Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lundgren ""I understand that women can't stop their lives. They take care of their families first, and themselves second. My goal is to determine whether a patient has breast cancer, then work with the patient to chart an individualized treatment plan. I see my patients as mothers, wives, daughters, employees and church members. I feel it is my duty to get patients into treatment and back to their roles quickly.""
