Where to Turn: Here
When to Turn Here: Now. Today.
If you're visiting our site, whether you searched for us or were guided here, chances are your visit is more than just idle curiosity. A more likely reason is that you or a loved one may be confronting the prospect – or the reality – of a diagnosis of cancer.
If that is your situation, we urge you to contact us right away. In those circumstances our standing policy is to work to see first-time patients the same day if possible, but no later than the next day.
When test results, a screening, symptoms, or an examination strongly suggest the presence of cancer, among the most stressful aspects of dealing with the prospect of the disease is waiting to see a specialist. Those first few hours and days are when questions and uncertainty make the emotional aspects of dealing with cancer the most difficult.
That is precisely why we want to respond so quickly when you call. We know that what you want and need – right now – are answers, information, and an expert voice with the insight to help you make sense of what lies ahead.
Answers, guidance, reassurance
A diagnosis of cancer is the beginning of a journey that takes patients and families through new and unsettling experiences — appointments, tests, uncertainty, and unfamiliar terminology.
All those are reasons why it's so important to have a center, a home, where you can find the answers to sort through it all. Patients in our community have found that center, that home, at Onlsow Oncology.
As a Medical Oncology practice we treat patients through various forms of chemotherapy. But alongside that aspect of care we also explain, clarify, guide, inform, and coordinate other forms of care. Helping patients and families navigate those first difficult days and weeks is among the central roles we play in providing compassionate, expert care.
