Our patients also benefit from an adjacent advanced imaging center that provides dedicated breast MRI evaluation.
Birmingham Breast Cares top priority is providing a diagnosis during the patients first visit. As part of our unique approach to timely and efficient patient care, we offer same day diagnosis (via frozen section evaluation by pathology) and treatment counseling to our patients when appropriate.

Our caring and compassionate staff strives to give our patients emotional support, and a patient navigator is available to assist patients through the treatment process.

Although not required, the ideal candidate would have completed an ASBS/SSO/ASBD-approved breast fellowship training program. If selected, you will benefit from a close working relationship with a surgeon with over two decades of experience, who can provide teaching and supervision of percutaneous breast techniques.
We are looking for a surgeon who shares our philosophy of caring for patients body, mind, and spirit. We look forward to reviewing your curriculum vitae and talking with you about what you are looking for in a new practice.
