Welcome to Breast Center at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital
At the Breast Center at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital, we are committed to providing patients with individualized, comprehensive, compassionate breast and breast cancer care. Here patients will find a supportive, positive environment featuring the latest diagnostic technology and clinical services, as well as expedited appointments and results.
Our multidisciplinary team approach to care gives patients access to the area’s top breast cancer experts—experts who work together to provide the best possible treatment options for each specific case—all in one location. This team includes medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, breast surgeons, radiation oncologists, and genetic counselors as well as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and registered nurses with additional training in oncology.
Our specialists also see patients requesting a second opinion within 48 hours, Monday through Friday. They may confirm what a patient has already been told, provide additional treatment options, or even provide more details about the type and stage of breast cancer.
In addition, because breast cancer is more treatable when it is detected early, we provide free mammograms, clinical breast exams, and pap tests for women with limited incomes who are 40 years of age or older, uninsured, or underinsured, and a resident of the Baltimore metropolitan area through our Breast and Cervical Cancer Program.
