“The Ben Taub Breast Oncology Clinic is staffed by full-time Baylor faculty members,” said Rimawi. “We are fortunate to work with an excellent nursing staff provided by Harris County and in partnership with our colleagues from other specialties like surgery, radiology and radiation oncology.”


“The Ben Taub Breast Oncology Clinic is staffed by full-time Baylor faculty members,” said Rimawi. “We are fortunate to work with an excellent nursing staff provided by Harris County and in partnership with our colleagues from other specialties like surgery, radiology and radiation oncology.”

Three clinics operate through Ben Taub, each on a different day: the breast oncology clinic, breast prevention and genetics clinic, and most recently (established in 2009) the long-term survivorship clinic.

“These clinics enable us to provide multi-disciplinary care to this population,” said Rimawi. “In addition to improving access to screening, early detection, and state of the art treatment, we are also helping patients determine their risk and assess family history, decide and navigate treatment and manage their survivorship.”  Combined, these clinics provide more than 2,500 patients visits per year.

“Since the beginning, it has been a very dynamic partnership with Harris County,” said Rimawi. “We have worked together to help raise funds from donors and foundations to put in place better resources, such as newer mammography units that allow us to screen many more women.”
