This content was provided by Dr. Alfonse "As a fellowship trained breast surgeon, I focus my practice on the diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant breast disease. Rather than saying, "I treat breast disease," I say that "I take care of people with breast disease." I try to create a feeling of trust, give patients the knowledge they need to understand their own condition, and develop a plan that gives them hope. My passion is to make the experience of breast cancer as tolerable as possible. I do not merely care for cancer - or breasts. I take care of the whole person who happens to have been diagnosed with these problems. Incorporating a patients family "team" members, personal beliefs and history are a vital part of their treatment and overall success."
