Care Coordinated by a Nurse Navigator
Facing a possible breast cancer diagnosis is distressing and having to deal with the system of appointments for tests, consultations, second opinions and treatment decisions can be confusing. Our nurse navigator is a registered nurse with the clinical expertise and compassion to provide you with personalized care when you need it most.
The nurse is there to guide each individual patient through the process. She explains clinical information and treatment options in everyday language and offers emotional support and referrals to other medical and support services when appropriate. She serves as a liaison with your care team; helps you make informed decisions; schedules and coordinates appointments; expedites the process to relieve your anxiety; and identifies barriers to care and helps to resolve them.
We’re proud to be a certified participant in the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers™ as evidence of our commitment to provide each patient with the highest quality of care.
