Patient Support Staff
At the Dorothy E. Schneider Cancer Center, we understand that cancer challenges you and your family in many ways -- mind, body and spirit. To help you during your cancer treatment, we provide comprehensive support services to assist you and your family from diagnosis through treatment and recovery.
Our oncology nurses in the radiation and infusion centers have specialty knowledge and skill to help take care of you and your family throughout your treatment.
Our clinical social worker helps you and your family cope with the emotional challenges of cancer, and refers patients to support groups and private therapy when needed.
We have specialty oncology dietitians who work with you and your family to evaluate the foods you eat and help develop personalized food guidelines that ease the side effects of cancer treatment.
Depending on your treatment, you may have questions about your insurance and the costs associated with your treatments. Our qualified financial counselors provide the information and resources you need to manage your health care finances so you can concentrate on your cancer treatment and recovery.
Our certified lymphedema therapists combine therapy and education for people who have or had breast cancer. And our support team includes physical therapists who help you recover function and quality of life after treatment.
Our radiation therapists are certified in radiation therapy RT(T) and work with you one-on-one to deliver your radiation treatment.
We have certified medical dosimetrists (CMD) who create and calculate your specialized treatment plan with your doctor. In addition, we have medical physicists (MS or PhD) who ensure the mathematical accuracy of your radiation plan and manage the quality and accuracy of our state-of-the-art radiation therapy equipment. Together with your doctors, they help create the best plan of care for you or your loved one.
