If our pathologists determine that you do need a biopsy, we know this can be a stressful experience. Therefore, we want to do everything in our power to make it as easy as possible for you. Our Breast Health Liaison, Mary Beth Revak, will walk you through all steps of this procedure: she will make the necessary appointments as soon as possible, address any concerns you may have, and stay with you during the actual procedure. When you come to the Breast Health Center for a biopsy, you will be escorted to your own private waiting room; your family is welcome to wait with you and/or accompany you during the biopsy.
Mary Beth will provide you with a soft robe, just like you would wear during a day at the spa, and make sure the table for the procedure is draped in warmed linens. The actual biopsy is done using state-of-the-art digital machinery, so the entire procedure is as painless as possible and over within minutes. Within just two or three days, we will notify you with the results of your test, and Mary Beth will discuss necessary next steps with you.
