Professional Statement

Dr. Dawson is a 2017 Seattle Met Top Doctor Award winner. Philosophy of care: I believe in the importance of a women-centered interdisciplinary team in the treatment of women with breast cancer and benign breast disorders. The patient is an essential member of the team, and we work together with her to evaluate her condition, provide her with information about diagnostic and treatment options, address her questions and concerns, and provide appropriate, compassionate care.
