Same-day appointments: Experience the convenience

women's healthImagine how nice it would be for patients to have their annual Pap smear and mammogram appointments scheduled to take place on the same day. The service representatives and mammography technicians at the Phyllis Leach Breast Center at Mercy Medical Center and the Mercy-based OB/GYN team have worked together to make this possible for women ages 40 years and up.

So what are the benefits of having both appointments on the same day?

  • This set up makes it easy for you to manage your annual preventative care
  • Both appointments will take place under one roof (and you’ll only have to travel to the clinic once, instead of two separate days for your appointments)
  • There is an on-site DEXA scanner for bone density testing, which can also be bundled into the same-day appointments

How do schedule your appointment:

Once you’ve scheduled your gynecology appointment, please call the Phyllis Leach Breast Center at Mercy Medical Center at 920-236-1880 to schedule your annual digital mammogram on the same day.  We believe this will make it easy and convenient for you to manage your annual preventative care with back to back appointments.
