About Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center
The Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center (JACBCC) delivers the most accurate prevention, early detection, diagnosis and support services available in an environment of compassionate and coordinated care. We strive to lessen the anxiety of uncertainty by providing the most rapid screening and diagnostic results possible. We provide the entire spectrum of diagnostic breast care services, including screening and diagnostic 3-D digital mammography, breast specific ultrasound with elastography, breast specific MRI, molecular breast imaging, needle localizations, image-guided biopsies, cyst and fine-needle aspirations.
We implement an interdisciplinary team approach for patients diagnosed with cancer by reviewing each case in a weekly breast care conference. The participants consist of a radiologist, pathologist, surgeon, medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, and breast health navigator. Our breast health navigator is a health care professional who provides education and support to help patients make informed and optimal decisions. The breast health navigator serves as a compassionate and knowledgeable guide, steering the newly diagnosed through an often overwhelming process. The JACBCC was founded and operates on these guiding principles:
1. The most up-to-date technology will be used to evaluate and diagnose breast disease.
2. Guidelines for patient care will meet or exceed national standards.
3. Patients will receive screening and diagnostic results in a timely and efficient manner.
4. Patients with an abnormal test result will have a navigator to guide them through the evaluation and treatment process.
5. Patients and families will receive education, support and exceptional breast care services in an environment of compassion and sensitivity.
The Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center is committed to excellence in the diagnostic process, quality patient care and optimal outcomes by combining state-of-the-art technology with an interdisciplinary team approach in a healing environment.
