Q: Iâ€™m 45 year old female. Do I need to get a mammogram? Â
A: Yes, itâ€™s recommended for ages 40 through 69 every 12-24 months.
Q: Do I need to see my Primary Care Manager and get a referral? How do I schedule this appointment? Â
A: If youâ€™re a healthy person, call the appointment line at 653-2273 and ask them to instruct your PCM to order your screening exam. If you are at the hospital you may self-refer for a screening mammogram by stopping the Radiology Department. They ask specific questions to see if you meet the criteria. The Mammography technician will call you in 2-3 days to schedule your appointment. If you donâ€™t meet the criteria, youâ€™ll need to see your PCM first. If youâ€™re not sure about your health status, then schedule an appointment with your PCM by calling 653-2273.
