First Medical Oncology Appointment

What to Expect

Your medical oncology team is dedicated to making sure your treatment is as seamless and stress-free as possible.

During your first appointment, your medical oncologist will:

  • Review your results from any tests or biopsies, including your blood work
  • Discuss your family history of cancer
  • Explain the personalized treatment plan he/ she would recommend for your type of cancer, including the option for clinical trials.
  • Arrange for other tests and procedures as indicated.

If your treatment includes chemotherapy, a teaching visit will be arranged to discuss what to expect during your chemotherapy.
