Imagine a place where you can get your mammogram and know your results on the same day — where follow-up tests are scheduled right away, and results are typically received within 24 hours.
The John C. Lincoln Breast Health and Research Center gives you all of this in a caring, comfortable setting — along with state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and interventional technologies. From routine mammograms to advanced interventional procedures, you'll encounter breast health care that's equally comprehensive, comfortable and cutting edge.
Experts have recognized our commitment to breast care. In March 2011, our center was designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR), the national professional organization for physicians who specialize in medical imaging. Only 633 of the nation's 8,600 breast imaging centers have earned this designation. What's more, our center is just the ninth in Arizona so honored.
