Breast Health Program

The Breast Health Program at the Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center is a comprehensive state-of-the-art treatment program offering a full spectrum of clinical and support services, from screening and diagnosis to treatment and counseling. From prevention to early diagnosis to control of advanced disease, we have the knowledge, expertise, technology and compassion to help you achieve the highest quality in breast care.
 
The Breast Health Center is a participant in the National Consortium of Breast Center's National Quality Measures for Breast Center Program. Data from services are compared to other breast centers across the nation. The goal is to continue to improve and achieve the highest ratings possible.
 
Our goal is to offer easy access to the most advanced, current breast health care in the Pomona / Inland Valley as well as compassion and knowledge in caring for the whole person.
