Senior clinical social worker Barbara Passman plays a key role in helping patients acclimate to the breast cancer care process. She answers questions and helps ease fears.

Social workers focus holistically -- not only the problems and the weaknesses, but also on the strengths, that can empower people to help themselves. Barbara can help patients feel comfortable in a complex medical center and help them acknowledge their questions and fears. She helps patients to feel as though they are equal partners on a team and encourages them to communicate with their physicians.

Barbara helps patients navigate through the choices they are facing and to cope with all the financial and family adjustments following a breast cancer diagnosis. She focuses on each patient as an individual and provides support tailored to their needs.
