What to Expect
Patients sometimes seem anxious when they first come to the Breast Health Center. To help calm their anxieties, all new patients visit first with a breast health specialist - a registered nurse who specializes in the area of breast health care.
As a member of the Breast Health team, the specialist will review a first-time patient's breast history and perform a thorough breast examination. She provides education and information regarding the patients specific breast problem or concern.
The patient then sees the doctor, who, after a complete breast examination and review of mammograms and other test results, will discuss the various options for treatment or management of any noted abnormality. Throughout the experience, the breast health specialist is available to act as patient advocate, educator and counselor.
