A cancer diagnosis can be an extremely lonely, sad and overwhelming experience. For newly diagnosed patients, the following few weeks can be extremely busy and challenging as patients face decisions regarding their treatment and care options.
From choosing a doctor and team at a health center to help build a treatment plan, to determining the most appropriate insurance plan, it’s important to weigh your options, ask the right questions and be as prepared as possible.
As part of our mission to ensure patients never feel alone and have the right materials available throughout the initial stages of their diagnosis and beyond, we try to provide patients with resources and questions that may help patients make informed treatment and care decisions in collaboration with their doctors.
