Are there additional costs for 3D Mammography?
Medicare and many insurance companies are starting to pay for 3D mammography because they are recognizing its long-term cost savings. Because coverage for the 3D portion of the mammogram is sometimes not covered, we will collect a $70 fee upfront and then file a claim to your insurance company. We will refund you the entire $70 if the 3D portion is paid for by your insurance plan.
Why is an endometrial biopsy necessary?
If a woman is having difficulty getting pregnant, her physician may perform this procedure to see whether a women’s lining can support a pregnancy. The biopsy can also be performed if a woman is experiencing abnormal or heavy bleeding, to check for an overgrowth of the lining called endometrial hyperplasia, or to check for cancer.
I missed taking my birth control; what do I do?
There are several questions you need to answer if you missed taking The Pill. First, how many days did you miss? Second, is missing your birth control a regular occurrence? If you missed one or two days, your birth control instructions may tell you to double up for the day or two after. Second, did you have intercourse during the period you didn’t take your birth control? If you did, you may want to conduct a pregnancy test a few weeks after to see if you’re pregnant. We recommend using another form of non-hormonal birth control, such as condoms, until you are able to start your new pack. We also recommend going to your physician if you believe you might be pregnant; your physician can answer any questions you have and help you plan. If you have difficulty taking your birth control every day, your doctor can prescribe another contraceptive you can take less often.

I had my blood drawn recently. The lab tech was AMAZING! She kept me calm, distracted from the stick, and hit the vein the very first time. I love that the lab is on site, the wait time is never long, and the turnaround time on my results was quick.
