October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and so we have an encore broadcast of the Dr. Kim show with Dr. John West of BreastLink of Orange. Dr. West speaks candidly in this important interview about breast cancer risk factors you may never have heard of and how women can protect themselves from this very serious health issue. John West, M.D. is the director of surgery at Breastlink of Orange. A general surgeon by training, Dr. John West became fascinated with the multi-disciplinary team approach to breast cancer care in the mid 1980’s. His previous experience as a pioneer in the development of regional trauma systems set the stage for his interest in developing a team approach to breast care.Dr. John West opened Orange County’s first breast care center in 1988, and over the past 25 years has been on the cutting edge of developing a team approach to the care of patients with breast problems. Dr. West was born in Texas and raised in San Francisco. He did his undergraduate work at U.C. Berkley, and continued medical and surgical training at U.C. S. F. where he graduated A.O.A (top 10% of his class). He started to practice in Orange County in 1973. Dr. West has been named a Best Doctor in America and has been recognized as one of the “Best Doctors in Orange County”. He has been the lead author in 20 peer review articles and has written two books.
