Welcome to our Carbone Cancer Clinics. To make your visit here easier, please read below.
Checking in: You begin every visit by checking in at the Registration Desk (1).
Lab draws: If you are scheduled for a lab draw, you get a pager. Please wait in our Clinic Waiting Room (2). When your pager goes off, go to the Cancer Lab (3).
The Cancer Lab gives you a slip of paper after your labs are drawn. This paper is used to let clinic staff know you are ready to see your doctor. If your doctor is on the Main Level, please put the slip of paper in the basket at the Registration Desk (1). If your doctor is in the First Floor Cancer Clinic (J3/1), take the elevator to the first floor. Put the slip of paper in the First Floor Cancer Clinic Reception Area (4) basket.
Tests: If you are scheduled for tests like an x-ray, CT scan, MRI, or EKG, go there next (9 or 10). If you have a doctor appointment after your test, please go to the Registration Desk (1) when your test is done. This lets staff know the tests are done.
Doctor appointment: If your doctor sees you in the First Floor Cancer Clinic (J3/1), take the elevator to the first floor. Check in at the First Floor Cancer Clinic Reception Area (4). Wait there. If your doctor is on the Main Level, wait in the Clinic Waiting Room (2).
When done: When you are done with your doctor appointment and tests for the day, go to one of the Schedulers’ Desks (5). They make your next appointment. They also give you a summary of the day’s visit.
Chemotherapy(chemo): If you need a treatment in the Chemo Room, go to the Chemo Check in Desk (6). Sit in the Chemo Waiting Area (7) until a staff member comes to get you.
We may need to wait for your doctor to sign chemotherapy orders or for lab results to come back. If you prefer not to sit in the waiting room, please ask for a text pager at the Chemo Check in Desk. This pager allows you to go other places in the hospital. You may want to visit the cafeteria, gift shop, or pharmacy while you wait. When your nurse is ready for you, your pager will buzz. There will be a note to return to the Chemo Room.
Your next appointment is given to you in the Chemotherapy Room. It may be mailed to you.
Medicines: You may need prescriptions filled. If so, pick them up at the Cancer Outpatient Pharmacy (8) before you leave.
