Interview offers look at New York's Dubin Breast Center

Gotham published an interview this week with Eva Andersson-Dubin, MD, and Elisa Port, MD, of the Dubin Breast Center of the Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, N.Y.

Andersson-Dubin founded the Dubin Breast Center with her husband, Glenn Dubin, five years ago. She is a breast cancer survivor herself, and told  Gotham that one of her goals was to make center much more intimate and patient-friendly than some other facilities.

“Breast cancer is unique because there are so many specialties involved—you need a surgeon, radiologist, oncologist, plastic surgeon, pathologist, a geneticist, etc,” Andersson-Dubin said. “When you come in, for example, with a lump in your breast, I wanted it so that the surgeon could immediately take your hand and walk you over to radiology, do an image, and decide whether you need a biopsy, and if you do, have the biopsy right then. It eliminates all the extra appointments, extra waiting, and extra anxiety.”
