The Weill Cornell Breast Center offers comprehensive and integrated services for people with breast cancer of all stages. Our mission is to provide up-to-date and personalized breast cancer care in a relaxed environment. We care for patients with newly diagnosed breast cancer and those undergoing active treatment. We also provide follow-up care for patients with a history of breast cancer, as well as those who are at increased risk for the disease due to personal or family histories. Our services include:
Our doctors are medical oncologists who specialize in breast cancer treatment. As faculty members of Weill Cornell Medical College and attending physicians at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, our physicians are active in teaching and research as well as patient care. We hold multidisciplinary conferences on a weekly basis to coordinate and tailor individualized treatment programs.
Our infusion center features comfortable, semi-private units bathed in natural light. Each patient also has a personal television and wireless Internet access. Our nurses and on-site pharmacist perform quality assessment checks for every dose of chemotherapy administered. Our pharmacist is readily available to answer questions about issues such as drug interactions and side effects.
Integrative Medicine and Nutritional Guidance
We offer complementary therapies–such as guided imagery, therapeutic touch, progressive relaxation, and aromatherapy–to help manage symptoms. Consultations with a registered dietitian are available for guidance regarding nutritional issues and weight gain during treatment and beyond.
Our Survivorship Program sponsors educational seminars and an annual luncheon to learn about advances in breast cancer care and related topics.
We’re Part of the Weill Cornell Family
Women being treated at the Breast Center have access to the world-class care available through NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Our staff will gladly help coordinate referrals.
Insurance and Financial Services
Most of our physicians accept major forms of medical insurance. Once your doctor outlines your treatment plan, our account administrators can help you with any insurance and financial issues, such as verifying insurance coverage, obtaining authorizations, planning for out-of-pocket expenses, and setting up a payment plan if needed.
