When it comes to breast health, every woman deserves the very best care possible. Tri-County Health Care's breast navigator is dedicated to supporting you and your family and walking you through the entire process from screening through treatment, if needed.
What is a breast navigator?
A breast navigator is your point-of-contact for any questions or concerns related to breast health. Her expertise ranges from knowing treatment options and how a cancer diagnosis impacts finances to knowing how to help you cope with your journey and meet your physical, emotional, and social needs.
What does a breast navigator do?
Our breast navigator's focus is on the patient and family or support members. She will give you reassuring guidance throughout the treatment process and provide you with information and education, help you understand your treatment options, and empower you to be an active participant and advocate in your care and treatment. Throughout treatment, she is the main contact person for you and all of the health professionals involved in your care.
If you need an MRI or a stereotactic biopsy, the breast navigator will work closely with Tri-County Health Care's surgical providers and their nurses to schedule consults, biopsies and follow-up appointments. If you desire, the breast navigator will go with you to the breast biopsy, offer support, and assist as needed. The breast navigator will follow up with patients that are due for follow-up imaging (3-6 month, etc.) or office visits, and will provide ongoing support for the diagnostic breast patient.
