Accepting new patients

I have had the great fortune of training and practicing surgery in King County for over 40 years. I have specialized in breast surgery since completing a fellowship in 1987. I am a former principal investigator for the NSABP. I have participated in clinical trials for the treatment and prevention of breast cancer. I am of the generation of doctors that is mission driven. I am a member of The Society of Surgical Oncology, The American Society of Breast Surgery, and the American Society of Breast Disease.

Care Philosophy

Breast cancer treatment is multidisciplinary.  The doctors must function together as an integrated team.  Educating patients about the biology of their disease, treatment options, and sequence of treatment is critical.

Patient Comments (3)
Bellevue, WA |
Dr. Clarfeld was absolutely wonderful. I knew I was in good hands after meeting with him several times. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family who might need a breast surgeon,
in Seattle, WA |
At age 52, 8 years ago, I faced the choice between a partial vs full breast removal to begin my treatment of breast cancer. I sought the best medical practitioners and found them! Dr Clarfeld not only put me at ease and answered my 10 million questions. He was quite helpful as I grappled with life changing options. His lumpectomy and diagnostic lymph node removal, was the best I could have hoped for. Healing was quick and easy with no side effects. Scarring and adhesions were very minimal.

He came highly recommended to me from my most trusted, long time, physician. Thank God I found him. He is the best. If you are lucky enough to have him as your breast surgeon, feel blessed.
