Learn how John C. Lincoln's Breast Health and Research Center provides compassionate, coordinated and technologically advanced care.
The John C. Lincoln Breast Health and Research Center is setting a new standard for breast imaging and interventional services for women across the Valley.
While our center excels at providing routine screening mammograms, we also have the technologies, experience and resources to provide comprehensive breast cancer care.
Experts have taken note of our commitment to care. Our center recently was named 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 the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation. Our center is just the ninth in Arizona to receive this recognition.
Less Time Waiting, Less Time Worrying
A key part of our patient care philosophy revolves around wait times. Less time waiting for appointments means less time worrying.
We'll not only get you in for your mammogram quickly, but we'll also perform your biopsy — and help you see your surgeon, if necessary — as quickly as possible.
- For mammography, we'll see our patients within one week of calling for an appointment.
- If a patient is already experiencing a problem with her breast, we'll offer mammography within 72 hours.
- Diagnostic exam results are provided to the patient at the time of service.
- If a biopsy is needed, we'll perform the biopsy within 24 to 48 hours of scheduling the appointment.
- Biopsy test results are typically back in 24 hours.
- If surgery is required, our patients will see a breast surgeon within five working days.
We are quick to adopt new technologies, as well. In April 2011, we became the first breast center in Arizona to provide breast screenings with 3D digital mammography. This state-of-the-art technology will enable our specialists to identify cancer at an earlier, more treatable stage, ultimately saving more lives.
We also offer brain and spine scans on the premises, using a sophisticated MRI machine. Breast cancer survivors are often prescribed breast and spine MRIs by their oncologists, as part of their annual checkups.
We're working with, and referring to, medical professionals who are willing to meet our high standards of care. Through this network of physicians, women will receive treatment faster through referrals.
Going Beyond the Diagnosis
The John C. Lincoln Breast Health and Research Center has been designed with patient comfort in mind. Its soothing interior is highlighted by works of art and a shimmering chandelier.
In our eyes, each patient is more than a chart, whether she visits us for an annual screening mammogram or additional diagnostic or interventional procedures.
If additional care is needed, our patient care coordinator will guide you through the entire process. The patient care coordinator will help you navigate your care, by compiling medical records on your behalf, helping with physician appointments and communicating with referring physicians to coordinate the next steps in your treatment plan.
Instead of carrying films around from appointment to appointment, patients will get a notebook that includes:
- The diagnosis and films on a compact disk.
- Support group information.
- Valuable Internet sites for research.
- Sets of questions to ask specialists, to help the patient prepare for upcoming physician appointments.
We also have a beautiful multimedia educational library and conference room. This conference room has DVDs on topics such as inflammatory breast cancer and chemotherapy. Our library offers many free reference materials and brochures, and we also have books that patients can check out.
