or customer call lines, it was exceptional! I hope you appreciate what a great asset you have in your team! Well done Anna!

  • I only dealt with customer service this far - a lady called Carly was super helpful. From a customer service perspective, I have nothing to complain about. Thanks again Carly!

  • Reliable, professional service. They have squeezed myself and my partner in on short notice with emergencies in the past and have now become our regular attending GP.
    Fantastic parking facilities out front. Receptionists are friendly and welcoming. The doctors are amazing and very happy to answer any questions. My partner will not see anyone else (just kidding) any other doctor we have been seen by is attentive and polite.
    Only thing is email response time recently can be a bit slow/non-existent but understandable due to the nature of the job and current ongoing pandemic (normally was immediate and all emails answered so did not deduct a star).

  • My little girl had a fall tonight and badly hurt her finger. I rushed to Rocdoc immediately with her and Dr Damien saw her straight away, was so gentle with her and cleaned her up before sending us home. I was so impressed and would highly recommend RocDoc. Thank you so much.
