Self breast exams: to do or not to do?

Remember when there were monthly emails you could sign up for to remind you and your friends to do your self breast exams at home? Remember seeing the news anchors talking about their monthly self breast exams in an attempt to remind you to do your breast “due diligence?” What happened to self breast exams and are they still important?

Initially, self breast exams were recommended as a screening tool to help early detection of breast cancer. Unfortunately long-term studies have not confirmed that they actually live up to their hype. Two large studies looking at over 200,000 women in both Russia and China didn’t show any difference in breast cancer mortality after 15 years between the women who were ...

TeleHealth programs use secure video connections, high definition imaging and other sophisticated technologies to allow specialists at Seattle’s Swedish Medical Center to diagnose and propose treatment options for patients who are not sitting in the same exam room, hospital room or emergency department as the Swedish physician. Advancements in medical technology and online security suggest there are endless opportunities to expand access to care through telehealth.

In both urban and rural areas of Washington, transportation issues and physician shortages pose significant challenges for patients who require specialized care. Studies show patients benefit from the improved access to teams of highly qualified physicians that telehealth provides.

Recent changes to Pap guidelines may have you wondering when exactly you need to have a pap smear and in turn, how often you really need an annual exam with your gynecologist. Here I’m going to review the new pap guidelines so you can determine if you are up to date! Of course, every patient should check with their physician about what they recommend regarding the timing of cervical cancer screening because some specific populations may have different recommendations. These are just the general guidelines.

Pap smears are a screening test for cervical cancer. They have helped decrease the incidence of cervical cancer by more than 50% in the last 30 years. Over the last decade we’ve also begun testing for HPV (or Human Papillomavirus) which is by far the most common cause of abnormal pap smears and cervical cancer. It is an incredibly common sexually transmitted virus that can be spread by genital to genital contact but also oral to genital and manual to genital contact. It has been e...

Dr. Fuller was wonderful and listened to my questions. I feel that she shared some helpful new information with me and made decisions that- although based on current standards and recommendations- also considered my individual needs and preferences.

Dr. Fuller is amazing. I feel like I can be completely honest with her, and she will give me real, practical advice that I trust. I live in a different neighborhood and could deliver my baby easier at a different place, but I really wanted her to be my OBGYN. I've already recommended her to many of my friends and will continue to do so. THANK YOU!!

I'm very happy with Dr Fuller as my provider-she's smart, efficient, and kind. I also have liked her partners who I have interacted with (Drs [...] & [...]). I have referred a friend/colleague to Ashley, and she liked her very much too. I'm very satisfied with the practice as a whole. MA ([...]) and RNs (especially [...]) are great too.

I've already recommended this office and this specific provider to others. She was very helpful and thorough. Exam was comfortable and quick - she kept me informed, which I appreciated. Afterwards she gave me lots of information and suggestions - no pressure. She went above and beyond, providing a list of other providers for issues I was thinking about. Felt it was very personal interaction and i felt comfortable sharing my own information with her (surprising how that isn't always the case with some doctors).

Dr. Fuller provides excellent, excellent, excellent patient care. She listened to my questions and my appointments never felt rushed. She is down to earth and really cares about me as a person. I also feel that she is a fantastic doctor. She was always up to date with my medical history and provided all options for medical care. I am so happy she is my doctor.

I really like Dr. Fuller - however she seems impatient about my questions & like she is rushing me out. Seems to brush my concerns off instead of reassuring me or asking what I need.

I have recommended half a dozen clients to Dr. Fuller, including my mother - all of whom think she's a fantastic physician.
