Tests, Treatments & FAQs

With breast cancer being the leading cancer of women in the United States, The Leslie Simon Breast Care and Cytodiagnosis Center emphasizes a formal breast care program that addresses early detection, diagnosis, and treatment.

The Breast Care Center features state-of-the-art Mammography and Ultrasound equipment and uses one of the only MRI machines in the world dedicated to breast imaging. These devices represent the most advanced methods available to target and biopsy breast lesions in order to secure rapid diagnosis and treatment.

We also offer a comprehensive High Risk Breast Cancer & Genetic Counseling Program for qualified individuals. The program is discussed in depth here.
