What is a Breast Cancer Navigator?
The breast health navigator serves as a care coordinator throughout the process of a breast cancer diagnosis. The navigator assesses the physical, psychological and social needs of the patient. Our navigator works with our team of physicians, surgeons, and nurses to design a care plan with desired outcomes. She monitors the patient and triages needed services across all product or service lines while ensuring proper access to these services. The results are enhanced patient outcomes and increased satisfaction.
