Chemotherapy and How Does It Work

What to expect:

Your physician: The physician you are scheduled to see at your initial consultation will remain your primary provider throughout treatment. At your first visit, you meet the doctor for a new patient evaluation.

Additional tests, x-rays or scans: Your physician may request additional tests, x-rays or scans to best guide your treatment.

Your care team: In addition to your physician, you may also meet oncology nurses, advanced practice providers, radiation therapists, CT/PET technologists, pharmacists, laboratory technicians and clinical research coordinators who will be part of your treatment.

At the end of your visit, you’ll schedule your next appointment.
