CHAT TRANSCRIPT: Turlock doctors answer questions about breast cancer

The Modesto Bee is hosting an online chat this morning at 11 with two doctors from Turlock’s Emanuel Medical Center as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Do you have a question about breast cancer? Are you wondering about symptoms? Potential treatments? The relevance of family history? Whether to start chemotherapy before or after surgery?

Drs. Walter Maynard and Katherine Barton will be available to answer those questions and more.

Maynard is Director of the Ruby E. Bergman Women’s Diagnostic Center and is focused on developing a world-class women’s imaging center for early breast cancer detection and treatment evaluation.

Barton is a board certified general surgeon who specializes in breast cancer surgery.
