What to Expect
Expect your initial appointment to be around 60 minutes as we will take time to get to know you and perform some baseline assessments to better understand your overall health.
Your visit may cover a wide variety of issues that can impact cancer care for an older adult:
- Current health and medical conditions
- Level of physical ability
- Issues with memory or falling
- Cancer symptoms
- Side effects from treatment
- Medications that could affect chemotherapy
- Home care situation
Please arrive 15 minutes early to your first appointment and bring a list of your current medications and a list of all of your healthcare providers to assist us in collaborating with your entire medical team.
