Cancer Navigators

Our dedicated team of cancer navigators is made up of oncology certified nurses who work with patients, families and physicians to help the cancer patient “navigate” the health care system. Currently our cancer navigator team consists of breast, gastrointestinal/prostate, and lung/brain cancer navigators.

Your navigator can help you and your family with:

  Understanding your cancer diagnosis
  Providing emotional support and guidance
  Assisting with coordination of appointments as needed
  Explaining your treatment options
  Connecting you with services such as nutritional counseling, physicial therapy, genetic testing, financial assistance, support groups and palliative care
  Help remove any road blocks that may hinder your care
  Assist with communication between you and your physicians
  Coordinate participation in the multidisciplinary breast clinic

No referral is needed for this service which is provided free of charge. Simply contact one of our navigators for an appointment.
