Our experienced and compassionate oncology nurse navigator quickly becomes the champion for patients, as she counsels, schedules and coordinates each office visit.
Patients can expect the following:
- Prior to a patient’s first visit, our nurse navigator contacts the patient and/or their caregiver to collect medical history, including genetic history, and answer any questions.
- At the first appointment, our navigator greets each patient helping to put them at ease. Patients then meet one-on-one with members of our oncology specialist team who will discuss treatment options and answer questions.
- Patients will also spend time with our lifestyle counselors to discuss resources available through our Survivorship Program.
- Before each patient leaves, our nurse navigator thoroughly walks through their plan of care, and actively listens for questions she can help answer. Our nurse navigator will help patients understand their next steps.
Patients can count on our nurse navigator to help guide them through their entire journey, coordinating physician appointments and communication between providers and counselors within our clinic.
