More importantly, if anything suspicious is found, patients will receive follow-up testing and expert consultation within days – not weeks.

Our advanced digital mammography technology provides the highest level of accuracy for even the smallest tumors.
Breast Cancer Team
For those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, they meet with our surgeons for consultation, treatment, and follow-up within the Breast Center. Care is coordinated with the multi-disciplinary team of cancer specialists including Radiology, Pathology, Medical Oncology, and Radiation Oncology.
The Breast Health Center at Lakeside Hospital is staffed by a Nurse Practitioner, fellowship-trained breast Radiologists, and Surgeons who are dedicated to and have special training in breast care.
