If you are diagnosed with a breast abnormality or breast cancer, you want to be certain that the diagnosis and treatment options you select will offer you the best chance for a cure. Roger Williams Breast Health Program was designed with the patient in mind.
The program is home to several specialists, all located in one convenient location. These physicians and clinicians work closely together using the very latest methods for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer and other breast disorders. As a physician-supervised treatment program, we are focused on educating and guiding women through the diagnosis and treatment of breast disease. And, our physicians are certified by the American Board of Surgery, specialize in surgical oncology, and are members of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.
Roger Williams images patients with our new Digital Mammography machine. This allows technologists to perform exams and view the images immediately. This machine also allows radiologists to better visualize all of the breast tissue, even on patients with dense breasts. Mammography and ultrasound are both available in the office. Our exam rooms feature a handicapped exam chair that converts into an examination table to easily take patients
from consultation to examination.
In the Roger Williams Breast Health Clinic, mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies, and additional physician consults occur during the same visit so if needed, treatment planning can start without delay. Clinical trials, support groups, Look Good… Feel Better,® nutritional support, and clinical oncology social worker services are also available to our patients.
