Patient Testimonials

“What a beautiful and serene space. So nice to see that there is a place where women may be honored and cared for. Thank you!”

“Mammograms save lives! I came here a year ago and this wonderful facility and the good doctors found a small lump that could not be felt. I hate to think where I'd be without that routine mammogram. We are so lucky to live in this day and age with such incredible technology and knowledge.”

“I came today with my mom for a mammogram. She is 74 and scared to death. This will be the first time for the test. The assistant who helped was wonderful. She put my mom at ease and helped her understand she was in charge. It's a blessing to have wonderful people like her to help a family member like myself. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work.”

“I am so grateful for the wonderful medical expertise of the Sibley’s Breast Center’s staff and affiliates. Under (their care), I have been enabled to move through this crisis and life journey feeling secure, confident and encouraged. I am now a patient on file on the Sibley’s Center’s shelf. This is where I want to be for health and support. How lucky for all who become cared for by these tremendously skillful and knowledgeable professionals—should special care be needed.”
