Using the latest state-of-the-art technology, our expert staff offers compassionate care for all women. To prevent, diagnose and treat breast cancer, we provide 3D mammography, screening, diagnostic breast ultrasound, breast MRI, breast biopsy, cancer risk assessment and genetic counseling at three convenient locations. We’re proud to be a designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
Our specially trained breast health nurse practitioners provide breast health education, case management, advocacy and support — all available on-site by appointment. We also offer nutrition, psychosocial support and counseling by referral. Our board-certified breast radiologists are also on-site Tuesday through Friday.
Early detection serves as one of the most important tools in the fight against breast cancer. That’s why we offer an extensive list of screenings and services. Utilizing the latest technology, our goal is to detect any signs of concern as early as possible. We know waiting for important results can be stressful, which is why in most instances patients receive their results on the day of their visit.
Breast Cancer Support Group
We created a Breast Cancer Support Group that welcomes survivors, newly diagnosed, family members, and friends. This group is a safe place in which you can talk about and work through the feelings and challenges you may experience with other people who have gone through similar experiences. Being a part of a support group often creates a sense of belonging that helps each person feel more understood, and less alone.
This group meets on the third Wednesday of every month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm within the Breast Care Center. It is facilitated by Sabine Manoli, MD, FACS, and the Breast Care Center staff. This is a free group and no pre-registration is required. If you have any additional questions, contact us at (603) 595-5700, option #2.
