Message from the Medical Lead

Welcome to the CIBC Breast Assessment Centre — built on a vision to provide high quality and efficient care for all individuals with breast concerns. The beautiful, welcoming architecture and design of this breast centre provides a calming, welcoming environment for visitors. The Centre provides comprehensive screening and diagnostic services with access to surgical consultation and further treatment triage as needed. The Centre is an accredited site for the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) including high-risk screening.

Our multidisciplinary team of experts includes dedicated, subspecialty-focused radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, oncologists and genetic counsellors. Our  team  includes technologists, nurse navigators, booking clerks, film library staff, front desk receptionists and volunteers who are all integral to the delivery of care. All patients that undergo biopsy are discussed in multidisciplinary weekly rounds which aim to provide high-quality care and create an excellent learning environment for our learners. Continuous quality improvement is an integral part of our commitment to excellence. I am very proud of our team.

–Dr. Kavita Dhamanaskar
