Sansum Clinic and the Cancer Center of Santa Barbarawith Sansum Clinic are members of the Santa Barbara Breast Care Alliance (SBBCA) - a “breast care center without walls”, created by surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and plastic surgeons - whose goal it is to deliver a multidisciplinary approach, second to none, for the treatment and care of women with breast cancer.
One of the key functions of Sansum Clinic's Breast Care Program and the Breast Care Alliance is the role of a Breast Care Navigator. A Breast Care Navigator works with the Breast Care Alliance's multidisciplinary team to design a comprehensive individual care plan for each patient based on his or her personal needs and medical history, and helps manage and coordinate doctor's office visits, diagnostic tests, and facilitates communication between physicians involved in the patient's care as well as the primary care physician.

She connects our breast cancer patients with the many resources offered throughout Sansum Clinic, Cancer Center and the Santa Barbara Breast Care Alliance for the best possible outcomes, from diagnosis through treatment and recovery. Tammy follows every patient throughout every aspect of treatment and aids in dispelling fears associated with their diagnosis.
