Dr. Wendy Wang, MD - Breast Cancer Treatment at The Everett Clinic

Dr. Wendy Wang, MD is a practicing Medical Oncologist at The Everett Clinic.

Breast cancer management involves a multidisciplinary approach, so we try to get all of the specialists, the medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, surgical oncologist on board. So we have a consensus on the treatment plan. This is standard practice in cancer treatment centers.

At each conference, we discuss all the newly diagnosed breast cancer cases. We go over their imaging studies, like mammogram, MRI, ultrasound. The pathologist will present the slides, the final diagnosis, and the surgical oncologist will discuss the surgical plan; the medical oncologist will talk about the need for chemotherapy, or no need for chemo; and the radiation oncologist will talk about the need for radiation. So we're all on the same page at the time of diagnosis.
