Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) - Medical Oncology

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Please be sure to bring the following to your first appointment:

  • Referral from your Primary Care Physician
  • Insurance card(s)
  • Pre-authorization if required by insurance
  • Radiographic studies (CT, MRI, etc...)
  • Pathology slides and reports

Does my insurance cover my treatments?

Most insurance companies will pay for at least a portion of your treatment. However, if your insurance claim is rejected, you will be responsible for the balance. We accept cash, check, Visa/MasterCard and offer a variety of payment plans.

What should I do if I have an urgent problem associated with treatment?

If you have an urgent problem associated with your treatment, such as fever, vomiting or other serious symptoms, please call our office immediately at 443-849-3051 and choose option 3 for instructions. If our office is closed, you'll be referred to our answering service, which will promptly contact the oncologist on call. In case of a true emergency, please seek immediate emergency treatment by calling 911.
