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!
