Same Day Mammogram Results Help Ease Women’s Worries
web posted October 17, 2012
AUGUSTA – Mammograms continue to be the
most effective method for detecting breast cancer in women.
Doctors Hospital has recently implemented measures to inform women
about mammogram results within 24 hours of the screening. The results
have been resoundingly positive; in most cases patients can put their
minds at ease by receiving a favorable result faster.
“As a woman I understand the importance of knowing my results from an
exam such as a mammogram as quickly as possible,” said Sue Sisco,
Manager of the Women’s Diagnostics Center at Doctors Hospital.
“These same day results were recently implemented in an effort to
provide our patients with fewer worries for a shorter period of time.
They know when they leave our facility that they’ll be hearing from us
Should any abnormal results come back from the mammogram; same day
results provide the staff at the Women’s Diagnostics Center, the
opportunity to discuss with the patient the next steps in their care
quickly. This efficient turnaround of information reduces
concerns that they may have because the ball gets rolling for treatment
“I went in for my mammogram in the morning, and by that afternoon at 2
pm, I already knew my results,” said Charlotte Hill, a patient who
received her mammogram at Doctors Hospital.
Previously, results would be given to patients through the mail within
one week of the screening.
To schedule your mammogram, call: (877) 357-0159. Appointments
are from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday with the exception of
Tuesday. Mammograms can be scheduled as late as 6:00 pm to
accommodate those with longer working hours.
