Dr. Borofsky joined Mills-Peninsula in 1994 after receiving her undergraduate degree from Brown University, medical degree from Harvard Medical School and after completing her residency and fellowship in radiology, breast imaging and body imaging at Stanford Medical Center.
As medical director of breast imaging at the Mills-Peninsula Women’s Center, Harriet Borofsky, M.D., has been a champion for women’s health and early detection of breast cancer, both within Mills-Peninsula and in the larger community.
Her passion for breast health has kept Mills-Peninsula in the forefront of the latest, live-saving technologies, including digital mammography, 3D ultrasound and breast MRI. In fact, Mills-Peninsula was the first comprehensive breast center in the region and the first to adopt minimally invasive breast biopsy techniques. Dr. Borofsky has also taken in a leadership role in fundraising activities, not only for new technologies, but to assure that all women in the community have access to screening mammography. Her work with the foundation enables over 500 uninsured women participate in the community weekend screening program.
Dr. Borofsky has written numerous articles and has been an invited speaker on topics related to early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. She has received the Mills-Peninsula Physician of the Year award in 2006, the “Making a Difference for Women” award from the Mid-Peninsula chapter of Soroptimist International in 2007 and the deGuigne Award from Mills-Peninsula Foundation in 2010.
