If you have a problem with your breast, your first step is to meet with us. During your visit, your doctor may also discuss ways to support your health through diet, exercise, and wellness resources.
Learning more with advanced screenings
Once you and your doctor discuss your possible breast problem, specialized tests may help to gather detailed information for your treatment. You will benefit from leading-edge screening capabilities more often found at large, urban medical centers.
Your team of breast care experts
Integrated care comes from the skills and talents of many providers throughout our medical center. It’s care that comes from a team made up of people who can address the unique needs of your condition and well-being. It’s care that starts at the moment you meet us and continues through survivorship and beyond.
Integrated care also means there’s a lot happening on your behalf to give you the most up-to-date care possible. Your doctor may consult with colleagues to get second and third opinions on your treatment. At regular meetings of the Tumor Board, a group of providers—doctors, nurses, social workers, and more—discuss the diagnosis and treatment of their patients. The process is both rigorous and collaborative. The result? You benefit from the knowledge and experience of a wide group of experts, including those who may not be directly involved in your care.
Depending on your needs, the team collaborating on your care may include:
