World-Class Breast Care

Breast Cancer Screening & Treatment

Our radiologists are dedicated breast experts. They focus solely on breast imaging using techniques such as mammograms (screening and diagnostic), 3D mammograms (tomosynthesis), breast ultrasound and breast MRI. If breast cancer is suspected through screening, you’ll get an appointment with a breast surgeon in less than one week. The breast care team includes surgeons, medical oncologists, breast radiologists, social workers and other experts. At the forefront of their efforts is the patient.

We offer extensive support services for breast cancer patients, including dedicated licensed clinical social workers to meet with you and your caregivers, nutritionists, Flourisha boutique that offers stylish yet functional items for women going through breast cancer treatment and more.

Clinical Trials

  • Although we offer the opportunity for qualified patients to join clinical trials that could lead to new treatment options, we certainly respect the decision not to participate. However, joining clinical trials when you have the opportunity to do so could save your life and the lives of many others with breast cancer.
