Dr. Choong Baick, MD is
Clinical Director of the UC Irvine Breast Health Center and participates in clinical
studies evaluating imaging, treatment, and prevention of breast cancer. Dr.
Baick's clinical interests span the entire range of issues related to normal
and abnormal breast health.
Recognizing the inadequacies in health care for breast disease and the tremendous increase in research and information regarding diagnosis and treatment, in March of 1988 C. H. Baick, M.D. limited his surgical practice solely to breast cancer, breast disease and related problems. “I have had a special interest in breast disease for almost all of my professional life. I saw the incidence of breast cancer increasing to epidemic proportions and decided that, in order for me to give the best-quality care to women, I needed to stop doing general surgery and devote all of my time to breast disease. I have done breast-cancer surgery exclusively since 1988.”
Breast disease is a complex issue that requires personalized therapy to ensure the best treatment results for each individual patient. At UCI’s Breast Group the goal is to provide each patient with an accurate and complete diagnosis and the information she and her family need in order to make informed decisions regarding treatment and to provide comprehensive treatment.
