Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center provides a patient navigator at no cost for patients diagnosed with cancer. The patient navigator serves as a consistent guide to coordinate patients’ care, provides educational materials, and answers questions and follow-up after surgery.
Our patient navigator helps to make sure patients and their families have all the information they need to make the most informed and timely decisions about their treatment plan.
Additional services our patient navigators provide include:
- Easing concerns and answering questions
- Discussing available clinical trials
- Scheduling consultations for patients and their families with appropriate specialist as needed
- Providing information and literature relative to a specific diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care
