Our patients should expect a warm welcome every time they visit our offices. Cancer care can be frightening, and we're here to help women understand their treatment options in a comfortable environment. The following tips will help you through your first visit with us:

  • A support person is welcome to join you
  • Know your personal and family medical histories
  • Prior to your visit, check with your insurance company to see if referral authorization is required
  • Please bring your insurance card with you and be prepared to pay your co-payment at check-in
  • Expect to be in our clinic for one-two hours
  • You may eat and drink prior to appointment
  • A nurse will check you in, and then you and your family will meet with the physician to discuss your case before a personal exam is conducted
  • If surgery is necessary, you'll meet with our surgery scheduler and receive a detailed surgery information packet
  • You may encounter a medical resident as part of our commitment to education
  • If you are eligible for a clinical trial, your doctor will discuss this with you
