She had a vision for MCI Diagnostic Center, but she had no idea that in her lifetime the world would be facing a pandemic that would kill millions worldwide.

When the nuclear medicine technologist opened MCI, she wanted citizens to be able to come to a “sterile, inviting, efficient and secure” facility that services clients of all ages.

In addition to training church parishioners so that they could begin testing the millions in the D/FW metroplex who needed to be tested, the center has performed numerous tests and vaccines since moving from Oklahoma.

Payne-Nabors said many of those tests and vaccines have been on school-age children.


According to staff, experienced an increase in youth who came to MCI, which is one of the few Black-owned testing centers of its magnitude in the Country.

Part of the increase could be attributed to the community outreach of Payne-Nabors and team; participating with area churches, schools and programs, to educate citizens about their services, as well as the importance of taking precautions to avoid infections.

Located at 1155 Kas Drive, Suite 180 in Richardson TX 75081, MCI has the capacity to process thousands of tests per day which Payne-Nabors says helped to save lives.

To register to secure a test, log on to Walkups are also welcomed.
