Care Philosophy

I want to treat my patients as I want to be treated.  That means honesty, respect, kindness, and helpfulness.   I understand how stressful it is even for a routine exam. 

I believe the patient should know everything before they make big decisions.  Medicine is not a cookie cutter answer to every abnormality.

I am a doctor -  a consultant for breast imaging.    For any of my patients -- I am happy to review your images with you.  I truly feel that no woman should leave our breast center confused or feeling like the doctor was not involved. 

I truly love my "job" !   Please let me know how I can do it better!

Bell Buckle, TN |
Had biopsy @ HDH Breast Center and Dr DeHart performed it. TOTAL PAIN FREE. I was so impress with her and her staff. Will return if needed in the future. Very professional and sweet personality to make patient at ease.

She is wonderful, very thoughtful, very knowledgeable. I have always felt comfortable, it is not an easy thing for women to go through, but I feel safe here. She does a great job! I am always glad when it is over, I have had cancer, and she was very caring, and I appreciate also, that she prepared me for surgery. I also like the fact that she has the latest instrumentation.

I recently needed an ultrasond to check an abnormal mammogram. Luckily there was an opening the next day at HDH so I didn't have too much time to panic. The technician was very kind,gentle & reassuring & as soon as she was finished said the radiologist would be in to speak to me momentarily. Once again, I didn't have to wait & worry long. Dr Dehart came in promptly & IMMEDIATELY put me at ease. She was kind, comforting & reassuring. Very sensitive to my feelings. I highly recommend her.

      Dr. DeHart says...

      I enjoy both being primarily in the breast center at Henrico Doctor's Hospital.  

      - Screening mammography with 3D digital mammography (also known as tomosynthesis), 2D digital mammography, and diagnostic mammography with both 2D and 3D digital mammography.   Hand held ultrasound for patients with questionable findings on screening mammograms or for those who have a clinical problem and  3D screening ultrasound for dense breasts with the Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS.) 

      I believe that patients should be as comfortable as possible while having interventional procedures. 

      - Breast biopsy using 3D mammography guidance, 2D Digital mammography guidance,  ultrasound guidance, and MRI guided biopsies. 

      - Mammographic and ultrasound needle localizations for surgical excisions and lumpectomies.  

      - Fine needle aspirations are available for the patient with painful cysts and diagnostic aspirations of suspected abscesses. 

      - Consultations of outside studies are also available with referral.

      I am incredibly fortunate to work with amazing ladies who make every day a pleasure.
