Breast Cancer Screening-The percentage of women 50-74 years of age who had a mammogram to screen for breast cancer improved to (  5.62  % ) 

Breast Cancer Screening Recommendations

The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is an organization made up of doctors and disease experts who look at research on the best way to prevent diseases and make recommendations on how doctors can help patients avoid diseases or find them early.

The USPSTF recommends that women who are 50 to 74 years old and are at average risk for breast cancer get a mammogram every two years. Women who are 40 to 49 years old should talk to their doctor or other health care professional about when to start and how often to get a mammogram. Women should weigh the benefits and risks of screening tests when deciding whether to begin getting mammograms before age 50.

important covid-19 update

As a valued member of our patient community, we appreciate the trust you place in us and want to ensure that your health is our top priority.  Family Practice and Internal Medicine remains open and is expanding accessibility for the duration of COVID-19.  In compliance with current recommendations from the CDC, including best practices for infection control, our goal is to minimize any unnecessary risk to our patients and our staff by transitioning most visits to telemedicine (telephone or video calls). 

 

We are currently using a HIPAA compliant program to maintain all privacy during our telemedicine contact.  Should you need to be seen in the office, you will be screened before entering the building for any signs and symptoms of illness and your temperature will be taken.  Our staff has all appropriate protective equipment necessary to maintain the highest safety standards.

Our providers have the capability to order COVID-19 testing through Yale New Haven Hospital.  Due to the limited supply of testing available, your provider will determine if testing is necessary on a case by case basis.
