“I sing the praises of CHA and the Cambridge Breast Center everyday. It’s not just a 15 minute appointment; it’s however long it takes to evaluate my concerns. I’ve had long blonde hair, I’ve had no hair and they always make me feel welcomed and beautiful.

Even when I’m not coming in to see Denise, she pulls me aside and wants to know how I’m doing. She listens with her heart.”

"It was my 49th birthday when I found a lump in my breast. My initial reaction was dread, I truly thought the worst. Immediately I contacted my primary care physician who in turn contacted the Cambridge Breast Center. I assumed it would take time to get an appointment and I would be in for a long wait. But I was wrong, their response was immediate. They had me come in right away, and from the moment I walked through the door, throughout the entire process, every staff member treated me with caring, kindness, concern and respect.

These people had never met me before, but they clearly cared about me and wanted to help. They shepherded me through the entire process and gave me reassurance every step of the way.   

Fortunately, it turned out to not be cancer. But even in my situation I knew that the Cambridge Breast Center staff really get it. They understand all the fear and anxiety women have during a visit and they do everything they can to alleviate those fears. They just truly get it."
