Preparing for your Visit
In order for us to provide the best treatment plan for you, we need to clearly and completely understand your medical history and the treatment that you may have already had to date.
It is important to bring the following items to your first appointment:
- Medical Records and Written Reports
- Referring Physician Letter
- A List of Current Medications: This includes all prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, alternative medications, vitamins, herbs and supplements.
- Radiology Tests: This includes X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, PET scans, ultrasounds, and current mammogram. It is important that our physicians review the actual films, either in hard copy or digital format, in addition to the written reports.
- Pathology Report(s): If you have been diagnosed with cancer, then a pathologist has already made a diagnosis by reviewing a biopsy or tumor specimen. A copy of ‘all’ pathology reports will be requested and reviewed by our clinic.
- Insurance: We do not accept insurance for any portion of this treatment.
- Contact information for your referring physician, primary care physician (PCP), oncologist, internist, etc.
- Financial Requirement: Deposits are required to initiate treatment, including genetic testing.
- Questions: It is always a good idea to bring a list of questions to ask your physician. In addition, we encourage patients to bring a family member or significant other to help you take notes and ask questions.
Our Patient Scheduling Coordinator will contact you by phone to obtain necessary information prior to your first visit and is available to answer any questions that you have regarding your appointment. Please call 713-335-5697 and ask for Prospective Patients Coordinator if you have any questions of concerns.
