From the moment you contact the Hunterdon Breast Surgery Center, our primary concern is to ensure your scheduling, diagnosis, treatment and recovery is as convenient and stress-free as possible. If you are experiencing breast pain and/or breast abnormalities or if you have received an abnormal mammogram or imaging result, please call us at 908-237-4106 and select Option 1. We will do our best to schedule a timely and convenient appointment.
Please read through the steps below and don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions.
New Patient Forms: Please print and fill out the New Patient Paperwork Form, the Family Risk Assessment Form and the Permission to Share Medical Information forms found here. Don’t forget to make yourself copies and bring them with you to your first appointment.
Insurance Coverage: Please call your insurance company to check on coverage, benefits and if a referral is needed. If you have a billing question or concern please call 908-237-4106 and select Option 5. Please bring your insurance card with you.
Imaging Results & Prior Exams: If outside of the Hunterdon Healthcare Network, please bring any diagnostic or imaging reports (scans, X-rays, MRIs, CTs, etc.) with you to your appointment. Also, keep track of when and where tests and examinations have taken place. For instance: were you referred to us by your OB/GYN or primary care physician? What was the date of your last mammogram and where was it taken?
Questions & Concerns: Some patients find it helpful to write down their questions and concerns for the doctor prior to their appointment so they don’t forget. Also, keeping a list of signs and symptoms of a problem and how often they occur can be helpful for diagnosis.
What to Wear: Wear something comfortable and easy to change out of. You will be asked to undress and wear a patient gown.
What to Expect During a Consultation
On your first consultation with the Hunterdon Breast Surgery Center, your doctor will examine you, review your test results (images, scans, discs), and discuss recommendations and future tests and treatment plans.
Due to scheduling, biopsies are generally NOT performed in our offices on the day of consultation. If needed, your doctor will discuss biopsy scheduling at your consultation.
