Our Philosophy
Theresa Cavins, MD Surgery  • Medical Director Breast Care Services
Dr. Theresa CavinsWe are committed to providing the most advanced, total breast care for all patients with breast health concerns, particularly those with newly discovered abnormalities on mammography and physical exam.

The treatment of breast disease requires a team approach. That team includes the patient and surgeon, the radiologist who reads the mammogram, and many times, a radiation oncologist, a medical oncologist, specially trained nursing staff, and sometimes, counseling professionals and plastic surgeons.

There may be several options for the diagnosis and treatment of your breast problem. This will be discussed with you and your family so that you can take an active role in deciding what works best for you.

We are continually working toward decreasing the time between finding a palpable breast mass or having an abnormal mammogram and arriving at a definitive diagnosis. Once a diagnosis of breast cancer is made, you will have the opportunity to be seen by several members of the team, and an individual treatment plan will be developed.

We feel that education is the key to reducing the stress and anxiety associated with having a breast cancer diagnosis. We think the team centered approach facilitates a seamless treatment experience for patients and their families.

We feel privileged to participate in the care of patients in our community. We are dedicated to providing up-to-date, state of the art breast care. We hope that by achieving this goal, we can foster the healing process in each person we treat.
