Meet Our Breast Care Team
You are not alone. Our team is there with you.
The team-oriented design of the SMHC Center for Breast Care enhances communication between the primary care physician, the radiologist, the surgeon, the medical oncologist, and the radation oncologist – all with the patient at the center of the care circle. We’re with you each step of the way.
Helene Langley, RN, BS, CBCN, CN-BN Certified Breast Nurse Navigator
Women told us they wanted a guide; someone compassionate enough to understand the physical and emotional issues and experienced enough to guide each patient on their way toward survivorship. Helene, SMHC’s Certified Patient Navigator, fills that role for you and your family. Whether concerns originate with a lump felt by a woman or her physician or from a suspicious finding as a result of a screening mammogram, Helene is your personal guide for communication with the healthcare team and the family, from diagnosis, surgery, reconstruction, after-care and survival. Our full breast care team, coordinated through Helene, is with you every step of the way. Contact: (207) 283-7805
