PREPARING FOR YOUR FIRST VISIT

There will be a great deal of information gathered at your first visit. It is important to bring the following items with you:

A list of doctors you are currently seeing

Laboratory test information, x-rays or other information given to you by your personal physician

A list of medications you are currently taking and the dosages prescribed

Health Care Proxy or Living Will (if you do not have one our registrar can provide you with a Health Care Proxy form)

Social Security Card

Security cards and any insurance forms

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

YOUR FIRST VISIT

Upon arrival at the Cancer Center, you must check in with our receptionist. She can answer any questions you may have and keep you informed of changes or delays.

Next our registrar will ask you a series of questions and explain our billing procedures. The registrar can also answer any questions you may have about insurance coverage. Once this interview is completed, you will be asked to return to the reception area.

The Cancer Center's on-site laboratory services provide an added convenience for you. If it's required, you will have blood drawn by one of our medical technologists. In many cases, your blood will be processed so your physician can have the test results at this first visit.

Based on the recommendations of your personal physician, you will be scheduled to see either a medical or radiation oncologist. Some patients see both.
