Carol M. Baldwin Breast Care Center
A Special Level of Care
The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Care Center provides multi-discliplinary service in that the surgeon and radiologist are present on site so that the clinical presentation is correlated with the radiologic findings. Both disciplines review mammographic and clinical findings together (not just by report). Feasibly, a patient can undergo a mammography on the same day as an examination by the surgeon and have results of both findings prior to her going home that day.
Another reason why the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Care Center is unique is that it serves as a research center, providing the latest available knowledge to one's diagnosis and treatment. In house and ECOG protocols are made available to eligible patients if they are interested. A weekly multi-disciplinary breast conference takes place in which patients are presented and discussed in order to offer the input of various physicians to a patient's treatment plan.
