Breast Care Staff

Your Breast Care Center experience starts with a mammography technologist, who will perform your screening or diagnostic 

mammogram. Radiologists read the mammograms, and if you need a biopsy, a surgeon or radiologist will perform the procedure. 

Patients who are diagnosed with cancer meet with cancer specialists who will determine a course of treatment. As part of the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Network, Community Memorial Hospital offers comprehensive expertise and care coordination right here at our hospital.

Community Memorial Hospital holds a twice-monthly, multidisciplinary breast cancer conference. During these conferences, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, a genetic counselor, registered dietitians, pathologists, radiologists and nurses meet to discuss most breast cancer cases to determine the best course of treatment for patients.

Breast Care Coordinator

Throughout the diagnosis and treatment process, our breast care coordinator, who is certified in breast care and oncology, ensures there is a seamless transition between staff and physicians.

The breast care coordinator connects patients with the appropriate cancer physicians, stays with them during their breast biopsy, follows up after they receive results, and provides them with educational information about breast cancer. 

She also makes sure they know about the special services we offer patients, including the Breast Cancer Support Group and Look Good, Feel Better.
