Staying Connected to Your Patient's Care
Temple oncology physicians understand the need for ongoing communications with referring physicians throughout therapy. Our approach is one of cooperative effort with you, providing you with timely, ongoing communication regarding your patients throughout their stay, until they are returned to your care.
The staff at the Cancer Center understands that quality health care requires not just expert diagnosis and management of complex conditions, but also communication with everybody involved—including the patient’s family and primary and referring physicians. We communicate regularly with each patient’s family, primary and referring physicians, and insurers to assess needs, answer questions, and lay the groundwork for ongoing care.
