Hi, I am newly diagnosed and checking out my options for treatment. I have not yet been staged but since it is invasive and on the large side it will not be a low stage. I would like to find someone who is especially recommended for treating TNBC and I am not sure how to find someone who has a better success rate with TNBC. Any ideas greatly appreciated! Thanks

PNWgardener,

Where are you located?  There are many good breast oncologists.  We had a thread talking about recommendations from members.  It hasn't been update lately, but maybe you can check for recommendations in your state.  Another good alternative is to check out the NCCN institutions.

123Donna, thanks! I am in Oregon. I did a quick look at the thread and saw that the thread was still looking for Oregon recommendations. Since there are some in the Seattle area I may be able to get some information from them about the Portland area.
