Dealing with breast cancer can be an emotionally personal as well as physically challenging time. At Northern Light Breast Care, we understand, and we’re here for you with the most comprehensive care, personalized to your specific needs, delivered by an expert, compassionate staff. We also understand that when it comes to breast surgery, less is more, and we strive to provide the least invasive procedures whenever possible.
What sets us apart?
- We deliver excellent care - Our breast cancer treatment program is nationally accredited, with an integrated approach to breast care. We have a team of highly-skilled specialists — including many female physicians — devoted to this type of cancer.
- We focus on preventive care - We understand that patients want to avoid breast surgery if at all possible. That’s why our breast cancer treatment program focuses on early detection and prevention.
- Breast surgery - Often, surgery is medically necessary to deal with your condition. At Northern Light Breast Care, we’re mindful of the personal nature of this type of surgery and make every effort to make that procedure as minimally invasive as possible. Our breast treatment is comprehensive, so no matter what type of procedure you need — biopsy, mastectomy, reconstruction, or any other — we’re here for you.
- Compassionate care with Nurse Navigators - A Nurse Navigator is assigned to each patient, to help guide you through what might otherwise seem like an overwhelming life event. Nurse Navigators are there for you, helping you understand the procedures, answering questions, coordinating care between visits, and walking you through your personalized treatment plan every step of the way.

*Important: Screening mammograms are suitable for regular check-ups, when you have no visible or recognizable symptoms such as, a lump, pain, swelling, discharge, or changes in the size of your breast.
Screening mammograms are not the same test as a diagnostic mammogram. If you have been told that you need a diagnostic mammogram, have a history of breast cancer, or have breast implants, please speak with your primary care provider before scheduling your test to ensure you get the test that meets your needs.
