Breast Cancer Treatment

Breast Cancer Clinic

Our multidisciplinary team includes breast surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, oncology nurses and psychological, social and spiritual support personnel, as well as a Patient Navigator to coordinate the interactions and guide the patient through the process. Genetic counseling is available as well.  

Our Breast Cancer Clinic allows breast cancer patients to receive timely treatment and counsel. The doctors discuss the patients' cases in conference with other medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists and breast radiologists together in one room. The research nurse specialist informs the physicians about clinical trials for which the patients may be candidates. Together, the team determines the plan of care, and that individualized plan is communicated to each patient. 

Patients and their caregivers also meet with the oncology social worker to review the services and support available to patients, including the new patient packet and our resource library. Patients are given a tour of the Cancer Center and information on available support groups and programs. 

The Michael and Dianne Bienes Comprehensive Cancer Center at Holy Cross Hospital is accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and the Commission on Cancer. For more information or to make an appointment with our Breast Cancer Clinic, call 954-492-5764.
