My Latest MRI Results…

Donna_juice“Normal findings. Nothing suspicious. No evidence of DCIS.” – Dr. Richard Reitherman, Medical Director of Breast imaging, Memorial Care Breast Center, Laguna Hills, CA — Feb. 3, 2014

How many Medical Directors are gracious enough to give out their direct cell # and actually answer the phone to discuss MRI results with patients?

Praise for Aurora RODEO MRI, Dr. Reitherman and Memorial Care Breast Center in Laguna Hills, CA! It was certainly worth the 1 hour drive each way!!

Dr. Reitherman asked about my history. After sharing my story (low grade DCIS, 3 surgeries, a close margin, no radiation and no further mammograms), his response was, “While legally I still need to recommend mammograms as standard of care, I think an annual MRI is a reasonable approach.”

My approach to breast health is so much more than an annual MRI! It’s been four years and I am still happily following Donna’s Daily Rx.

About Donna Pinto

I am originally from New Jersey and moved to Los Angeles with my family at age 12. After graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in Journalism, I had a short-stint in magazine advertising sales before landing my "dream job" with Club Med. For two years I worked at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met in Ixtapa, Mexico and we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. This was also a research project for a book we wrote called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of a quote book for new graduates -- "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life." In 1997, we settled in San Diego and I was blessed to work part-time from home for non-profit organizations while raising our two boys. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis changed my life. DCIS 411 is the culmination of my on-going journey and discoveries.

    Congratulations Donna! February 7th will be my 2-year anniversary. I did get a copy of my bloodwork, and it looks good. I see the oncologist the end of the month.
