The UHS Breast Center at Vestal offers private waiting rooms for each patient. And through our unique “Pearls of Wisdom”
program patients receive a free, sterling, freshwater pearl necklace at
their first mammogram at the center. At each annual mammogram
thereafter they receive another pearl to add to their necklace.
Should you need it, you can be assured that UHS has a complete cancer
program, including medical and surgical oncology and radiation.
Nutrition counseling, social services and emotional support are
available to you and your loved ones.
But most important, Breast Center patients get personal service. If a
patient’s mammogram shows an abnormality, Breast Center program manager
Susan Kost, RN, contacts the patient to explain the findings, options
and next steps. From this point forward Kost remains in contact with the
patient and her physician, assisting with specialist appointments,
arranging additional testing, and providing counseling and education.
Patients diagnosed with cancer will find that UHS is a leading provider of oncology care, offering a comprehensive cancer program
that was recently given an Outstanding Achievement Award from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
If you are unsure of how to perform a self breast exam, you may want to consult our breast cancer information
, breast health videos
and breast health library
, in addition to asking your health care provider to explain the procedure to you.
