Tower is proud to announce, that Tower Breast Diagnostic Center – Northside has been selected by Imaging Economics as “Best of 2011 Radiology Centers.” When it comes to the medical imaging industry, Imaging Economics delivers the business insights, technology intelligence, and trend analysis to top-level radiology executives need to make strategic decisions.
Tower Breast Diagnostic Center – Northside was awarded “Best of 2011 Radiology Centers” highlighting the Comprehensive Breast Program which is what makes Tower Radiology Centers unique to the greater Tampa area. Patients will often wait 2 to 3 months from the time of their abnormal mammogram to a diagnosis. With the creation of the Comprehensive Breast Program at Tower Breast Diagnostic Center- Northside, we have decreased this wait time to 2 to 3 weeks. With the Comprehensive Breast Program, the patient needs only a single prescription. If the mammogram is abnormal, the patient can immediately be scheduled for additional imaging. If a biopsy is needed, the procedure can be scheduled immediately. All the while, a dedicated Nurse Navigator, who is specially trained to guide patients through this process, is communicating with the patients, explaining their results, and answering their questions. If a biopsy is performed, the tissue diagnosis is received from the pathologist within 48 hours and results are given to the patient by the Nurse Navigator.
Tower has a total of 35 board-certified radiologists with 7 of which that sub-specialized in women’s imaging. This team is comprised of Shelly P. Baumann, MD, Stephen A. Stenzler, MD, Miguel H. Del Toro, MD, Enrique J. Urrutia, MD, Katie J. Lester, MD, Todd R. Kumm, MD, and JoAnn M. Gierbolini, MD.
