Breast care plays an important role in helping women of all ages stay healthy, happy and thriving. That's why Ochsner Lafayette General Breast Center operates with the latest technology available in breast imaging and diagnostics.
This allows our team to provide faster service and increased comfort to each of our patients. We’re the best option in breast care. While we recommend monthly self-exams for all of our patients, once you reach 40 years of age, yearly breast screenings by a medical professional are advised. This gives your doctor additional insight, so they can provide the most thorough level of care for you.
Why Choose Ochsner Lafayette Breast Center?
In order to deliver the highest level of care, we employ only the best. Our staff of breast radiologists, nurses and a fellowship-trained surgical oncologist work together to close the loop on patient diagnoses and treatments. That means streamlined communication and no lost time.
Through our continuum of care, you are able to schedule breast screenings at partnered locations across Acadiana. Your images are then sent straight to our facility where we review the results and follow up with treatment if necessary — with no gaps in communication. Rather than waiting months for an opening, patients can be screened sooner and receive results faster when time matters the most.
From masking requirements to regularly sanitized facilities and an expert staff, we are doing everything we can to ensure our patients feel comfortable visiting our facilities. Our promise to you is that your safety and care is always our primary concern.
Breast Care Coordinator
The Breast Care Program at our center provides women and their loved ones the ease and convenience of having one person to directly contact for coordinating their overall care including scheduling appointments and mammography. Our breast care coordinator will escort you through the entire process from initial medical imaging through breast reconstruction, if needed.
