Specialized Breast & GYN Care is Closer Than You Think

A Q&A with Dr. Patrick Tassin, OB-GYN, Alexandria Women’s Center

Why is a specialized breast and GYN facility in close proximity important?

The thing about central Louisiana is that we have a fair amount of general practitioners, surgeons and OB-GYNs, but not specialists. So it’s huge to be able to offer our patients access to specialists a few hours away who can help provide a higher level of care.

What are patients’ experiences with the Breast & GYN Pavilion?

Patients in central Louisiana have been very open to going to the Pavilion in Baton Rouge for treatment, because they know the care they’ll receive there is just as good, if not better, than they’d get at bigger institutions at MD Anderson. And the personalized care at the Pavilion gives us as referring physicians a great peace of mind about sending our patients there. Our patients receive excellent care with half the drive, which is a lot more convenient. There’s also more personal attention at the Pavilion than they’d get at a larger facility like the ones in Texas."
