Medical experts across the country are urging women to schedule the mammograms they may have postponed for fear of contracting COVID-19.
“If a patient has a healthcare need unrelated to COVID-19, including mammography and other lifesaving testing procedures, they should not ignore it even during this pandemic,” suggests Dr. Lisa Sheppard. “Undetected cancer and untreated disease could potentially be more life-threatening than the risk of the coronavirus.”
PINK Breast Center has put into place new procedures for patients to ensure their health and safety. All patients will have their temperature checked, must be free of COVID-19 symptoms, and wear a face covering. PINK is practicing safety precautions following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting all patient care and treatment areas. Sanitation procedures include ultraviolet light disinfection.
