    I said no, but if I travel two hours I can have wheelchair access to a mammogram. My uro-gynecologist is 4hrs away (that's one way).

    The Gyn is easy to find for me but the mammogram is only for standing people. The Gyn is private, maybe if I call one of the private hospitals I can get a mammogram too.

    The Gyn has a very nice chair, very accessible and very easy to transfer.

    My primary care doc has a hi/low table in one of the exam rooms. B/C of age I haven't had to worry about the mammo access yet.

    I use to just have access for mammograms but my primary care just bought a hi/low table so now I have access to both. I use to be lifted to the table for gyn.
