Cancer Care Patient Navigator

Going to a hospital can be a scary experience for some, especially after a diagnosis. At Doctors Hospital we understand that and want our patients to have a comforting and pleasant experience from diagnosis to discharge and everything in between.

We know that often the most stressful times in a person's life come when they or a family member is ill with a chronic disease or catastrophic illness. Patients may be alone, confused, and suddenly facing an unfamiliar world of providers, tests, and treatment options. Some are unfamiliar with seeking medical care, struggle to understand medical information, and may face financial pressures or cultural barriers.

To help our cancer patients and caregivers understand the sometimes confusing world of healthcare, Doctors Hospital has implemented a Patient Navigator program to help you every step of the way. The goal is to have seamless, coordinated care. Whether this assistance comes in the form of scheduling an appointment, answering questions about treatment, or further explanation of a diagnosis or treatment plan, our Patient Navigators are here for you.
