Tanner Cancer Care Promise: What It Is and Why It Matters

When you are diagnosed with cancer, it can feel like your world is spinning out of control.

You may feel anxious and uncertain about what the future holds. That’s Tanner Cancer Care’s mission: to provide the care you need when you need it.

We understand that when you are first diagnosed, you may not know what to do next. That’s why we offer our 3-Day Cancer Care Promise.

Within three days of diagnosis, one of our team members will see you in the clinic and talk to you about your treatment options. We want to help ease your mind and help get you started on your journey to recovery.

How the promise works

Upon receiving a physician’s referral, cancer specialists at Tanner begin planning the best possible approach to defeating your particular type of cancer.

An oncologist — a physician specializing in treating cancer — reviews the referral and then plans an approach to care that uses the most advanced, proven techniques and treatments. Your oncologist also evaluates clinical trials for which you may be eligible and more, putting together a comprehensive plan to help you beat cancer.

The oncologist passes their notes to a patient navigator who provides a single point of contact to answer questions or address concerns about cancer treatment. The patient navigator will assist in:

  • Explaining diagnoses and physician orders
  • Understanding your treatment journey
  • Answering questions about cost and reimbursement
  • Arranging access to community and health system resources
  • Scheduling and attending appointments
  • And more

They will contact you for an initial treatment plan session and then begin scheduling all the necessary appointments and any additional diagnostics needed by the oncologists or surgeons.
