That’s right; same-day mammogram scheduling is now available at Duke Regional. No more waiting weeks for an appointment, and no doctor’s order is needed. All we need is the name of your physician for follow up.

“Many women understand the important of an annual screening mammogram, but put it off for a variety of reasons,” says Judy Coman, RT (R)(M), mammography manager at Duke Regional Hospital.  “That is why we make the mammography experience as easy, convenient and pleasant as possible. “

Appointments are available from 7:30 am to 6 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 7:30 am to 7:30 pm Wednesday. The last appointment is scheduled one hour before closing each day.  To schedule your mammogram, call 919-470-5272.

Check in next Wednesday afternoon for our first Pink Tip.
