Protecting Health with Preventive Care

Mammograms, colonoscopies, and bone density scans help diagnose and catch disease early before they spread to other areas of the body.

Our most recent report from January, 2013 shows that together our Primary Care Providers, Menopause Specialists, Gastroenterologists and Obstetrics/Gynecologists at The Austin Diagnostic Clinic score above the national average in performing screenings for Breast Cancer, Colon Cancer, and Osteoporosis.
