      I have been loyal to Avista Hospital for years. My screening mammography led to an ultrasound guided biopsy, which ultimately required surgical consultation. I was told about 3 surgeons at Avista who do breast cases. I chose Dr. Tynan for obvious reasons that I wanted woman, and she only does breast. She is meticulous and kind. Her staff is excellent. The day of surgery was scary, but the staff throughout the whole process was extremely supportive. I highly recommend.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Tynan's Care Philosophy

      As a woman I empathize with the personal and emotional components of a breast cancer diagnosis. I strive to tailor an individualized treatment plan for each patient based on national guidelines and taking into account their particular pathology, anatomy and personal wishes. I also treat benign breast disease and assess patients at high risk of developing breast cancer.
