Yes, we are living in a pandemic, and yes going to a place where people are being tested and treated for COVID-19 may seem counterintuitive, but our local partner Caduceus Medical Group is not only taking every precaution when it comes to COVID-19 but they are also still actively screening women in-person during this time.
Caduceus follows ACOG and USPSTF guidelines and although there may be slight variations these are the current recommendations – Women should be getting mammograms every other year starting at age 40 until age 50 and then annually. Acceptable to stop at age 75.
We had the pleasure of speaking with the newest OBGYN, Dr. Nathaniel DeNicola about Breast Cancer Awareness and what Caduceus offers for women. Please watch the video below to learn more!
Caduceus is proud to walk alongside each and every patient and understands that every patient has a different health plan need. It is so important to talk candidly with your primary care physician so that together you can make a plan for your health.
Whether this is deciding that an early mammogram is right for you or focusing on your diet – these decisions are uniquely personal and Caduceus is proud to have an individual course of action for each person.
So, yes, it is 2020 and we definitely are still living through a pandemic, but that should never stop you from getting a mammogram. It also should not stop you from getting your annual check-up.
Early detection and intervention are key. So don’t let this pandemic stop you from getting your screenings done!
Dr. Nathaniel DeNicola is currently accepting patients.
