What We Do
We are dedicated to the wellness of the whole woman. We treat not only breast cancer, but also benign breast diseases, including breast pain.
We also offer a tailored surveillance program for high-risk patients. This can include patients who have family members with breast cancer, or patients who have undergone biopsies and have diagnoses of atypical breast findings that are not cancer.
Our comprehensive team of doctors is here to help answer all questions regarding breast cancer and treatment and to provide personalized, compassionate care to ensure the best possible results. We work very hard to enable our patients move through the pathway of care as seamlessly and comfortably as possible. Our goal is to be available to see patients within 48 hours or less when a consultation appointment is needed.

Why We Are Different
Every patient is an individual with her/his needs, so we aim to be responsive to those needs. If the patient wants to move quickly through a series of tests, we do our best to accommodate that preference. We also recognize that some patients need more time to consider the information we have provided and to gather other opinions and support.
The WESTMED Comprehensive Breast Center, serving individuals in Westchester County and Fairfield County, has received full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). This program, administered by the American College of Surgeons, is awarded only to those centers that have met the program’s criteria in all clinical areas involved in treating patients with diseases of the breast. To become accredited, breast centers must be voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and must successfully complete a stringent performance review. The NAPBC designation indicates that WESTMED is practicing state-of-the-art compassionate care.
Taking care of patients with breast cancer and breast diseases requires a team approach. Our physicians from a variety of specialties work together to ensure seamless, convenient care.
Our breast care team brings together board-certified breast surgeons, radiologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, plastic surgeons and radiation oncologists.
