Dr. Mangiameli is excited to join NY Breast Health to provide patient-centered care emphasizing patient quality, clinical investigation, outreach, and education. “Although I am a trained cancer surgeon, I am foremost a patient advocate,” he said. “The patient sitting in my exam room is the center of the universe,” he said.

Dr. Mangiameli has continuously provided the energy and leadership to compel and coordinate these clinical teams. Together they have treated thousands of women, according to national guidelines.
