Southwest Georgia’s Breast Cancer Nurse Navigator

Breast cancer patients often have a confusing road ahead of them after diagnosis. Our nurse navigator guides them through it all. A nurse navigator coordinates care among the patient’s physicians, helps the patient identify problem areas, makes appropriate referrals, and aids in pre and post surgical options and education.

  • Monitor ongoing needs of the patient to ensure efficient and effective access to services
  • Provide coordination of care between primary care physician and all health care providers
