Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

Each patient has a unique condition and deserves an individualized and coordinated approach to their disease, especially if it is breast cancer. I specialize in oncoplastic approaches to breast cancer treatment and provide optimal cosmetic results. I treat the whole patient including surgery, nutrition, stress reduction, fitness and immune enhancement. I can provide high risk screening, first opinions and second (or third) opinions regarding your diagnosis and treatment. I offer appointments urgently for patients newly diagnosed with breast cancer as well as for patients with a lump or a problem found on their mammogram. I work in a coordinated Breast Care program and have the opportunity to work with extremely skilled physicians who specialize in pathology, radiology, radiation oncology and medical oncology. We provide close, team oriented care to patients in need of our services.Read more

I am thrilled to have found such a competent Dr for my surgery. Upon getting 2nd opinions I was told that if I was considering Dr Jane Kakkis that I already had the BEST Breast surgeon and to venture no further. Her Asst Mai is a pleasure, Diane her coordinating nurse is Awesome and full of information on what to expect with all procedures. Dr Reitherman is the radiologist and so calming. All together they made me feel like family. I totally recommend them all as Top Quality professionals!!
