Biography

Laura Sheiman, MD is a board certified radiologist specializing in breast imaging. Dr. Sheiman’s clinical expertise covers all aspects of breast imaging, including screening and diagnostic tomosynthesis mammography (3D mammography,) breast ultrasound, breast MRI, and image guided breast procedures. Her interests include patient experience, patient physician communication and quality improvement. In addition to her clinical activities, Dr. Sheiman is an active and involved teacher of residents and fellows.

Dr. Sheiman chose to specialize in breast imaging to be able to interact with patients and directly impact their care. “Hearing you need more tests or a biopsy after a mammogram can be very frightening,” she says. “I try to explain what we’re seeing and what the next steps will be. I tell them, ‘We are here for you every step of the way.’”

“Working in a multispecialty center allows us to give patients the resources they need from diagnosis through treatment,” she says. Dr. Sheiman sees patients at the Breast Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital, Park Avenue Medical Center, and North Haven Medical Center; as well as outpatient offices in Fairfield, Stratford, and New Haven.
