Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Adelson "I am a medical oncologist specializing in breast cancer medicine. My clinical practice is dedicated to treating all aspects of breast cancer including: breast cancer prevention in women at high risk for breast cancer, management of ductal carcinoma in situ, adjuvant (post-operative treatment) and neo-adjuvant (pre-operative) treatment of invasive breast cancer, and management of advanced stage disease. While focused on giving state-of-the art breast cancer care, I am also very sensitive to the intense psychological stress my patients experience with a breast cancer diagnosis."
