What To Expect

Once an order is received for treatment, our authorization team will work with your payer to obtain approval for services. If you are a self-pay patient, our financial counselor will reach out to speak with you. Once the service is authorized, we will book an appointment for your treatment or treatment plan. For oncology patients, we may book a follow-up clinic appointment to review any questions and to tour the infusion center. We’re proud of our renovated, private treatment space that includes state-of-the-art infusion chairs.

A registered nurse (RN) case manager will navigate you through your care and be present for clinic visits as well as infusion treatments. You will also meet with our social worker who will provide advance directive care, patient portal access, family support, and any necessary resources, including transportation, wigs, and prosthetics. Feel free to reach out to the RN or social worker during the course of your care as needs arise.
