I was decided on getting a mammogram last December but I specifically remember my doc saying I should get it when I'm 30.
I'm 29.5 right now.
And since a mammogram, as the radiologist told me, has radiation-related effects on the body, I decided to postpone it 'til I'm actually 30.
Anyway, that's not the point of this post.
Yesterday morning I received a text from my doctor's secretary reminding me that I'm due for another ultrasound. I didn't need reminding but I really appreciate the gesture. It's been around 6 months since my last check-up.
For them to make that extra effort of keeping track of everyone due for an ultrasound is definitely value-added service.
