Information for Providers

Screening Mammograms
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 are 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.

Surgical Evaluations
Evaluations with our breast surgery team are offered at our downtown Akron Reflections Breast Health Center. Patients, as they are scheduled, will be paired up with our Breast Health Care Coordinator who offers 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, 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. Learn more about our High-Risk Clinic.

Uninsured- or Under-Insured Women
If your patients are uninsured - or under-insured, they may qualify for a free screening mammogram through Akron General’s Muffins for Mammograms program. Patients must have a primary care physician and can call 330-344-BRST (2778) to register.
