Members of Your Care Team We design care around you, so your care team may include some or all of the members of our breast care team. Primary Care Provider (PCP) Your primary care provider is the link between you and your specialists, whether you have a breast health concern, abnormal breast exam or abnormal mammogram. Surgeon If you’re undergoing a breast biopsy or other breast surgery, your surgeon will discuss breast cancer treatment options with you and may refer you to other members of your care team, including cancer care specialists. Surgeons specialize in surgically removing cancerous breast tissue using a lumpectomy (removal of the lump) or mastectomy (removal of the entire breast), and performing sentinel node biopsies (to check for the spread of cancer). Nurse Navigators Our nurse navigator team is trained in every aspect of emotional support, care coordination and education to help you on your journey to wellness.

Radiologist All our radiologists are board-certified, and specialize in performing imaging exams and reading the results, including mammograms, ultrasounds, MRIs and other diagnostic exams.

Your doctors work with pathologists to diagnose and evaluate the seriousness of your condition.

Radiation Oncologist Your radiation oncologist provides radiation and nuclear medicine therapies to treat breast cancer, including advanced, highly precise treatment using our linear accelerator.
