October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Early detection is critical for the successful treatment of breast cancer. New treatments and early detection have pushed this disease’s five-year survival rate to over 90%.
ARC encourages early detection for our patients. We send reminders through MyChart or personal letters and call patients who are overdue. We also provide easy ways to schedule an appointment on our web site or through MyChart. With all of our efforts, our patients follow through at a rate of 75% for women 50-74 years - above the Texas average rate of 67%. Thank you for responding to our reminders and taking your health seriously.
Make a pledge to get your mammogram
You can make your health a priority and schedule a mammogram anytime at ARC … not just in October. Schedule your mammogram at a time that is convenient for you. You can schedule your mammogram during week days at three ARC locations – ARC Far West, ARC South 1st, and ARC Center Street in Kyle. If you prefer an early morning, evening, or Saturday appointment, you can book at ARC Far West.
