Thank you so much to all staff in the Diagnostic Center. I really appreciated the great care you rendered to me. Blessingxs are sent your way.
5+ year patient:
I had a mammogram on April 6th. FINDINGS: Breasts are dense...No suspicious nodules, microcalcifications, or areas of architectural distortion. NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE.
RECOMMENDATION: Follow-up Mamogram in one year.

Right after I felt a lump and thought it was swelling from mammogram. Primary Doctor said it could be caused by caffeine. Called back again to get follow up mammogram scheduled because lump was still hanging around. I had that completed on June 1st and they added ultrasound. That is when I was told there was a "GOLF BALL SIZED LUMP IN MY BREAST". A "Golf Ball" that I felt right after mammogram that they not only missed, but said my results were NORMAL and I could come back in a year.

I have now had 8 biopsies out of my breast and DO have breast cancer. Specifically an "An aggressive type of cancer that does respond well to treatment."

If I had followed the professional medical advice from your doctors and specialist, I would have wrote that swelling off as nothing to be concerned about and the "AGRESSIVE CANCER" in my body would have been left un treated for another year.

If you have a patient with DENSE BREAST, do an ultrasound!
What I think is even worse in my case, as if that is possible, is the fact that the ultrasound technician didn't bother to check my other breast with the ultrasound. If BOTH have dense tissue and you find a "GOLF BALL" in one breast, how about taking the time while you have access to both and the machine right there to check BOTH breasts? I mean, does that common sense decision require and advanced medical degree? The look of shock and baffled responses I have received from the cancer specialist and nurses where I got MRI, lead me to believe that no advance degree or training should have been required to make that decision.

As a long time patient both of the diagnostic center and primary care physicians, I would like to know how you are going to DO BETTER FOR WOMEN. What steps are you going to take to prevent anyone else from finding themselves in the position that I am in now...or worse.

The response to this will determine if I will be able to rebuild my confidence in the quality of care I can expect to receive going forward and continue to seek treatment here.

Very professional, friendly and pleasant
I went to the Brookwod Medical Baptist ER on Hwy 119 in Shelby County several weeks ago after being referred by MedHelp on Hwy 280 for an emergency MRI for suspected meningitis. While at the ER they put me on an automated machine to take my blood pressure, THEY ACCIDENTALY PUT IT IN AN AUTOMATED TOURNIQUET MODE AND PAINFULL SQUEEZED MY ARM FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME even as I complained several times about the pain. Now I am receiving a large bill because the Doctor is too lazy or ignorant to code the vist where it will be covered by BC/BS Insurance. The time spent on the phone trying to get this coded correctly and covered as it should be is ridiculous. Very frustrated and do NOT recommend using Brookwod Baptist ER on Hwy 119 in Shelby County.

Addressing Breast Density does not have to be complex. 3D mammography is a great option for dense breasts. Today, 40 to 50 percent of women aged 40 to 74 have dense breast tissue. A mammogram screening is the best way to find out if you have dense breasts. 3-D mammography technology is available at Women's Diagnostic Center and Brookwood Diagnostic Center - Hwy 119!

Did you know (per the American Cancer Society):

* The breast cancer death rate is 40% higher in Black women versus White women?
* YOUNGER BLACK WOMEN - those 40 and under - are more likely to get a breast cancer diagnosis versus White Women?
* Early detection of breast cancer results in an almost 100% 5-year survival rate?

Women's Diagnostic Center is excited to work with Black Women's Health Imperative and Hologic 3D Genius to educate our Birmingham Communities on the importance of mammogram screenings. This year in 2021, our goal is to provide more education and resources to women of color in the community to assist with decreasing breast cancer screening disparities for Black women.

Check out Mary J. the spokes person for the new POWER OF SURE initiative! Contact Women's Diagnostic Center at 205-802-6900 for more information on the POWER OF SURE initiative or to schedule your 3D Genius Mammogram appointment!!
