Michigan

 Internationally renowned breast cancer surgeon Lisa A. Newman, M.D., MPH, has joined Henry Ford Health System to lead its metro Detroit breast cancer program and new international breast cancer research center.

She begins work this month as the director of the Breast Cancer Program at Henry Ford.

Dr. Newman comes to Henry Ford from the University of Michigan Health System, bringing with her two colleagues from U-M, and one from Moffitt Cancer Center, to join Henry Ford’s nationally recognized breast cancer team.

I was diagnosed in September 2015, de novo stage IV triple negative (one met to liver) and am finishing my third month of Paclitaxel. I too am looking to identify experts in metastatic TNBC who are based in the Northeast. Dr. Winer at Dana Farber wasn't taking new patients when I called in September. Any suggestions? I am being given the standard of care right now, and really want to make sure the next steps we take are well informed and based on the latest research and treatment options.

In North Texas UT Southwestern Simmons Cancer Center continues to reign supreme, with MD Anderson in Houston being the best in Texas (and the world).

Dr. Vincente Valero at MD Anderson is mentioned several times here for IBC, but he is also an expert on TNBC and HER2+ as well.  He's awesome professionally, and personally!

Dallas, TX - at UT Southwestern (since my docs mentioned years ago are gone now)
Surgical Oncology - Dr. Marilyn Leitch - head of the dept. of Surgical Breast Oncology - she's a rockstar
Medical Oncology - Dr. Nisha Unni - Gifted Dr. and so supportive!
Radiation Oncology - Dr. Ann Spangler - She's still my husbands favorite Dr. I've had all these years.  She's wicked smart, always on top of all the latest and greatest treatments and trials available.
Wound Care Specialist - Dr. Jean de Leon - currently my favorite Dr. in the world :) she blew my mind the way she healed my wounds in 6 weeks, after 8 months of all my other Dr.'s trying.  When I think of "Healer" I think of her - Love Her Dearly. If your wounds take even ONE WEEK longer than they are supposed to for healing, demand an appointment with her - it makes her sad when someone has suffered for months needlessly, she WANTS to get her hands on you early if you have any healing issues at all. I have zero lymph nodes left on the left side and had 3 removed on the right - making me compromised in both arms.  Now that I've seen her, when I hurt my arms or hands I take a pic of the wound and email it to her, she answers me on how to proceed with care, or tells me to come on in that day for her to check it.  She's my anti-lymphadema weapon now Heart
Gynecology - In case you are changing all your Dr.s to UT, Dr. Karen Bradshaw, she's the medical director of the Dept. of OB GYN and specializes in 40+ year old women, "disorders affecting the mature woman, Menopausal symptoms, post-menopausal, mood disorders and preventative bone loss treatment"  Yep, she's tailor made for the post TNBC treatment woman!  She cracks me up every time I see her.  Another very smart Dr. with loads of experience.  
IDC, 2.2 cm, Stage IIb,lumpectomy 1/30/09 ACx4,Tx4 36 rads
6/1/17 Local recurrence same breast, same spot 1.8cm Carb.4x every 3 wks, Taxol 12x once wk. Dbl Mast. PCR!! Reconstruction fail, NED!
