At CMOH, we know how important your first appointment is with your medical team. You will meet with one of our patient navigators who will get to know you, tell you what to expect and go over any issues you might have about insurance, finances, transportation or other concerns. You will then meet your care team. They will spend as much time with you as you need to answer your questions and discuss your treatment options.
Our nursing staff is specially trained to administer chemotherapy and manage the side effects of these medications. All of our nurses are members of the Oncology Nursing Society. A majority of them have obtained their specialty certification in oncology.
Many treatments involve frequent or regular lab tests and procedures, such as x-rays and scans. It often requires seeing other doctors as well. CMOH takes on the responsibility of scheduling and coordinating all of your care. This gives you more time and energy to focus on you, the patient. We will make your appointments, communicate with your other doctors, and follow up to make sure you have quick access to important information.
Good communication is at the heart of your care at CMOH. We want to work with you to assure that you understand your treatment and participate in the decision making process. Our team communicates with each other, with your referring doctors, and other physicians involved in your care.
At CMOH, our goal is to keep you as healthy as possible and to help you avoid unnecessary visits to the emergency room or hospital admissions. To do this, we educate you about possible symptoms and problems, so that you know when to call us. We have telephone triage nurses available to talk to you about how to remedy any problems that do arise.
