Mammograms are available at six Kaiser Permanente clinics in Western Washington, and in other areas at breast imaging centers in our network of contracted providers. If you are 40 or older, you don't need a referral to make a mammogram appointment. You may get a letter or call from Kaiser Permanente reminding you to make an appointment.
Safeway parking lots are a common location, as are community health clinics, where Metta Barden showed up earlier this month. Barden, 61, lives five minutes from the Neighborcare High Point clinic and likes the convenience of getting her annual screening mammogram at the same place she sees her family physician. They get you in and out real quick. The van has a reception area and two private changing rooms that lead directly into the back of the exam area, where mammogram technologist Junel DeJarnett is waiting. DeJarnett also works in the main SCCA clinic, but her favorite days unfold on the Mammogram Van, where she has more time to connect with patients.
