What You Need to Register

Once you're at your clinic location, go to the patient registration desk to check in for your appointment. If you don’t know where to go, ask for directions.

For registration, we will need your:

  • Name and current address
  • Primary care doctor’s name
  • Insurance information, insurance card and prescription card
  • Co-pay for office visit or procedure
  • Social Security number*

* We may ask for your Social Security number to be sure we have the right medical record when two patients have the same name and for some government or other programs. Providing your Social Security number is voluntary, except when government programs require it.

    We offer support groups and programs for specific cancer types. Find and connect with others facing a similar journey.
