Your Cancer Clinic Visit

Please bring the following, unless they have been sent in advance:

  • Medical records
  • X-rays or imaging CD
  • Pathology slides
  • Letters from your physician
  • Any other materials your physician has regarding your case or treatment
  • List of all your medications

If you belong to an HMO, please obtain a referral prior to your visit.


If you have brought medical records with you, please give them to the nursing staff. The staff will prepare you for your examination. If at any time during your visit you feel ill, please let a staff member know.


Appointment Length


The length of your appointment will vary between 30 minutes to a full day depending on the number of specialists you see and the services provided. All appointments vary due to the individual needs of the patient.


Patients from Out of Town


Our housing office can help you make arrangements for an overnight stay if you want to come early to your appointment or stay over night before heading back. Discounted rates are available to our patients. Please call (608) 263-0315 or stop by the housing desk located at the Hospital Entrance on the second floor.


If you are traveling from far away, you might want to pack an overnight bag in case you are asked to return to the clinic for further evaluation on the following day. This happens infrequently.
