    Meet Mountain Point Medical Center’s Breast Oncology Specialist

    Dr. Cara Guilfoyle

    Breast Surgery Oncology Specialist

    My team and I are here to help guide you through this journey, from which you will emerge stronger than ever before.

    My philosophy of care is to help patients feel comfortable, especially when they are feeling most scared and/or vulnerable. Most of my patients are very nervous when they arrive for a consultation. My first order of business is to provide reassurance and help them feel comfortable with the recommended plan.

    I treat my patients with the warmth and respect I extend to friends and family. I always try to exude optimism. In these moments of truth, when faced with the prospects of surgery and breast cancer treatment, I want you to realize that you have the strength to face this challenge and you are not alone.

    Breast Surgery Oncology FAQ

    What inspired you to choose your specialty?
    I was inspired to enter medicine by my father. He had always hoped to become a physician however instead took over the family business, a small auto parts store in West Pittston, PA. Throughout the years he helped nurture the confidence and work ethic I would need to pursue a challenging career in a male dominated field such as surgery. His hard work and dedication to his business helped to provide me with the means to reach for the stars. He also showed through example the dedication it takes to be successful in your work. I was drawn to treating breast cancer patients after seeing my grandmother undergo successful breast cancer treatment. I am truly so very thankful to be given the gift of being in a position to have a positive impact on so many lives.
    What conditions or procedures do you have special training or experience in?
    I am a fellowship trained breast surgeon and have certifications in both breast ultrasound and stereotactic procedures. I treat a variety of conditions of the breast including cancer, lumps, cysts, nipple discharge, abscesses, breast pain and breast feeding related surgical issues. I perform my own breast biopsies. I also assess patient for breast cancer risk assessment and perform genetic testing when appropriate.
    Describe the most distinctive features of your practice.
    • Procedures / Services offered: I perform my own breast ultrasound, ultrasound guided and stereotactic biopsy procedures.
    • Access/convenience: consultations will be offered within 2-3 days and when possible on the same day (it can take a day or so to get old medical records such as prior biopsy results and most importantly prior imaging. It is quickest if the patient gets her prior imaging on a disk and brings it to appt)
    • Service: I usually perform biopsies on the same day of consultation
    What are the top 3 things referring physicians should know about you (distinctive services, communication, see referrals the same day, unique training, etc.)?
    • I have certifications in breast ultrasound, therefore I can perform breast ultrasound in the office. This saves the patient time and anxiety waiting for an imaging study. I also perform genetic testing in the office.
    • I usually schedule my patient appointments so their breast imaging is on the same day of their office appointment. Therefore they can get immediate results and if biopsy is necessary, I can perform the procedure the same day as well.
    • A large part of this specialty is managing the anxiety patients are feeling as they go through the process of a breast biopsy or cancer diagnosis. It is personally very important to me that they feel as calm as possible and that all of their questions are answered. I let them know of their pathology and genetic testing results as soon as they are available.
    Describe the patients you see (demographics, lifestyle, age)
    My most typical patient would be a 40-60 year old female with abnormal breast imaging. In general I see women ages 30-85, many with a family history of breast or ovarian cancer (high risk population). I also see females 12-25 who tend to have breast cysts or fibroadenomas.

Most of my patients are very nervous when they arrive for a consultation. My first order of business is to provide reassurance and help them feel comfortable with the recommended plan.

    What are your hobbies?
    I am a very adventurous person and have numerous personal interests which include cycling, trail running, backcountry and downhill skiing, orienteering, yoga, and traveling. I regularly compete in triathlons and endurance events such as adventure racing. I also cherish quality time with my husband and daughter.
