You mean, I don’t need a doctor’s order for a mammogram?  Nice!
For your convenience, you no longer need an order from your doctor for a screening mammogram at the Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health. If you’ve noticed a change in your breasts or have a history of lumps or cancer, please contact your physician before scheduling your test. Your doctor may request specific images. Plus, we are offering the screening for just $100 to women who call in May to schedule their mammogram before June 30, 2015. Payment accepted time of appointment only. Insurance will not be billed.  Call (815) 300-7076 to schedule your screening mammography appointment.
