Patients with breast cancer or suspected breast cancer, and patients who are at high risk to develop breast cancer are offered comprehensive care and treatment in a compassionate and timely manner by an experienced and caring staff. Medical director and surgeon Jack Traylor, MD, and surgical breast oncologist Shawn McKinney, MD, FACS, have a thorough understanding of breast disease based on years of experience and comprehensive, current training. They are assisted by three full-time oncology nurses and a surgical assistant who are dedicated to the breast cancer program and their patients. Highly trained 3D mammography, ultrasound and stereotactic biopsy technicians assist the physicians in obtaining diagnostic results.
The Diagnostic Breast Center has earned accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, a consortium of national, professional organizations dedicated to the improvement of the quality of care and monitoring of outcomes of patients with diseases of the breast.
