Hoag participates in most major health insurance plans and networks. Find specific insurance information and speak with your providing physician to ensure that your insurance is accepted.
Mammogram Screening Preparation
If this is your first time having a mammogram at Hoag Breast Center or one of Hoag’s imaging facilities, please obtain any previous mammographic studies and bring them with you for comparison purposes. Comparing previous films with present studies allows for a proper diagnosis to be performed.
In addition, on the day of your mammogram, please do not use deodorants, creams or powders in the underarm or breast area. Since you will be asked to undress from the waist up and wear a comfortable robe, you will find that wearing a skirt or pants will be more convenient than a dress.
If you have concerns or questions about your upcoming mammogram, please call us at 949-764-5780.
