COVID-19 Vaccination’s Impact On Mammogram Results

This swelling is a normal sign that your body is building protection against COVID-19. However, it is possible that this swelling could cause a false reading on a mammogram. For this reason, AWOG physicians recommend getting your mammogram before being vaccinated or rescheduling your mammogram four to six weeks after getting your vaccine.

AWOG Will Begin Seeing Patients for Preventive and Non-Emergent Care

As always, the safety of our patients and staff continues to be a priority for providing care while practicing social distancing. Atlanta Women’s Obstetrics & Gynecology will begin providing in-office preventive and non-emergent care starting Monday, May 4th. This means that you may start scheduling your annual gynecological visits, consultations, IUD insertions, elective procedures, etc. at this time.

 

In the office, social distancing rules will still apply:

 

·         Only the patient will be allowed in the office for the visit—no extra visitors.

·         All patients will be temperature screened upon entering.

·         Patients must wear a mask while in the office.

 

We are also limiting the number of patients that will be seen in the office each day. Please be mindful that the schedules will fill up much faster because of this. If you are due (or overdue) for your annual visit, please call (404) 352-3616 or schedule an appointment online today!
