Consultation (One-stop Clinic)

Miss Roy offers One-stop clinic visit (also referred to as Triple Assessment) to patients needing assessment for breast symptoms. We aspire to give you the clinic appointment within a week as we appreciate the anxiety and stress caused by breast symptoms.

Consultation with Miss Roy

When you arrive to the clinic, you would see Miss Roy for assessment of your symptoms or concerns, following which she would advice you of the indicated scans, which would be done on the same day on most occasions.

Scans (Diagnostic Mammogram and/or ultrasound)

Please ensure you have sufficient time on your hand to allow time for scans (this can sometime take up to 2 -3 hours), otherwise you could choose to book the scan appointment for another day.

Biopsy or aspiration

Some patients may require biopsy following the scans and is usually offered at the same time. There are occasions when the biopsy needs special equipment and therefore needs to be scheduled for another day.

The scan results are explained by a friendly radiologist the same day before you leave the clinic. You and your GP are then written to by the surgeon to ensure you have a written record of the consultation with the outcome.
