Dr. Anson brings extensive experience in psychotherapy and psychopharmacology from the Therapy Center of New York. He completed his psychiatry training at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, where he was chief resident.

He also is qualified to provide psycho-educational counseling on a number of psychiatric issues concerning patients and/or their family members. He sees patients at the breast center office in Fairfield Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. For information, call 203-255-5300.

“Breast cancer is more than a medical or surgical diagnosis,” says Donna Twist, PhD, Norma Pfriem Breast Center executive director. “It also requires emotional support for patients and their families. The addition of Dr. Anson to our staff is a testament to the comprehensive, multi-layered care we have provided to the community for over 15 years.”

Other services provided by the Norma Pfriem Breast Center include medical oncology, breast surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, pulmonology, lymphedema therapy, genetic assessment for breast and ovarian cancer, sleep disorder evaluation and treatment, and patient navigation.

The center also offers wellness services including acupuncture, massage, meditation, naturopathic medicine, nutrition counseling, Pilates, Reiki, relaxation techniques, yoga, and wig, bra and prosthetic fittings.

Now celebrating its 15th year of service to breast cancer patients and their families, the Norma Pfriem Breast Center also has offices at Bridgeport Hospital and at 5520 Park Avenue in Trumbull. The center is accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers for meeting high standards in patient care quality.
