When attending Specialists on Drummond for the first time (or if you have not seen Dr Bollard for more than a year) we ask that all breast patients complete the below breast questionnaire and return it to us preferably one week prior to your appointment. This can be sent via fax 5330 5995 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to our street address.
In addition to the breast questionnaire, Ms Bollard prefers to view the actual films from any radiology investigations (X-Ray, MRI, CT or Ultrasound) in addition to the report. If you haven’t been given a copy of your films, please contact your provider and ask that they print a copy for you to collect and bring to your appointment. This information is an important part of your consultation and diagnosis. Please call us if you are having trouble locating the films and we will do our best to assist you.
At your consultation with Ms Bollard it may be necessary for her to perform one or more of the following procedures and investigations:
- Fine Needle Aspiration
- Core Biopsy
Therefore, please allow plenty of time for your appointment. We will allocate 30 minutes for your appointment but we may have to allow further time for observation if a biopsy or fine needle test is performed. If possible we recommend that someone attends the appointment with you.
