A Message from Dr. Wachsmuth
"I feel it is important that patients are presented with all necessary information and options for treatment, but they also often need someone to hold their hand and provide reassurance. We believe that emotional support is an important part of breast cancer treatment, and each patient becomes a part of our Georgia Breast Care family. That’s our philosophy, and we will continue to take care of women – from diagnosis through treatment and beyond – to free them from this disease".
