Welcome to the North Valley Breast Clinic
We want you to have the best possible experience during your visit to the clinic.
To that end, we try to do all everything you need to have done during your visit. For example, if you need an ultrasound because you are found to have increased breast density, we do this during your visit. As a result, your visit may take some time.
Plan on at least:
New client visit – 2 hrs
You have a problem – 2 hrs
Follow-up without imaging – 30 min
Follow-up with imaging – 1 hr
A procedure – 1 hr
To make your visit faster:
Don’t wear any deodorant, perfume, body lotion, or antiperspirant if you are getting a mammogram
Don’t have food, drink, or gum for one hour prior to your appointment (in case we recommend genetic testing)
Don’t wear lipstick or lip balm for one hour prior to your appointment (in case we recommend genetic testing)
Don’t kiss anybody for one hour prior to your appointment (in case we recommend genetic testing)
Do not take any aspirin products, Advil, Aleve, or similar medications for a few days prior to your appointment, unless your doctor recommends that you take these medications.
Print the following forms and bring them with you on the day of your appointment:
If you are a returning client, and it has been a year since your last visit, just bring an updated copy of the Clinical History form. Please be aware that the information we ask you on these forms is important and allows us to provide you the best possible care.
