It’s clearly superior to

Q: When did
Center start using this test?
A: When breast MRI was being pioneered, we became one
of the first private practices to offer the test. We have fellow-ship-trained radiologists with extensive training and experience in reading breast MRIs and doing the MRI-guided biopsy
We’ve been able to decrease the number of false positives

Q: How can
hearing loss affect
a woman’s overall
A: There are many
links between hearing health and other
issues that women
should be aware of.
If you have diabetes,
you’re twice as likely
to have hearing loss.
Women with hearing loss are more likely to be depressed and
research shows a link between hearing loss and dementia.
Hearing loss in women is also tied to the use of common pain
relievers, like ibuprofen and acetaminophen. That link is even
stronger among women under the age of 50. Scheduling a
hearing evaluation can help set a baseline that could play a
role in uncovering related health issues later in life.

Q: Who can benefit the most from “mommy make-
A: Women who have
just had children are the
most common recipients
of this type of makeover. However, it can
also be used for women
who may just want to
feel more confident later
in life. Mommy makeovers most commonly
involve the tummy area,
with a tummy tuck,
breast-lift and sometimes augmentation.
The most frequent comment from patients after
surgery is that they feel more confident with their body.
Q: Is this type of makeover suitable for all patients?
A: I stress careful consideration of each procedure, and if
I don’t think a desired surgery is right for the patient—either
on a physical or emotional level—I will advise against it. I
operate only when I’m fully confident that aesthetic surgery
will improve a patient’s life.

Q: Can pregnancy
cause certain dental
A: A patient who was
seven months pregnant
came to me concerned
about what she thought
was an abscess between
her teeth. It was actually a granuloma, where
blood had collected in a
particular area, and was a
consequence of increased
hormones related to pregnancy. I offered her a special noninvasive treatment for pregnant women that is focused
mostly on preventative care and provided in an organic and
natural manner. She felt comfortable and secure since she did
not have to undergo a major procedure, which she had feared.
Dental needs and maintenance appointments should not be
ignored, especially during pregnancy.
