3 Reasons to Choose Bedford Breast Center for Your Next Mammogram
More than providing access to the most advanced imaging technology, an exceptional breast center offers a personalized and comfortable experience for its patients.
At Bedford Breast Center in Los Angeles, CA, the well-being of our patients is our focus. We believe that a friendly, home-like environment creates confidence and removes much of the stress associated with breast cancer diagnosis. By providing patients with the highest level of breast care, we can offer a unique mammogram experience much better than an imaging center can.
What is An Imaging Center?
Run by radiologists, an imaging center offers a spectrum of diagnostic scans to help detect diseases. Doctors use diagnostic and screening tests to help prevent or treat a disease or to monitor the after-effects of treatment. Women’s imaging services include mammography and ultrasound scans. The staff are not necessarily specially trained for breast imaging services, but rather a broad range of imaging. Patients can come for annual imaging appointments, but these centers do not provide any further care. If an image reveals a problem, patients will need to go to another provider for treatments. Bedford Breast Center provides imaging and treatment all in our beautiful office for a more personal approach.
Why Bedford is Best
Bedford Breast Center is a concept designed by physicians who truly understand what superior health care means. As women who have personally experienced not having access to high-quality, full-service breast health care facilities, we made it our goal to create a better patient experience by providing more effective and compassionate breast cancer diagnosis and surgical services.

Here are three reasons why you will receive the best patient care at our Los Angeles, CA medical center:
1. Focus Is Only on Breast Health
As with any breast imaging, accurate reading and proper diagnosis are highly dependent on the doctor’s skill level and experience interpreting the images. We staff our Beverly Hills, CA, breast center with not just imaging experts but breast experts who can better address your needs during a mammogram. Led by breast-disease specialist and surgeon Dr. Heather Richardson, and breast surgical oncologist, Dr. Leslie Memsic, our imaging team is known for their superior diagnostic skills, detailed analysis, and friendly, caring manner. Furthermore, we only utilize the most advanced technologies in breast cancer screening, including 3D mammography, biopsies, and breast ultrasounds in our state-of-the-art facility and the most advanced techniques, such as our Nipple Sparing Mastectomy, so we can help you cancel cancer, not beauty.
2. Spa Experience
Bedford Breast Center in Beverly Hills, CA is created for women by women. Our female-led approach is why concierge care is a point of pride for our office. We focus on providing individually tailored care in a warm, beautiful, and supportive environment where patients are treated with grace, kindness, and respect. We insist on personalized attention from positive, caring doctors and staff who will be with you every step of the way. We guide patients through all their options, and our team offers dedicated support from the moment a patient comes in for a diagnosis to the day when that patient is happy, healthy, and cancer-free. We consider it a privilege to care for our diverse spectrum of patients.
Our patient testimonials provide glowing insight into our staff and doctors’ care, so new patients can know what to expect.
“My friends keep on asking why I chose Bedford Breast Center,” said Kristy T. “The short answer is, I felt more at home with Bedford. I know that probably doesn’t help, but that’s the best way I can describe it. Bedford’s doctors, nurses, and other team members treated me with a level of care above and beyond. I felt like I was getting the best care possible. I was at ease almost immediately when faced with a pretty difficult period in my life. And that feeling never went away.”
