FAQ

  • Do you provide VIP assistance?
    The VIP coordinator assists patients throughout the whole process of examination, from making reservations to the actual process of examination and consultation, and we offer VIP family waiting area for our VIP clients throughout their stay at the center.
  • Why to think prevention?

    Regular health exams and tests can help find problems before they show any symptoms. They also can help find problems early, when your chances for treatment and cure are better. The screening tests you need depend on your age, health and family history, and lifestyle choices such as what you eat, how active you are, and whether you smoke.

    Positive changes to your everyday routine are easier to make when you are well informed about the status of your health.

  • Is it safe for a breastfeeding mom to get X-rays?

    It is safe for a breastfeeding mom to get any kind of X-ray, including dental X-rays or even chest X-rays. Diagnostic X-rays have no known effect on the milk in the breast at the time of imaging, nor on milk production. But making milk creates denser tissue in your breasts so mammography finding can be inaccurate. Therefore, it is recommended to take mammography at least 3 months after breast feeding. Breast ultrasound can be a primary diagnostic test.
