Our Locations

Our Physicians

Our Breast Services Program is led by Dr. Lori Lilley, a board-certified surgeon with more than 20 years of experience. With her in practice is Dr. Michalina Kupsik, a board-certified surgeon with clinical interests in treating a spectrum of benign and malignant breast diseases.

There are many types of breast surgery and both Dr. Lilley and Dr. Kupsik use their advanced skills and experience to help patients decide what is best for them.

Dr. Lilley is a strong advocate for her patients and believes strongly in decisions and medical planning that considers both their individual needs and feelings. Dr. Kupsik believes that all patients deserve the highest quality of treatment and should have their options thoroughly explained; an open line of communication and understanding a patients' concerns from the very first visit is key for building trust and creating an environment of healing.
