Dr. Gail Weingast earned her medical degree from Boston University and began her career in the field of pediatrics. She loved being able to help children, but during her rotation when she was working in ultrasound and radiology, she saw that she could help people more by seeing inside. Ultrasound and radiology provides a way for doctors like Dr. Gail Weingast to see the root of their patient’s problems and therefore get to a more permanent treatment plan instead of simply treating the symptoms. She is now the Chief of Ultrasound and of Breast Imaging at the William W. Backus Hospital.
