Breaking barriers

Indianapolis breast surgeon Robert Goulet Jr., M.D., and nurse navigator with patientWhen it comes to breast care health, one of the major barriers women face is inconvenient hours. Standard hours of operation aren’t convenient for women who work outside the home or stay-at-home moms with young children. That’s why Community Breast Care East is open from 12 to 8 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month—a first in the Indianapolis marketplace.

“Our program is a full-service program, which means that the services patients receive at 8 o’clock at night would be the same services they would receive at 9 o’clock in the morning,” Goulet said. “And that includes the amenities, such as free valet parking for patients.

Coordinated, cutting-edge care

Community Breast Care breast navigatorsOne of the key components of the program for breast cancer patients is the nurse navigator. Patients with breast cancer have a team of specialists helping them—medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists and plastic surgeons. The nurse navigator is that constant companion who guides the patient through the process, ensuring everything is completed, goes smoothly and that the patient’s questions are addressed.

Commitment to excellence

Community Breast Care is the first comprehensive health network in Indiana to earn full accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. Community has an institutional commitment to excellence, innovation and education. “It’s more than just words,” Goulet said. “It is truly a commitment to the women that we serve here in Indianapolis and the surrounding areas.

That commitment filters down to the other members of the breast team, all of whom are involved in research with different institutions. “For us, it’s not just getting up in the morning, coming into the office and then going home at night,” Goulet said. “It’s a full-time commitment.”
