Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Templeton "Breast Care for Life is about improving the survivability of breast cancer both before and after a cancer diagnosis. It is the understanding and monitoring your individual risk level, finding abnormalities as early as possible, receiving a timely cancer diagnosis, providing expert surgical treatment, and monitoring you after cancer treatment is complete. Cancer treatment coordinates advanced surgical techniques used to remove your tumor along with coordinated treatment of chemotherapy, radiation and hormone blocking that is customized for the type and extent of your cancer.

Whether you've been diagnosed with breast cancer, have an abnormal mammogram, recently discovered a lump or simply need a second opinion,  We provide exceptional detection, surgical treatment and personaizedl follow-up. We promote breast health for life, your life and your future."
