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.Read more

in Westminster, CO |
Highly, Highly recommend Dr. Tynan!! Excellent Dr. Gave me all my options and then supported my choice. Excellent surgery experience. Very proactive and offered great preventative education before surgery to prevent problems after surgery. My scars look excellent and have even had other doctors comment on how good the outcome. Also very nice aftercare. Lots of great, well organized, information provided. Office staff is wonderful!!

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.
