Saturday Appointments Available For Breast Health Testing At Boca Regional


Staff report

Too busy to get your mammogram during the week?

Now you can book screening and diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasounds, same-day results as well as bone density tests on the first Saturday of each month at the Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.

The new hours began last month.

“We all lead hectic lives, but health must always be made a top priority. Our new Saturday hours represent the Institute’s commitment to ensuring both comprehensive and convenient care,” said Shakira Sarquis-Kolber, Director of Women’s Imaging at the Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute. “We are most pleased to provide women with this appointment option.”

Mammograms will be performed using the Senographe Pristina™, the next generation in 3D mammography. The Pristina is faster, quieter and has rounded corners with contoured armrests instead of handgrips to maximize comfort during the exam. All mammograms are performed in SensorySuites, which are infused with calming fragrances and provide flat screen monitors that display soothing videos and photos to create a serene environment.

“As the first hospital in the nation to offer the Pristina experience, our Women’s Institute continues to set the standard in breast health. We have the latest technology, outstanding physicians and support staff, years of expertise, a top-quality facility, expedited results and now a more accommodating alternative to scheduling mammograms,” said Kathy Schilling, MD, Medical Director of the Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute.

Major insurances are accepted and financial assistance is available for those without coverage who qualify. Appointments can be made by calling 561-955-4700.
