When you visit our center, you’ll know immediately that you are in
good hands. In addition to our leading-edge equipment and technologies
optimized for accurate results, our center is designed to emulate a spa-like
atmosphere where patients enjoy a women’s only lounge accompanied
by soft music and the sounds of water flowing gently in a fountain.
You deserve to feel relaxed and cared for—and that’s our goal.
With four mammography rooms, three ultrasound suites, a specific room
dedicated to computer-aided biopsies and private changing rooms equipped
with personal lockers, we’ve thought of everything you need to feel
as comfortable as possible during your time with us.
The physician who referred you to our center will be able to access your
results online at a secure location at any time. Our staff partners with
your doctor, maintaining high standards of communication to ensure a thorough
continuum of care.
When Will I Get My Results Back?
If you are visiting our center for a follow-up test such as an ultrasound
or biopsy, you will meet with a radiologist from our team immediately
after undergoing the test to discuss your results. We’ll answer
your questions and discuss the next steps if necessary. In cases where
cancer is diagnosed, our panel of experts meets together to discuss each
individual case, reviewing the patient’s condition from every perspective
to identify optimal care paths and recommendations.
