Breast cancer

A team that cares about your wellbeing!

A member of the Breast Clinic team will guide each patient through every steps of the medical process.

Step 1: Meeting with a Surgeon

  • Patient is given an appointment with a Breast Clinic surgeon soon after their referral by their attending physician.
  • The surgeon reviews the patient’s medical records and may perform a physical breast exam.
    No x-rays are taken at this initial meeting.

Step 2: Tests and Examinations

  • Depending on the case, the surgeon may ask the patient to pass additional tests and examinations to confirm the diagnosis (i.e., radiology, biopsy).
    In this case, Hôpital Montfort will contact the patient to schedule test dates.

Step 3: The Results

  • The patient must contact the Breast Clinic to schedule a follow-up appointment as soon as the test dates are set.
    Telephone: 613-746-4621, ext. 4307
