October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Don’t Ignore Your Own Health

Dr. Lisa Paulis reminds women not to ignore their own health while busy taking care of others. Preventative cancer screenings are important. Early detection is key.

Dr. Paulis talks with Channel 13 WHAM Rochester:

“I would say that women are natural caregivers, and they tend to take care of everybody around them and prioritize their own health last, and we would not recommend that,” said Dr. Lisa Paulis, a radiologist at Elizabeth Wende. “Having mammograms and taking care of yourself is really taking care of your family. Talking to your doctor about the appropriate time to screen, based on your risk, is a conversation everyone should be having with their primary care physician.”
