New predictive tool for assessing #breastcancerrisk https://goo.gl/P3TmhY

Women were five times as likely to develop cancer if they had a higher percentage of Ki67, a molecular marker that identifies proliferating cells, in the cells that line the mammary ducts and milk-producing lobules, researchers have shown. These cells, called the mammary epithelium, undergo drastic changes throughout a woman's life, and the majority of breast cancers originate in these tissues.

I have never been to a more inviting office with knowledgeable staff and doctor. Dr. Alexander explains everything clearly and with easy understanding. I couldn't be happier to have found this office.

Dr. Alexander is very proactive and attentive to any concerns I have. The office staff is also easy to work with and discuss billing with. In the few years I've been a patient here there was only one concern over insurance being denied for pre-approval for a surgery that delayed the procedure. This was resolved and has not negatively affected our relationship in anyway. She is definitely a standout doctor in her field, and I have recommended her to friends.

Dr. Alexander has been a very excellent doctor. She takes the time to explain and is concerned about my well being. She is very passionate and knowledgeable. She always seems to follow up and ready to speak with me on the phone. She is the best. The staff is also pleasant and kind. Very professional setting.

I have been going to Dr. Alexander for 10 years. She is kind, caring, patient with questions, and best of all, she knows and remembers my history. I trust her for now and in the future.

I got really good care. I even moved far way from this location and decided to come back to this doctor so care comes first.
