Are you doing everything you can to keep your breasts healthy? If this question gives you pause, you’re not alone! In the US this year, more than 40,000 women will die from breast cancer.

A general surgeon by training, Dr. West became fascinated with the multi-disciplinary team approach to breast cancer care in the mid- 1980’s, which led him in 1988, to open Orange County’s first breast care center that practiced the team approach to the care of patients with breast problems.
