The purpose of a mammogram is to diagnose breast cancer. Our goal is to detect it at its earliest possible stage to provide the best possible outcomes. We recommend women begin having screening mammograms after the age of 40, but your primary care physician can help you determine when to begin scheduling mammograms.
In this video, we provide tips to make your mammogram go as smoothly as possible. We also explain what to expect during the appointment.
