A diagnosis of cancer can feel overwhelming, discouraging, and very stressful. Our Psych-Oncology Team specializes in the care of cancer patients and their support systems. Psych-oncology staff can help patients and families cope with the stressors associated with cancer in a healthy, adaptive way, from diagnosis through survivorship.
Ask your cancer care team about a referral to psych-oncology.

We care for you as a whole person. To do this, we identify and address areas of concern that may affect quality of life or interfere with cancer treatment. You will complete a patient support survey, called a Cancer Care assessment, every few months to help your medical team learn about your or your family’s emotional, physical or practical concerns.
See what our experts say on whether to tell others about a cancer diagnosis and how to go about it.
Please call 911 if you have an emergency or urgent medical question.
