Anne Moore, M.D.
It is a privilege to take care of patients with breast cancer. Each patient is different, each breast cancer is different and treatment recommendations are tailored to the individual patient. At the Weill Cornell Breast Center, we work as a team to recommend the optimal treatment plan for each patient. We meet with our pathologists, surgeons and plastic surgeons, diagnostic radiologists, radiation oncologists, and geneticists through our tumor board and conferences to consider every aspect of the case. The medical oncology group of doctors, nurses, pharmacist, and nutritionist interact on a daily basis to ensure the best plan of care. We have begun a new initiative, a "survivorship" program to study and support our patients throughout their lifetime after a breast cancer diagnosis. It is exciting to be in the forefront of breast cancer research not only with our own group at the Breast Center but also as part of the exciting research going on across the nation. Every year brings advances in this field. I am very happy to be part of it!
