If you are in need of urgent or emergency care call 911 or go to your nearest emergency department at your local hospital.
If you have fever, cough or shortness of breath, do not come to UAMS or any other doctor’s office, urgent care clinic or emergency room without first calling and getting instructions.
If someone needs urgent medical care and could have been exposed to COVID-19, tell the operator when you call 911.
Outpatient Visitor Guidelines
Due to an increase in COVID-19 patients in Arkansas and across the country, UAMS is implementing new visiting policies for our clinics. Effective March 20, 2020, patients must come to their visit alone, unless there are special needs such as:
- Patients undergoing a procedure that requires a driver
- Minor patients
- Patients in a wheelchair who need assistance
Visitors must be 18 or older and pass a health screening before entering a UAMS building.
About Breast Cancer Clinic
Hearing the words “you have breast cancer” brings with it many questions and emotions. Our staff understands your fears and has the expertise to help you battle this disease.
Our Breast Cancer Clinic offers comprehensive evaluation of breast pain, breast lumps and abnormal mammograms. A team of nurses and doctors will listen to your concerns, evaluate your findings and make competent recommendations — all in a short period of time.
New patients are generally seen within two to three days. A breast biopsy can be done and preliminary results given the same day. Biopsies can be done in our office with only a 1 cm incision required. You do not need to have surgery or be put to sleep.
If you do receive a diagnosis of breast cancer, evaluations and surgical procedures are carefully coordinated with medical and radiation oncologists throughout the state to provide total cancer care.
We also are available for second opinions to confirm the recommendations of your local physicians or give you alternatives from the breast team at the forefront of breast cancer research and treatment.
Should you require breast reconstruction, a surgeon with extensive reconstruction experience is available to see you in the same building as our clinic, reducing your number of office visits.
Additionally, some patients are eligible to participate in clinical research studies where appropriate.
