Sandhills Women’s Care Has New Location in Northeast Columbia

Sandhills Women’s Care has moved into a new location in Northeast Columbia at 233 Longtown Road. The spacious, 15,000-sq-ft office has 14 exam rooms, a procedure room, two ultrasound suites and two labs. Patients also have access to two new services – 3-D mammography and DEXA scans.

In addition to the Northeast Columbia location, Sandhills Women’s Care also has an office in West Columbia inside Lexington Medical Park 1 on the hospital campus.

3-D mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), is recommended for women who are having their first screening mammogram or those who have dense breast tissue. The Sandhills Women’s Care office in Northeast Columbia is the second location in Lexington Medical Center’s network of care to offer this state-of-the-art technology. DEXA scans use X-rays to show the strength of bones. In general, the denser the bone, the stronger it is, and the less likely it is to break or fracture. The practice also offers 3D/4D ultrasounds.

The providers at Sandhills Women’s Care are Douglas M. Addy, MD; Jully A.F. Aguirre, MD; Thomas C. Austin, MD; Crystal Y. Johnson, MD; and Jennifer B. Linfert, MD. Dr. Aguirre and Dr. Linfert joined the practice recently.

The new Northeast Columbia location of Sandhills Women’s Care provides patients with quality services close to their homes or jobs. And the practice is large enough to continue to meet the health care needs of the community as it grows. With five board-certified physicians, Sandhills Women’s Care offers patients of all ages a full range of obstetric and gynecologic services — from routine well care to specialized diagnostics.
