Comprehensive Breast Center
BREAST CARE CLINIC
Every Wednesday morning, the staff of The Comprehensive Breast Center provide diagnostic and treatment services at Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospital's Breast Care Clinic on the Upper West Side at West 114th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. In addition to a careful review of each patient's medical history and available mammograms, the attending breast surgeon performs a comprehensive breast examination and when necessary, breast ultrasound, fine needle aspiration and core biopsy. A handheld ultrasound device allows image-guided fine needle aspiration or core biopsy for the evaluation of suspicious lumps or calcifications. Surgeries are either performed at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s or Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospitals. Genetic counseling service is also available at the clinic. We are very proud of the standard of care provided in the Breast Care Clinic. Patients receive as high-quality and excellent breast care as one might expect in the private offices. Both facilities are staffed by the same dedicated team of nurses, physician assistants and breast surgeons. However, one advantage of the Breast Care Clinic is the support provided by a Spanish-speaking volunteer, a cancer survivor who provides translation, counseling and reassurance.
