    I might start in a controversial way. The best experience I had was from a mammo who was very professional but did not communicate with me at all except to tell me where to stand and what to do. I had every confidence in her assertive manner!

    Did the assertive manner make you feel nervous? Tense?

    No it gave me the confidence that she knew exactly what needed to be done. That’s what I need when I go for a mammo

    I think a professional manner is important and does inspire confidence but I think introducing yourself is also very important

    THast’s great. So is it the manner of the health professional that gives you confidence in their skills? DId you feel you have control of the proceedure?

    She might have introduced herself but that’s not the lasting impression (I’ve forgotten what her name is even if she did tell me). I didn’t particularly feel in control but I didn’t mind. I wanted her to be in control. Is that a bad thing?

    Thats is good. The assertiveness is due to the very precise way we like to see the breast images. We have to think about the nipple, the pec, lateral medial borders and many more all within 6 mins!

    Can I ask was this your first mammo?Do you think you would have felt the same if this was your first time?
    I am a Mammographer and I always find ladies need some level of connection, be it a smile or sometimes more. In our role I believe we become skilled in ‘reading’ what a lady needs. Even if like in your case it is to be a minimal professional approach. What does others think?
