Patients meet with a psychologist, nurse practitioner and medical oncologist, all of whom specialize in cancer survivorship. These visits are billed to insurance as a regular visit with a physician.
To schedule an appointment, a patient must be able provide access to the medical records from his or her cancer treatments.
