Meet Our Patient Navigators

Your Patient Navigator will provide emotional support, education and act as a resource so that you can make well-informed decisions regarding your care options. This service coordinates access to cancer care services while providing quality care and assisting with coping strategies for dealing with fear and anxiety that can be felt by newly diagnosed cancer patients and their families.

The Patient Navigator is also a clinical expert who works with healthcare providers, financial counselors, and social services to enable the patient to access available resources.
