New patients are asked to bring the following to their first appointment:
- Completed new patient forms. Upon arrival, the front office team will ensure your chart is complete with any patient and medical history forms. If the forms aren’t completed before your appointment, you’ll be asked to complete the forms to help us thoroughly address your medical history, medications, treatment questions, and concerns.
- A photo ID.
- Insurance and pharmacy cards. It’s important your NGOC cancer center has a copy of your current insurance, Medicare or Medicaid cards so your financial claims are appropriately filed.
- A list of current medications.
- A family member or friend. We welcome a loved one to come along to appointments or conferences to participate in discussions of diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plans. We want your family members and supportive friends to be involved. (Please understand our inability to discuss a patient’s care with each concerned individual since the doctor-patient relationship prohibits such discussions without the patient’s express consent. Under special circumstances, a family conference can be arranged to help address all concerned family member’s questions.)
