Annual screening mammography does not require a prescription or referral from your doctor or health care provider. You must have the name of your referring doctor so we may send them the results of your screening.
Diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, and breast MRI require a prescription from your doctor, nurse practitioner or medical provider. For you convenience, we accepts most insurance plans.
We have made several of our forms available for patients to download. Filling these out in advance of your first visit with a surgeon or the Breast Center will allow you to complete them at your convenience and bring them to the office on the day of your visit.
If you are new to either of our practices or haven’t had an office visit in greater than 6 months, we encourage you to download, print, and fill out the patient forms. We request that returning patients’ complete new medical history forms every 6 months to keep our records current. Upon arrival, please be prepared to review one additional form that is pertinent to the day of your appointment and update your contact information.
Please don’t forget your insurance card, driver’s license and referral with you to your appointment. If you have any questions about which form to fill out please call our office. Thank you. If you’re unable to open these files, you may need to download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader program.
