For Patients

My First Appointment

As a new patient at Shenandoah Oncology, we want you to feel comfortable, cared for and informed.  Prior to your first visit to reduce your wait time, we ask that you print and complete our new patient forms in their entirety, then bring them to your first appointment.

We recommend if possible that you bring another person with you to your first appointment, which may last one hour or more.

Your first appointment may include the following:

  • New patient evaluation with your physician
  • Any additional lab tests needed for accurate diagnosis to help guide your treatment
  • Meeting the nurses, medical assistants, and other members of your healthcare team
  • Meeting with a patient benefit representative to discuss your insurance benefits
