Hi everyone. It's been a while for me, but I need a little help. I've moved to the Ft. Worth area of Texas. I'll likely be living south of the city but I need to get a recommendation for an Oncologist. I'm especially looking for one with TNBC experience. Can anyone advise?
 
Thanks!

Joyce A. O’Shaughnessy, M.D. specializes in medical oncology with board certification in both internal medicine as well as medical oncology. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine with subspecialty certification in medical oncology. Dr. O’Shaughnessy focuses on breast cancer prevention and treatment. She is Co-Chair of Breast Cancer Research and Chair of Breast Cancer Prevention Research at Baylor-Sammons Cancer Center and for The US Oncology Network and is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board for US Oncology Research Network.

Another recommendation, but in the Houston area.

Dr. Matthew Ellis recently relocated to Houston, Texas as 
the new director of the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine.
