What should I expect at my first visit?

At your first visit, you will meet with your physician to go over your diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment options. You will also have time to ask questions. We suggest bringing a family member or friend with you to support, help listen, and take notes. Write down and bring questions for your physician to the appointment. Your physician may order lab work to be drawn, as well as possible imaging such as CT scans or PET scans. Your physician may also order procedures, such as a biopsy, if necessary.
