Integrated Care at Your Local, Trusted Breast Center in Southeastern MA
The Southcoast Breast Center offers a whole new way of getting answers about your breast health through a connected continuum of diagnostics, treatment, preventative care and more. If you have an abnormal mammogram or just want to get a better picture of your breast health, the breast center offers an integrated approach to care, so you can get the answers and support you need without stressful delays.
Our breast cancer specialists and surgeons closely collaborate with specialists — including oncologists, plastic surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and rehabilitation specialists — to quickly diagnose any issues, develop a plan of action and care for you.
You can also take comfort knowing that our breast care navigators will guide you through the entire process, step-by-step. They can also work with you to assess your risk and help address lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, to help reduce your risk.
The Breast Center works closely with Southcoast’s 10 digital mammography sites and three advanced diagnostic locations — all accredited as Centers of Excellence by the American College of Radiology — to give our patients comprehensive care unlike any other in our region.
Our center is also accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) for our achieving the highest standards of patient care.
Let us make your breast health a priority by helping you find a doctor who specializes in breast health. Or, schedule an appointment for your annual mammogram in Fall River, Dartmouth and Wareham, MA, as well as areas across the South Coast.
