Physician offices may schedule screening and diagnostic mammogram appointments by calling our centralized scheduling service at 330-344-5760, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m. - noon. We offer digital mammography at each of our six Reflections Breast Health Center screening locations in Akron, Fairlawn, Green, Lodi, Stow and Tallmadge.
Diagnostic Mammograms & Imaging
Should a diagnostic mammogram or breast ultrasound be required, patients will be scheduled at our downtown Akron General location in the Ambulatory Care Center building. Parking is available in the deck adjacent to the Ambulatory Care Center.
Diagnostic mammogram images are read during the appointment by a board certified radiologist. Should more information be required, we can obtain additional imaging at that time to determine the nature of breast abnormalities. When further testing is required, such as a biopsy, needle aspiration or surgical exam, we can often schedule the patient the same day or next day. Patients seem to be pleased with this offering and we understand that any amount of time to wait on an answer when there’s a possibility of breast cancer, is too long.
Evaluations with our breast surgery team are offered at our downtown Akron Breast Health Center. Patients, as they are scheduled, will be paired up with one of our Breast Health Navigators who offer education, support and care coordination.
Our goal is to provide efficient and high-quality breast care and education in partnership with our patients physicians. If your office has a special request or would like to talk to any of our staff, including co-director Dr. Jennifer Davis, or co-director Dr. Andrew Fenton, please call us at 330-344-BRST (2778).
High Risk Clinic
We offer a high-risk clinic for first-degree family members of breast cancer patients. The service includes a review of family history and additional testing through local genetics experts. This service is not typically covered by health insurance plans, but we are happy to provide your patients and office staff with information about our fees.
Un- or Under-Insured Women
If your patients are un- or under-insured, they may qualify for a free screening mammogram through Akron General’s award-winning Muffins for Mammograms program. Patients must have a primary care physician and call 330-344-BRST (2778) to register.
We are happy to provide breast health materials to local physician offices. Request a supply of these materials for your office by emailing us at Lisa.Pudoka@akrongeneral.org.
