Appointments

Making an appointment is as simple as picking up the phone and calling our office. You may become our patient either by making the appointment yourself or through a physician referral. The New Patient Coordinator will be your first contact with our office. Our New Patient Coordinator (443-481-4884 prompt #2) will answer any questions and address any concerns you may have or direct you to the appropriate person. We want this first contact with our office to go as smoothly as possible.

The New Patient Coordinator will work with you to make an appropriate initial appointment with one of our physicians. As part of this process, you will be asked to provide necessary information including your diagnosis, the name of your referring physician and your insurance coverage. We will need all records pertaining to your illness from your doctors and will help you obtain them. The registration paperwork will be mailed to you for your convenience and should be brought to your first appointment.

We also welcome the opportunity to provide second opinions. We know how stressful the initial diagnosis is, and we strive to deliver complete and accurate information as informatively and compassionately as possible. Be assured that our exceptional physicians will do their very best to help you.

We strive to keep waiting time to a minimum, but please realize that delays can occur due to emergencies and unforeseen patient needs.

We ask that you always:

  • Bring insurance cards.
  • Let us know whenever you change your address, telephone number, employment and marital status or insurance.
  • Bring a list of all medications that you are currently taking (including over-the-counter remedies, vitamins and herbal supplements.)
  • Write down any questions or concerns that you may have to discuss with your physician
  • If you wish, bring someone with you to help listen to your physician’s comments and responses to your questions.
  • Make your next appointment every time you visit the Oncology Center. This includes lab, physician, medication, and radiology appointments.

We understand that emergencies and special needs can occur, and we will do our very best to accommodate your specific needs. We request that should you need to cancel an appointment, you provide as much notice as possible in order for us to enable another patient to see the doctor.

Once you make an appointment, all facets of our services –from the latest research findings to the most advanced technology- will be made available for your healing.
