Since joining Olympia’s TRA Medical Imaging in 2014, Dr. Grant Tibbetts has pushed for more patient-centered care, starting with increased interaction between radiologists and patients.

As Medical Director, Dr. Tibbetts has also broadened the scope of what TRA offers locally and brought in new technology.  Tibbetts also was the driving force behind the Women’s Imaging Center located within the Lilly Road campus, which offers 3-D mammography. The center is designed with patients in mind, both in terms of scheduling and aesthetics.
