Once you have consulted with your radiation oncologist your daily radiation therapy is scheduled with our coordinators.
Radiation is a daily treatment, 5 days a week, Monday through Friday. The time of your radiation treatment is usually somewhere between 15-30 minutes depending on the type of radiation you’re receiving and to what part of the body.
We understand that you have a busy schedule outside of treatment and will work hard to offer you a convenient time to get your treatment. When you begin treatment, you will be offered a series of times throughout the day that are available. You simply choose the time that is most convenient for you and that is your time through your entire course of therapy. If, by chance, the time that you prefer is not available initially you may be able to switch to it after starting your treatment, keeping in mind that there are always other people who are finishing their radiation at different times.
To save you time at your first appointment, we encourage you to take a moment to print out and complete the following forms and bring them with you to your first appointment:
In addition to your completed forms, please bring your insurance card, your ID and all imaging related to the diagnosed site (CT, MRI, PET/CT) with you to your scheduled appointment.
Please plan to arrive at your appointment 15 minutes early to complete any additional paperwork and answer questions our team might have. Thank you.
