Elisa Port, MD, FACS, director of the Dubin Breast Center and chief of Breast Surgery at the Mount Sinai Hospital, said she knew she wanted to be a surgeon early on in medical school. But it wasn’t until further into her training that she developed an interest in cancer, specifically breast cancer. “I love taking care of women. There’s a huge psychological, sociological component and overlay. I do love talking with my patients and working with them to come up with the best treatment plans,” Dr. Port said. Dr. Port teamed up with Eva Dubin, and they launched the Dubin Breast Center. In a sense, it’s one stop for any woman diagnosed with or at high risk of breast cancer. "The idea of all the care being under one roof and having everything you need really unburdens them. I mean it's so amazing to me when a patient says to me, ok, I'm gonna schedule my surgery, how do I find the plastic surgeon? How do I do that? And I say I'm gonna take care of that for you," Dr. Port explained.
