Psych-Oncology

Our team is here for you 

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.

Cancer Care Assessment

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.
