About

Professional Statement

Dr. Tierney is a 2017 Seattle Met Top Doctor Award winner. Philosophy of care: I choose to approach the diagnosis and management of breast disease as part of a multidisciplinary team, in partnership with an informed patient. My role is to educate the patient on all her options and help her make decisions that reflect her priorities. My special interests include • young and high-risk patients • male breast cancer • the interplay of breast cancer with lactation and pregnancy • surgical approaches which maximize the cosmetic appearance of the breast and, in younger women, preserve the ability to breastfeed • skin-sparing and nipple-sparing mastectomies when appropriate for the patient
