I love Dr. Washburn. she takes her time and explains everything to you. no rush or anything. She explains it all and doesn't alarm you by the way she does talks to you. I am so glad she was recommended to me, especially after my very last time with cancer and had a horrible expericence with my surgeon then. i can not thank her enough.

This is an amazing doctor. She is both competent and compassionate- a combination rarely found these days. I went in for a biopsy. She was reassuring and listened to my concerns without judgement. She understood why I was frightened (family history breast ca). She spoke right on my level and didn't talk over my head. Highly recommend her-Best doc ever.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer on February 3rd, 2014. Dr. Washburn had done my mammogram, ultrasound and a biopsy in her office the Thursday before I found out the devastating news. She is one of the kindest and caring doctors I know! She doesn't rush you in and out, she takes the time to slowly explain this life changing event in your life. Her office staff had a game plan for my specific case. Would recommend her to anyone facing a cancer diagnosis!
