WHAT SETS US APART
We are passionate about what we do.  We have been servicing San Diego's physicians since 1997 and are located in a charming, 100 year old craftsman home to provide a comfortable and unique experience for all our clients.  We were one of the first in San Diego to offer 4D imaging, starting in 2000 as XDI Ultrasound. Our sonographers are registered (RDMS) or registry eligible by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS), NTQR Certified, have a combined experience of over 40,000 ultrasounds and over 25 years experience.

 We loved, loved, loved our experience here.  The place is gorgeous, the one on one attention was awesome.  We got the video and it was so fun to watch at home and really look at our sweet tiny one.  This place is a treasure and worth every penny if your insurance doesn't cover it. It's a wonderful experience.

This place was amazing! Everyone there was extremely kind and they really took their time with the ultrasound... Didn't feel rushed whatsoever!!!  This is the coolest place...wish we had gone through them instead of our doctor with our first born!

As good as it gets when it comes to ultrasounds!  Sergio is an amazing sonographer, and was so great about answering all the (many) questions my husband and I had.  He was also very good at preempting questions by just telling us everything as he did it!  Our baby is measuring right on target & is absolutely perfect, and I cannot thank him enough for the ultrasound that helped ease our minds! We will be back in a month or two to do a gender scan, and can't wait to find out whether we'll be having a boy or girl later this year! This place is great! It's also quite beautiful & relaxing!

I came to have an ultrasound done for a non-pregnancy related issue.  Sergio and his receptionist were super friendly and professional.  While there, Sergio offered to do a scan of my baby.  We got to see our baby on the big flat screen and he got several different shots of baby and even gave me a projected due date which was right on the nose.  Prior to this, we had botched ultrasounds at the doctor's office that lasted just a minute or so with no time spent on explaining what of our baby we were looking at.  This was such a treat and bonus towards the end of my pregnancy.  What was an ordinary ultrasound kinda day turned out to be a great day!  We walked out with great 4D images of our little one! Highly recommended!

This place was amazing! I am so glad we decided to go here...we chose it based on the great reviews and the reviews were spot on.  We had an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend it to all of my pregnant friends.  The photos turned out great and he even gave us a cute little DVD video that was so neat to watch.  He made us feel super comfortable and we loved our whole experience with him.
