Dr. Susan C. Gaskill, M.D. - Honorary Board Member Dr. Gaskill's road to becoming a clinical breast radiologist was a gradual process, woven in life experiences, a journey of faith, and her background as a critical care nurse. She was born and raised in Houston and graduated from Bellaire High School in 1975. She attended The University of Texas at Austin and received a Bachelors Degree in Nursing with honors in 1979. After completing nursing school, she worked in intensive care at Hermann Hospital, but it wasn't long before she made the decision to return to school to become a doctor. While working as a nurse at Hermann, she completed her premedical requirements at Houston Baptist University and entered The University of Texas Medical School at Houston in 1983. Dr. Gaskill was elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society, and received The Faculty Wives Club Scholarship, and The Janet M. Glascow academic achievement award. She completed a residency in radiology at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas in 1991. During the final years of her radiology training, she had the opportunity to rotate through the newly founded Susan G. Komen Breast Center where she had the opportunity to interface with women undergoing imaging tests and biopsies to determine if they had breast cancer. It was the fear in their eyes that touched her heart and fueled her passion to help these women through the process. Dr. Gaskill seized the opportunity to implement her nursing skills, listening to them and offering words of encouragement and support. She was distressed when radiologists at the breast center refused to discuss the imaging findings and management options directly with the women at the time of their appointments at the breast center, reinforcing the perception that radiologists just sit in dark rooms reading x-rays. She was thrilled at the opportunity for hands-on, face-to-face contact with patients while applying the diagnostic skills she was learning. These experiences inspired Dr. Gaskill to subspecialize in the new and growing field of breast imaging and led her to become the first fellow in breast imaging at the Susan G. Komen Breast Center at Baylor Dallas in 1992. After completing her fellowship training, she served as the medical director of the Women's Diagnostic Center at Medical City Dallas Hospital before returning to the Houston Clear Lake area in 1999, where she practiced through October 2005. Dr. Gaskill has since been serving as the interim Medical Director at the Baylor Women's Imaging Center in Plano, Texas, for the purpose of learning new technology and its implementation, most importantly, digital mammography and dedicated breast MRI. Her vision is to bring these new tools in the fight against breast cancer to the women of the Bay Area, and to present them in a compassionate, comfortable, personalized atmosphere. She named our new facility Victory Breast Diagnostics and Women's Imaging, because of its location near the Victory Lakes community in League City, and to serve as a reminder that winning is the only option. The facility will deliver comprehensive expert care with a team approach, which she credits to the lessons she learned as a critical care nurse and mother of four children.

Dr. Susan Gaskill is a giver, ...

Dr. Susan Gaskill is a giver, a doer and an agent for positive change in women's health care.
Since the very beginning of her career as a physician, she has been determined to put women at ease when facing some of their most difficult health challenges, and to bring them the best tools, technology and education possible. Now, as founder and Medical Director of Victory Breast Diagnostics and Women's Imaging in League City, she is accomplishing exactly that.
This native Houstonian's path to Victory started when she made the leap from the nursing profession to medical school. During her residency in radiology at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas in 1991, she had an opportunity to interact with women as they underwent imaging studies and biopsies to determine whether they had breast cancer.
Fear was the common denominator in so many of these encounters, and that stirred Dr. Gaskill's empathy and passion for making the experience less terrifying. Her next move toward that goal was to enter the emerging field of breast imaging. In 1992, she became the first fellow in breast imaging at the Susan G. Komen Breast Center at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.
After completing her fellowship training, Dr. Gaskill served as medical director for the Women's Diagnostic Center in Medical City Dallas Hospital. In 1999, she returned to the Clear Lake area and worked in a hospital imaging practice. Next, she served as interim director for the Baylor Women's Imaging Center in Plano. Along the way, she worked to acquire experience using digital mammography, breast MRI and other advanced imaging technologies for detecting diseases earlier. She continually gained insight and formed distinct ideas about how she could improve on the entire care experience for women in the Clear Lake area.
As the idea for her private practice evolved, Dr. Gaskill recognized a void in the availability of advanced imaging services between Clear Lake and Galveston. "I saw both a need and an opportunity to bring improvements to imaging technology and to the level of personalized care women in this area received," she says.
...
"Everything about Victory-from the state-of-the-art imaging equipment to the facility layout and décor, the waiting areas and the fluffy robes instead of flimsy gowns-is designed to provide the best possible experience," says Dr. Gaskill.
...
Dr. Gaskill says patients are pleasantly surprised to learn that they can not only get mammograms and MRIs done at the Center, but also pelvic ultrasound, bone density testing, breast and thyroid biopsies. "They love the idea that all of these services are available under one roof and that often they can have multiple services done all in one appointment."
"Exciting and Rewarding"
"Opening Victory has given me a three-dimensional view of the business of medicine rather than a one-dimensional one," says Dr. Gaskill. "Just as I didn't become a doctor overnight, I knew that I would have a learning curve as I built my practice. I like that challenge and it has been exciting and rewarding."
Challenge motivates Dr. Gaskill and she has drawn inspiration from a number of sources, including friendships with several pioneering women physicians and the life of a close friend who died of breast cancer. "I was also inspired by reading Joel Osteen's 2004 book Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential," she says. That really challenged me to make Victory Breast Imaging a reality."
Keeping the Faith
Dr. Gaskill's faith has guided her throughout her life and she has more freedom to express it in her private practice. "We wanted to have a spiritually-enriched environment where faith can be openly discussed," she says. "In our recovery room, for example, we have a display of crosses and a Star of David. Many of those are gifts from my patients. They tell me that cross wall has given them so much strength. That's really what the name Victory is all about-victory is a very empowering word, and faith that we will have victory over breast cancer keeps all of us going-patients as well as staff."
Since the Center opened, Dr. Gaskill and her team have received stacks of notes and letters. "What's so amazing is that not only do patients thank me for opening the center and for helping them through a difficult experience, they tell me they pray for me!"
Role Models
There are three generations of Dr. Gaskill's family involved with Victory. "My oldest daughter, who's 26, was born while I was in med school," she says. "She works here, so she gets first-hand experience observing what I do. My other daughters, ages 21 and 19, do some part-time work at the Center, and my 16-year-old son gets courier duty. My mother also volunteers as my personal assistant. She keeps me organized, and the secret is that she is the real boss here."
Does Dr. Gaskill think her children see her as a role model? "I hope that my children have seen the importance of perseverance and tenacity more than anything," she says. "They'll certainly hear me quoting Eleanor Roosevelt: 'We must do that which we think we cannot.' I also hope they see that my foundation of faith is what keeps me going and that they should not let other people discourage them from achieving whatever they want to accomplish."
Dr. Susan Gaskill has served on the advisory board of the D'Feet Breast Cancer Foundation since 2007. Victory Breast Imaging also participates in D'Feet's screenings for underserved and uninsured in Galveston County. She was selected as a Hero of Hope by the American Cancer Society of the Bay Area in 2008. In February 2012, she launched a new support group for breast cancer patients. The group meets at Victory Imaging Center the second Monday of each month.
Dr. Susan Gaskill has a passion for helping women who may have a higher risk for developing breast cancer. "So many women don't know their true risk," she says.
