Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect during my visit?

After you are registered and checked in by our front desk clerks, a medical assistant will bring you into the clinic, take your vital signs and seat you in a clinic room. The provider will then meet with you and describe the purpose of the visit, review how you are feeling, perform a physical examination as indicated and discuss test results, recommended additional tests if needed and discuss  management options for your diagnosis.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Bring your insurance card, co-pay, photo ID (driver’s license, etc.) and current medications or medication list, and any outside medical records which may be relevant.

Do I have cancer?

In our clinic, we see people with both blood disorders and cancers. It is possible that your doctor sent you to see us for a blood condition that is entirely benign and not cancer. We will clarify this during your visit. Most of the times, people are informed of a cancer diagnosis before they come to our clinic.

There is a lot of information about cancer on the internet. Here are some reliable resources:

  • American Cancer Society
  • American Society of Clinical Oncology
  • Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
