Patient and Family Orientation

Patient and Family Orientation

Being a newly diagnosed patient means that you and your family will have many questions about your diagnosis and treatment options. Getting information is the first step.

  • Who to call for answers and assistance
  • How to find your way to your clinic, labs, dining options and healing gardens
