4 Considerations to Help You Choose the Oncologists for You


3. Trust and Communication
It’s important that you trust your doctor implicitly and that you can communicate freely. Will you be able to contact your doctor outside of regular hours if you have any concerns? Do you feel that your doctor will take your personal decisions and wishes for treatment into account?

4. Practical Considerations
How far away is the doctor’s office? Are the doctor’s fees on a par with other specialist lymphoma doctors? Will your insurance company work with the doctor? Will all your treatment be covered by your insurance? Can you access your medical records online?

    Thanks for helping me now how to choose the best oncologist. My sister thinks that she may have some problems in that area and we want to be sure we work with the best doctor. That is really good advice to be sure we research the experience of the doctor and that they have had recent success.
