Stony Brook Medicine's mobile mammography van, equipped with an exam room and private dressing room, is coming to the Montauk Fire Department on Thursday, April 11, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Due to the demand for mammograms, these mobile appointments must be booked well in advance, according to an announcement from the Montauk Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary. The phone number to call for an appointment is 631-638-4135.

The service is open to women 40 and up who have not had a mammogram within the past year. Eligible women should be neither pregnant nor breastfeeding, nor should they have had a prior breast cancer diagnosis or problems with implants or discharge. They should also have a primary care doctor, internist, or gynecologist willing to accept the results on their behalf.

Photo identification and a health insurance card must be brought to the appointment. Those without health insurance are eligible for a free screening through the Cancer Services Program of New York.
