Cancer Care Coordination
Our team of cancer care coordinators will help you make sense of your diagnosis, understand your treatment options, and give you the information you need to make decisions about your care. We’ll also help coordinate your appointments and treatments and provide you with the resources and support services you may need.
We Take a Holistic Vview of Treatment
We understand that a cancer diagnosis affects all aspects of your life: your emotional well-being, diet, physical activity, family, work, finances, and more. Maintaining a healthy mind and body is an essential part of the healing process, and our physicians, nurses and staff will empower you with the information, resources, and compassionate support you need every step of the way.
Getting a Second Opinion
We encourage you to learn as much as possible about your diagnosis and treatment options and we encourage you to seek out a second opinion. It’s important that you and your caregivers make informed decisions about your care and feel rest-assured that the treatments you choose are right for you. Our staff will set up your appointments, help you obtain your medical records, radiology and pathology reports, and provide a referral if one is required by your insurance company.
