Breast Treatments & Services

We specialize in diagnosis, staging, treatment, management and research for patients with breast diseases and tumors.

The Breast Evaluation Clinic is for patients who have not been given a diagnosis of cancer. This can include those patients seeking annual screening, having a breast symptom, or who’ve had a mammogram or ultrasound which requires additional work-up. In many cases women can have a biopsy the same day, if needed. 

Within the Breast Oncology Program, patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer may meet with a breast surgeon, medical oncologist and/or radiation oncologist to develop a personalized care plan.

Different types of treatment and technology are available for patients with breast cancer. The multispecialty breast cancer team can offer your patients comprehensive services, including:
