Your First Appointment

When you come to a KishHealth Cancer Center for your initial appointment for cancer treatment, we ask that you arrive 20 minutes early to complete forms. Please bring the following items to your first appointment:

  • Referral from primary care physician
  • Insurance card(s)
  • List of medications with doses you are currently taking
  • Personal calendar so you can schedule follow-up appointments

Making Your Appointment

Our staff members will try their best to schedule your treatments and physician visits at your convenience, based on availability. You are welcome to schedule your ongoing visits in advance to ensure you receive the days and times that work best for your schedule. Each time you arrive for an appointment, please check in with the receptionist.


Staff is available to provide interpretation and translator services for our Spanish speaking patients. When the Spanish interpreters are not available, or assistance with other languages is needed, the Cancer Center has access to foreign language interpreters through a telephone system. We also have a service for sign language to communicate with patients who are deaf or hard of hearing.
