Collaborative Nurses and Certified
Medical Assistants

The Collaborative Nurses are your primary contact as far as relaying your questions and concerns to the physicians. Each physician has their own dedicated nurse, who will get to know you, and address your concerns with the physicians. These nurses are oncology certified and bring many years of oncology experience.

The Certified Medical Assistants will take you from the waiting room back to the exam room. They obtain your height, weight, and other vital signs. They also review your medication lists, assist with prescription refills, report to the doctor any immediate concerns as well as assist the physician with in-office procedures.

Scheduling Staff

These are the ladies of scheduling. When you are finished seeing your provider, you will stop by scheduling and book your next appointment with these ladies. They coordinate scans, referrals to other offices, and your return appointments within our office.
