Direct Access for Coordinating Patient Care

  • Coordinating Care

    Coordinating care for your patients can be done in several ways. For each program, we have skilled staff answering the phones, with ready access to knowledgeable nurses. We make it as easy as possible to connect directly with physicians and mid-level practitioners.

    Ongoing communication and collaboration with our referring partners is among our top priorities. We will keep you informed and connected in the shared care of your patients.

    Next-day Patient Access

    Next-day appointments at Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center allow patients to meet with a specialist to begin the process of mapping out a personalized treatment plan as soon as possible. At their first appointment, patients meet with an oncologist who can explain the possible courses of treatment, answer medical questions, and recommend next steps.
