Your First Visit: UPMC CancerCenter Specialty Care

What Will My First Visit with UPMC CancerCenter Specialty Care Be Like?

At your first visit, members of the UPMC CancerCenter Specialty Care team will review your complete patient profile and discuss the results from all of your diagnostic tests.

During the visit, the appropriate multidisciplinary team members will convene to discuss your case and recommend a treatment plan.

Then, doctors will meet with you and your family to:

  • Discuss your case
  • Help make any necessary decisions about your care
  • Outline and explain treatment recommendations

The nurse coordinator will make all follow-up appointments to get you started on your treatment plan right away.

This seamless approach to patient care helps minimize your anxiety and prevent delays in your treatment.
