Our Breast Health Services bring together a highly specialized team dedicated to providing you with comprehensive screening and diagnostic capabilities, and advanced treatment for breast cancer and routine breast care.
Shellie Campos, NP discusses how early detection of breast cancer saves lives and facilitates treatment options.
John Muir Health uses a multidisciplinary approach to tackle complex and difficult breast cancer cases. Our tumor boards consist of experienced breast surgeons, plastic surgeons (available by referral), gynecologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, genetic counselors, nurse practitioners, a nurse navigator, and a patient care coordinator who focus their efforts to design individualized treatment plans that will improve outcomes for each patient. We work with you to get the treatment and resources you need to help you get well again.
John Muir Health is one of four institutions nationwide to be recognized as a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence by the National Consortium of Breast Cancers and has been accredited by the American College of Surgeons/Commission on Cancer as a Nationally Accredited Program of Breast Centers (NAPBC) continuously since 2010.

All in one day. All in one place.

Our multidisciplinary cancer clinic is designed to evaluate patients with diagnosed breast cancer in a comprehensive, single-day setting to minimize the time between diagnosis and treatment.

The team approach saves you and your family the anxiety and uncertainty of waiting days and weeks between individual appointments. This single day setting minimizes the time between diagnosis and treatment. It lets you focus your energy on what’s important: getting well.
