Anyone knows a good breast clinic out there? - 1251228

I have been researching online a lot to find a good breast examination center. There are many of them, and each seems to say on their site that they are the best. I read about John Link. He seems to be an authority in breast cancer research. I know he works in Breast Link center, but they are located so far away from me. Anyone knows a good place for breast examination around NJ? I am willing to travel a long way, provided that the doctors are good. California is out of question, too far, even for me.

I don't know if I'm understanding your question. Mammograms are the standard breast cancer test for woman over age 40. It's done at most diagnostic centers and I don't think there's any reason to go to any place special. Here is a link to the Mayo Clinic explanation, http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/mammogram/MY00303/DSECTION=why%2Dits%2D...

If you're talking about diagnosed breast cancer and you want a breast cancer specialist they are at most larger medical centers. \

Let me know if that's helpful,

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan is world-renowned, and in the other direction the University of Pennsylvania is also terrific. They aren't the only places even in New York or Philadelphia that are very good, and then there's Johns Hopkins. There are a many extremely good breast cancer centers within 1-2 hours of any place in NJ.
