No amount of aromatherapy oils would make me forget I’m about to have my breasts squished between glass plates in a machine checking for what could be a life altering lump. On the other hand, I suppose if you have to choose between a sterile, medical mammogram or a “luxurious” one, the latter sounds more appealing. With this in mind, Methodist Dallas Medical Center is now offering Monday Night Mammos, a new monthly event. From the press release:
For many women, mammograms are an uncomfortable experience. However, at Methodist Dallas, breast care specialists ensure that women feel relaxed, comfortable, and pampered while they take care of their health. At Monday Night Mammos, women will receive the five-star treatment, beginning the moment they arrive with free valet parking. Soothing aromatherapy, a relaxing chair massage, and a gentle hand rub are next, followed by delicious, light spa cuisine. When it comes time for their mammograms, women are given a soft, warm MammoPad® breast cushion to ensure their comfort. Expert radiologists read the results with the added benefit of Digital ImageChecker® computer aided detection technology which improves early detection. Women receive their results within 24 hours.
Upcoming dates include June 25, July 30, August 27, and September 24. Cost is $266.70. For more information or to RSVP for an upcoming Monday Night Mammos event, head to www.methodisthealthsystem.org/mondaymammos or call 214-947-3441, option 1.
