Collaborating on Shared Patient Care

We welcome the opportunity to work with you. We are committed to providing timely access to our specialists when you need it. Whether contacting us by phone, the web, or through our physician liaison, we will promptly attend to the needs of you and your patient. We offer next day appointments in Boston for newly-diagnosed patients for whom quick access is important. In addition, patients will receive a call back from one of our oncology nurses to answer questions and help them prepare for the appointment.
