The journey you are about to begin can be confusing and difficult. Your Care Management team will be invaluable in helping you successfully navigate the treatment process. Your team will consist of your physician, patient navigator, nurse, and other experts, as needed. 

To begin, you will be assigned a patient navigator, who will help you prepare for what lies ahead. Your patient navigator is a highly skilled oncology-certified registered nurse who will work closely with your physician and other members of your team to make certain you receive the support and services you require.

The goal of care management is to help you manage your physical, psychosocial and emotional needs, and act as your primary contact. Care management performs many functions, including providing education regarding the problems or side effects commonly experienced throughout treatment while under your physician’s care. Your patient navigator will assist you with creating and understanding your personalized plan of care and help facilitate communication between your oncologist and other providers.

We are enhancing patient care by offering telehealth services. In many cases, patients now have the option to meet with their physician, advanced practitioner, nurse, or social worker through video chat on a computer or mobile device. This virtual visit provides the same high-quality care from the comfort of your home or from any other private location.

Our approach to cancer care is always patient focused and personalized, whether care is delivered in a personal visit at our office or via a video chat. Telehealth services, when appropriate, provide an excellent option for patients who cannot travel, or wish to reduce travel.

Please contact our office to schedule a virtual visit.

Medical bills, insurance claims, benefits and deductibles can be confusing and overwhelming.
