The doctors, nurses and other providers at OHSU’s breast cancer clinic are committed to giving you the best-possible outcome.
- Our doctors meet weekly and at the clinic to combine expertise for each patient. Unlike at other hospitals, they go over your scans and test results together before your first appointment. When you meet them, they're already familiar with your case and prepared to discuss recommendations.
- Our nurse navigator coordinates your appointments and serves as your guide through treatment.
- Each of our providers has deep interest and expertise in treating patients with breast cancer. Our breast cancer surgeons all completed advanced training at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, one of the nation's top cancer hospitals.
- Our care options include complementary medicine and survivorship services to ensure that your health and well-being are supported at every step.
