Suzanne Dintzis, MD, PhD

Dr. Dintzis is a breast pathologist.

Patient Care Philosophy:

An accurate diagnosis is critical to establishing an effective treatment plan for patients. Nowhere is this more apparent than in breast pathology today. With treatment protocols for breast cancer dependent upon specific characteristics demonstrating the expression of hormone receptors and the Her2 oncoprotein, it is imperative that an accurate pathology-based work-up of breast cancer is provided to help decide appropriate treatment options. Additionally we understand the patient anxiety related to waiting for a pathology result and have a goal of rapid turnaround times to limit this time of uncertainty.
