Hi Kado, I am sorry you have been diagnosed. I wish I knew someone in Atlanta who specialized in TNBC.   I am just up the road from you in Tennessee, but I went to see Dr. Anders at University of North Carolina Lineberger Cancer Center for a third opinion.  I was very impressed with her and the facility.  Of course, it would add an additional 2.5 hours for you to drive there - I think it was a 7 hour drive for me.  I know Dr. Mayer at Vanderbilt is also a TNBC specialist- that wouldn't be so far for you to travel. Vanderbilt is right off the interstate with easy access. There is a general oncologist here in Chattanooga who is very good and goes to the San Antonio meetings every year - Dr. Larry Schlabach.  I have friends who have gone to him. One is a TNBC patient who had 5 positive nodes and is over five years out.
2.5 cm TNBC, BRCA-, diag. 2/11, neoadj chemotherapy, uni MX, y2cm,2/16 nodes, RCBII, tumor retested 5-10%ER+,PR-,Her2-, rads, clin trial eribulin 10/11-2/12, tamox.

Thank you for the quick reply. It is surprising I am having a difficult time finding one in Atlanta, but I'll definitely consider looking into the two that you suggest.  The travel wouldn't be that bad if it was the right decision to make.  Thank you very much.

For the Seattle Area:

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center / Seattle Cancer Care Alliance
has some great clincals for TNBC. We went there for a second opinion and they were great.
 
North End - Everett:
 
Oliver Batson, MD (Onc) at Providence Everett Cancer Partnership is who my mom is seeing now.
She lives really far north and can't go to Seattle every week for Chemo.
So far so good!
 
 
Mom dia 8/11 with IIb - IV by 11/11 with mets on liver. 17 rounds Taxol/Carbo then Taxotere, Cisplatin + Vinorelbine, 2 tx of Doxil, Xeloda all unsucessful. 10/12/12 Hospice @ home. Passed 11/7/12.

I would 3rd the recommendation for Dr. Ingrid Mayer at Vanderbilt (my mother-in-law) a breast cancer survivor (estrogen positive) was first diagnosed in 1978 and is still living with breast cancer. Dr. Mayer took over her care quite a few years ago. She thinks very highly of Dr. Mayer and Vanderbilt.

Kado, 

If you are close enough to Jacksonville, FL and Mayo I saw there was a recommendation from Steve for a doctor there. My mother is currently a patient at Mayo for ovarian cancer. She is having chemo locally here in south Florida but Mayo will be doing her surgery when the time comes. The local oncologist is working with Mayo.

Does anyone have recommendations for SE Michigan? I'll be happy to post mine once I am farther along and can make a proper assessment.

rmichaels:   Thank you for the additional Seattle, WA info.

FYI:    Just realized Dr Lisa Newman, Univerisity of Michigan Cancer Center has been
          mentioned on the forums. Her name will be added to update list.

Lee: Yes, there is a plan to compile this list.
          Arlene B, an administrator of the TNBC site, was willing in December to put this forum info
          on the TNBC news, resources and tips forum site.
          I took the liberty of asking Arlene B to wait until I combined the 3 sources and added
              phone numbers. And also to see if we could get as many states covered as possible.
          I will wait about one week. Then at least compile an alphabetical list from the above
          noted 3 lists.    Then when phone numbers and links are added, Arlene can move to
        TNBC news, resources and tips.

       
All:   If any one was other ideas for having an updated listed on the forum, please post.
        There still will be the matter of adding to the list. Only administrators and a few senior
        members can post on TNBC news, resources and tips.
        Maybe the master list can be there.   Maybe a forum topic can be made.......for
        "additional Oncologists recommendations". Then a senior member could add/update
        the master list.
       
All:   If any one has the current correct phone for any one already listed, please post.
        If you also have a current correct link, also post.
        (Have found some phone numbers have already changed)

There are some states that we do not have any TNBC expert MDs for.
Will be combining the above lists from the 3 different sources plus additions
as suggested.

For now, the following are the states that we do not have TNBC expert MDs for:
TNBC experts needed for the following states:
Alaska                                          
Arizona                                          
Arkansas                            
Colorado                  
Connecticut                 
Delaware                 
Georgia                         
Hawaii                         
Idaho                         
Illinois                     
Iowa                        
Kansas                     
Kentucky       
Louisiana          
Maine                     
Michigan      ( request for SE Michigan in addition to Dr Lisa Newman at U of M Cancer Center)     
Minnesota            
Mississippi              
Montana
Nebraska      
Nevada
New Hampshire                            
New Mexico
North Dakota
Oklahoma
Oregon
Rhode Island
South Carolina
South Dakota
Utah
Vermont
Virginia
West Virginia
Wisconsin
Wyoming

If any one has additional resources for states for which there are already some resources,
please feel free to add.
(Note: Prior resources from different sources. Final list will be alphabetical)
Again, will see if there are additional resources before compiling one list.

If any questions, please post.
If any state inadvertently left out, please post.

Thanks.

Kado,
    Asking for feedback from any members on the following MDs found on the Emory University
    Winship Cancer Institute site.
    Also you can ask your current oncologist about the physicians listed below and TNBC.

All,
    Does any one have any info on the following:
    Am posting with the Winship/Emory website as the source of information:

Ruth O'Regan, MD        Appointment Phone: 404-778-1900
http://winshipcancer.emory.edu/find-a-physician/WinshipContentPage.aspx?nd=807&id=268&typ=33

http://winshipcancer.emory.edu/find-a-physician/WinshipContentPage.aspx?nd=807&id=1124&typ=33
The above link shows she has interest in TNBC and PubMed link shows she has articles on
breast cancer.

Sujatha Dhillon, MD      Appointment Phone:    404-778-1900
http://winshipcancer.emory.edu/find-a-physician/WinshipContentPage.aspx?nd=807&id=1460&typ=33
The above link states research interest in TNBC. (Did not find PubMed link on her site)

Let's see what others may post.

Lots of good and positive thoughts as you research your treatment team and plan.

Thank you all.  I am going to try to get an appointment with Dr. Regan, Zelnak or Dhillon at Winship/Emory.  I'll definitely also consider Dr. Mayer at Vanderbuilt (even if it is just for a second opinion).  Possibly the others as well.  I also heard from a friend about Dr. Bowen at Georgia Cancer Specialists.  I will post again after I've had experience with any of them, for a recommendation. Thank you for all the help.

Hi,

Vikkie posted on another forum today:
http://forum.tnbcfoundation.org/new-lump-in-upperchest-area_topic9463.html
"I would like to get a 2nd opinion from another treatment center, either Fox Chase or Abramson Center (Penn Hosp.) both in Philadelphia. Does anyone know of any Med. Oncologist(s) at these centers, with expertise in treating TNBC patients?    Thanks for your anticipated responses.      Vikkie "

To start.........
Fox Chase:
   Dr. Massimo Cristofanilli has been mentioned several times on the forums as
       an IBC (Inflammatory Breast Cancer) expert.
   Will someone else f/u if he would be someone to see for Vikkie's 2nd opinion?
   ? other TNBC experts at Fox Chase.
Abramson Center   ( Penn Hosp):
    On TNBC Oncologists recommendations forum........ Susan Domchek MD was listed for PA.
    Can any one add any information about her....or other TNBC expert at Abramson.

Thanks.

Grateful for today..............Judy

VIkkie,

Do I have a red face or what?

Was googling and just saw that Susan Domchek, MD is on the medical advisory board of the
TNBC Foundation!    That sure sounds like a good recommendation to me.

Kado - I am in the Atlanta area and while my onc does not specialize in TNBC, he considers Dr. Ruth O'Regan the leading doctor for it in Atlanta. He considers Dr. Lisa Carey THE expert on TNBC and I went to see her for a second opinion in 2010 and 2011. He consults regularly with both.

Hope that helps and I wish you all the best!

When one is looking for oncologists knowledgeable about TNBC, there are various resources.

What is posted here is informational (general information) from members.

These are not recommendations from the TNBC Foundation.

The decision about your treatment team is yours.





Some things to consider when gathering information for your TNBC treatment team.



1. Check if there is a NCCN (National Comprehensive Cancer Network) Cancer Center      

          https://www.nccn.org/members/network.asp in your area.



2. Check if there is a NCI (National Cancer Institute) Cancer Center in your area.

     For appointments at a NCI Center, ask for the TNBC oncologist.

       http://www.cancer.gov/researchandfunding/extramural/cancercenters

       http://www.cancer.gov/researchandfunding/extramural/cancercenters/find-a-cancer-center



3. Some members have 2nd opinions when making decisions on their treatment plan.

     2nd opinions for any/all parts (chemo-surgery-radiation) of the treatment plan (when indicated).

     If one's pathology report was not done by a breast pathologist, a pathology 2nd opinion by

     by a breast pathologist (at a NCCN or NCI center if possible) is something to strongly consider.



4. Some members have a local oncologist and have a consult with a NCCN/NCI oncologist.

    Then re-consult (2nd opinion) with the NCCN/NCI oncologist if needs arises

    (when frequent travel to a NCCN or NCI center is an issue)



5. The physicians on the TNBC Foundation Scientific Advisory Board are listed at:

        http://www.tnbcfoundation.org/ourpeople.htm



6. Some members newly diagnosed will post on this forum topic/thread asking for information

     about resources in their area. Some members will start a new forum/thread with a title

     like: Looking for TNBC MDs in the _________ area.



7. Start to obtain your reports (labs/imaging/xrays/consults/pathology reports etc) and organize your

     own personal medical record.







In addition to the above, some considerations/information from members from recent posts are:

(Physicians are medical oncologists unless noted otherwise)

I am very sad to say that Dr. Sledge is leaving Indiana University. He will be starting at Stanford in January 2013. Great news for the west coast girls but not for us in the Midwest :(

Dr. Eric M. Feldman at Group Health in Downtown Seattle was amazing.
I wish we would have found him sooner.
He is double board cert in Onc and Internal Med.
