Women's Excellence has earned ACR accreditation for mammography services. The American College of Radiology (ACR) awards the ACR gold seal of accreditation only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. All mammogram screenings are also analyzed by a board-certified radiologist.

"Preventative healthcare is important for everyone. When it comes to breast health, 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Routine mammograms are the best tool for early breast cancer detection." Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, MD, FACOG, President of Women's Excellence

Women's Excellence recommends that women begin yearly screenings at the age of 40. However, some women have certain risk factors such as family history by a gene mutation that may allow for earlier screening. Women's Excellence also offers genetic cancer testing to women with a family history of breast cancer or other cancers. This test will determine if you are carrying a specific gene that is known to cause breast cancer. For more information, visit https://www.womensexcellence.com/risk-assessment/.

"As part of our dedication to preventative healthcare and patient convenience, we are happy to offer extended weekend mammography hours. It is our hope that women are able to use this time to make their health a priority without utilizing PTO or taking substantial time away from their family!" Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, MD, FACOG.
