    What is a screening mammogram?

    A screening mammogram is a low dose x-ray of the breast. A mammogram consists of two images of each breast. The images are used to detect changes in the breasts of women who have no signs or symptoms suspicious for breast cancer. An annual screening mammogram is recommended for all women over the age of 40.

    What sets your office apart from most other health clinics that treat patients with pain or symptoms due to many different types of spinal disorders?

    What sets us apart in most cases is that at our facility we first take a complete history, and we listen to the patients needs to understand what they are trying to accomplish. After a thorough evaluation, and review of a patient's diagnostics tests, we make sure that the patient understands their problem by first going over in detail what their tests reveal before any treatment is prescribed. Also, we make sure we diagnose each patient properly so they may be put on the proper treatment. I think most people would be amazed on the amount of patients we have, that have been to many other doctors, have had a myriad of tests, were never even told what their test revealed, and have never been put on the proper treatment. A lot of our patients have been going around in circles from doctor to doctor looking for answers and in many cases there may be a simple solution to their problem.
