Breast Health Navigator

If you need a follow-up mammogram, our breast health navigator can help you:

  • Understand your screening mammogram results
  • Help you schedule another mammogram, access, and coordinate care if your screening mammogram is inconclusive
  • Provide emotional support for you and your family
  • Provide information and guidance to social services in the community

We are ready to assist you!

I am in treatment today because Maria, my breast health navigator, cared about me. She consistently followed up with me and guided me. I am thankful for you.Patient Testimonial
