RBCC_AKThe team at St. Joe’s Regional Breast Care Center reminds you that mammography continues to be the most effective screening test for breast cancer.

Having your screening mammogram on a regular schedule allows early changes to be identified and early detection and treatment is key to survivor-ship.

The American Cancer Society continues to recommend annual mammograms starting at age 40.

Have a conversation with your provider to see if this schedule is right for you.

Our Regional Breast Care Center has convenient appointments starting at 7 a.m.- complete your screening mammogram quickly and still have time to pick up your coffee on your way to work! We now offer earlier bone density appointments, too.

Have your primary care provider send us the request and a scheduler will call to arrange the most convenient screening appointment time for you.

We may even be able to offer you a cancellation appointment the same day!

Contact us at 907-1841 with any questions.
