The Cancer Treatment Center offers the expertise of a patient navigator, a registered nurse who is experienced in oncology and is responsible for streamlining and coordinating the entire, often-complex diagnosis, treatment and follow-up process for cancer patients. This may include advocacy with insurance companies, assistance with scheduling and much more.
