Your breast imaging study will be interpreted by affiliated Board Certified Radiologists who work in the Center. Each of our four affiliated radiologists interpret over 2,000 mammograms a year, almost four times the standard requirement for accreditation.
Primary Care Physicians:
Stay involved in every step of your breast care experience. Your primary care physician will be informed of all your imaging results. If an abnormality is found, your primary care provider will be working with the team to insure all the necessary follow up care is arranged.
Breast Care Surgeons:
Sometimes an abnormality requires further attention. A surgeon will assist in diagnosing breast abnormalities. If you are recommended to consult with a surgeon, we will work with your primary care provider to insure you receive a timely and convenient referral and appointment.
Pathologists are physicians with expertise in establishing medical diagnoses based on the examination of tissues and cells. If your breast abnormality requires a biopsy, it will be examined by an experienced, board-certified affiliated pathologist and co-reviewed by a second pathologist. Several of our affiliated pathologists are also certified in cytopathology and have completed special training fellowships in breast pathology.
Registered Nurses, specially trained in breast care, add a level of clinical excellence to the Center. Our nurse is available to answer your questions, teach breast self-exam, perform clinical breast exams, and navigate you through any breast abnormality. Collaborating with the breast care team the RN provides coordinated care keeping you connected and informed.
